Post The Photographic Dictionary
The Photographic Dictionary http://www.thephotographicdictionary.org/home.html "is dedicated to defining words through the literal, figurative and personal meanings found in each photograph"

I first read about this site on Photojojo http://photojojo.com/content/inspiration/photographic-dictionary/ and thought wow what an interesting site. How can I use this in an ESL/EFL classroom.

Here is what I came up with

1. motivational tool: a way to get students excited about words and dictionaries
2. interesting flashcard for abstract words or new ways of looking at common words
3. as a game: display the picture and have students guess the word
4. as a class/school project: students choose a word. they creatively represent it through art (picture, drawing, video, song, poem, etc. )Then they publish it on a website.
5. at the very least, a quick way to display the lowercase English alphabet (the home page)

other ideas? :D
