Every once in awhile I come across some cool stuff on Facebook for educators. I came across a website recommended by Free Technology for Teachers called ClassTools.Net. What caught my eye is a program called Fakebook. With Fakebook, students are able to personalize a “facebook” template and save it. The students are able to create a “fake” facebook page that demonstrates what acceptable use of social media should look like. Once they have created their fakebook, have them submit it as an artifact. As always, provide them with a rubric and an example.
I am always on the lookout for tools to help me teach appropriate behaviors online aka digital citizenship. Here are the links for the Classtools website and their Fakebook template.
