Sergei Gridushko from Belarus started the mug shots project with his university students and I decided to join him with my 10th graders in Brazil.

Last week, my students opened an account with Blogger, Flickr and Bloglines and I asked them to photograph their mugs (or cups/bowls) over the weekend. This week they are going to upload the photos to their blogs and post an entry describing their mugs, saying how they got them, why they are important, how they are used and where they are kept. I am using my Live Journal account and Flickr for this kind of post. Later we will link our texts and photos to Sergei’s project

    Cool Bee! I wonder…how are you having your students use Bloglines with this project? Are you preparing an opml for them and having them upload it?

    What a great idea! I suppose the students’ mugs will reflect their character. And a great way to get students thinking and writing creatively.

    Una buena idea utilizar estas herramientas para trabajar con los estudiantes.
