Fakebook for teaching students
Classtools is a great tool for teachers to find QR codes, Fakebook ( fake facebook), Twister ( a fake Twitter) It is a fun way to interact students with social media without the pressure of the live feed of social media.
As always trying to keep in mind Digital Literacy Standards, we want our students to be engaged but safe. When using Classtools they have a safe world that they can create profiles of philosophers, writers, artists (etc.) and post pictures and texts about them. This is exciting for them because it is taking what they do in a normal day-to-day situation and related the tool with the information they are learning in a fun way.
