Kids today love their social networks. Fakebook can be a fun way for teachers to turn classroom assignments that students perceive as boring into fun. Fakebook can be used to create biographies on historical figures, fictional characters, book reviews, time line events, and sequence and outline the plot of a novel. The list could be endless.
Students start by editing names, friends lists, and profile information just as if they were creating a real Facebook page. They then proceed to adding posts, pictures and even YouTube video links. Work can be saved and edited at later times and finally printed when complete.
