Using Image Prompts to Inspire Writing & Speaking Activities

As a teacher you can create classes and assign writing tasks to students. The students do their writing tasks within the platform and can publish and share them there. This is a little like posting to a blog, but within a safe environment.

Students can comment on each other's postings and collect them into a gallery. The site also has an interesting tool to add voice recordings, so you can use this for speaking activities too.

The site is free to use with up to 40 students, and they can produce up to 5 postings each. After that you have to have a premium account, but it is very reasonably priced, especially if you choose the whole school solution.

You can also access the writing prompts without signing up by going to:

WriteAbout is a really useful tool to get ideas for student writing projects.
