I was talking with a teacher the other day about innovative "Word Walls" and how students demonstrate the ownership of the new words. We brainstormed ways for them to visualize the words in pictures through a "word display" that might involve blank cell phone pics but the interior of the cell phone was a vocab word and a picture. We talked about students designing a Visual Representation of a word as an "APP" that would live on a giant iPad bulletin board.
