We had a brief discussion and explore of Fakebook which allows teachers and students to create imaginary profiles that look like Facebook pages. Examples of how it could be used include creating a page for a historical figure or a literary character, famous politicians, scientists, artists or musicians.
The website is http://www.classtools.net/FB/home-page
Students could even, in theory, pretend to be different characters having a debate from a narrative storyline.
It could even be used in Science…DNA could have a Fakebook page with friends being other scientific terms.
What’s great about it is that it brings a place for contextual understanding whilst being in a format that students are likely to be familiar with and it engages them to be creative.
Some examples that I found so far…
Has anyone else had experiences of using Fakebook?
