Today I tried a very interesting tool.
With Fakebook you can invent a profile of any historical or fictional character. Your result will be a Facebook-like page!You can add images, links, "friends", comments and "likes"! It's very interesting and students can have a lot of fun. They can create their own pages or comment yours.
I think it could be very useful to study history or literature.
I created the following brief example with my students. Some time ago we watched "The king's speech" about king George VI (http://thetravellingteachers.blogspot.it/2014/01/holocaust-memorial-day-january-27th.html), so the Fakebook page is about the period between king George V death and the outbreack of world war II.
There are some quotes, original pictures and links to original videos, as well.
