Want to "Friend" Benjamin Franklin?

My Fake Wall offers an online space for students to create Facebook-like profile pages for historical figures.  How fun is that?  Sign up for a free account, then create away!  Students can create pages under your profile, then they will all be listed in one area for you to view and share.  This would be a great, new way to display historical research.  These walls provide a real-life application that students truly understand.  I think they'll love it.  Take a look . . .


As with any online application, be sure to try it yourself before planning to use it with your students.  Almost any free application has ads on the page, so you want to be sure that they're appropriate for students to view.
