Future Me is a neat service that lets you write an email to your future self and have it delivered to your email inbox at a time that you schedule. It’s easy to use Future Me. To use Future Me just type your email, select the date you want it to be delivered on, and then enter your email address. You can choose to keep your letter private (default setting) or make your letter public (anonymously) and placed in the gallery of letters.
Applications for Education
When I learned about Future Me my first thought was that it would be great to have students use Future Me at the beginning of a school year. Students could write about what they hope to learn that year, what they do or don’t like about school, and goals that they have for themselves. Then at the end of the school year students can read their letters and see how they’ve changed over the year.
