Inspiring Raw Material
Here are some videos, paintings, musics, campaigns, adverts, actions that could inspire us for some future projects. We could give them a new twist so that they could be used for a new purpose in our lessons.

Montblanc launched a contest few months ago. It consisted in filming 1 second of beauty. I love the idea and wanted to do the same with the pupils.
The idea is still to be determined but I had the idea to launch a pictures contest. Many options are conceivable:
- Pupils have to take 1 picture representing their school. They have to write a text that explain the pic (or a mp3, or both) and the picture must be original and taken with a mobile phone.
- Pupils have to take 2 pictures. One representing the most beautiful thing they know around them and One representing the most awful thing they know. They have to write or record an explanation. the pictures must be original and taken with a mobile phone.
We then expose their work in an exhibition with a vote.
What do you think? Are you in?

Some of the French pupils would like to become pen pals with pupils from America or Scotland. Are you up to find someone to talk to? What about writing messages on the blog or even using the software SKYPE to communicate?
It would be great to respect the following rule: write your message in the foreign + the native language. What do you think?
Here is the place where you can begin to correspond. Just post a message as I did before! Have fun and make friends!!
Lauura (France) is waiting for you!!!

The following advert is for Google's Street View. The concept is that at the top left hand corner it displays an original genuine advert and it suggests that the hotel's ad is here misleading. The Google's ad plays on the decay which exists between the advert and reality.
Possible Xbloggtation: Could be interesting to make pupils react on Google's legitimacy to criticize another advert. Indeed, what if the hotel was really welcoming? What about the persons working hard for this hotel? What could be the consequences of Google advert? Aren't they patronizing?
