Dailezz is a new micro-blogging site that lets you write text and use icons to say what you’re doing and how you feel. It has quite a few icons that can be used and, particularly nice for English Language Learners, if you place you mouse on an icon a short description of what it symbolizes comes up, too (you can also figure it out just by the picture, but having the text there could also provide a language-learning opportunity).
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend it for classroom use, and nor will I add it to The Best Places Where Students Can Write Online. Why? Because one of the icons is inappropriate for use in the classroom. In fact, I can’t think of why anybody would use the icon all (and I don’t consider myself a prude).
Though, I guess it might have some use in an adult classroom.
