What are your hopes and dreams for the future

Million Futures is site I have just come across for which I can see many applications for use in the classroom. Million Futures is a UK based initiative which asks people to write their hopes and dreams for the future on a paper plane and launch it into the air to circulate with the collective hopes and dreams of others.

I can imagine using this site with your students to respond to their learning to give an authentic message. They could be looking at sustainability, participating and contributing to society, caring for each other, future focus, the list could go on. The students could launch their hopes and dreams on a paper plane to join the hopes and dreams of others.

What would your paper plane say?

Hi Jane. Am over in the UK and happened to meet with one of the researchers for this project. I mentioned you'd blogged about and he seemed quite blown away. I've just emailed the link so you may hear from him... Have a great U Learn.
