Character Analysis is now in the Classroom 3-Minute Problem Solver series.

Every kid in the world (okay that's a slight exaggeration, but not by much) uses Facebook, as do most teachers.

In fact, if you see a student looking at their smartphone, it's likely logged into their Facebook account.

So, how cool would it be if you could bring the Facebook experience into your classroom?

Especially if you could modify it in a way that you could use the “Facebook” pages for character analysis, historical figures, or current events?

Well… BAM… you can, with Fakebook, from the creative team at Classtools.

You can use FAKEbook to create a Fakebook page and then deploy it for character analysis or to review and analyze an historial figure.

character analysisWhat a fun way to teach a subject, do character analysis, analyze and report on an historical figure, or just about anything else you can come up with. The tool looks a lot like Facebook, so most students will warm to it immediately. Getting started is about as easy as any app you'll use. The student starts by collecting all of the files, images, and other materails that will ultimatealy end up in the character analysis. Then, they simply upload those into a new Fakebook page, and go onto customize the entries however they see fit.

Have you created a Fakebook page for character analysis or some other classroom activity?  What do you think?  Do you have any examples you'd like to share?  Simply comment in the section below and let us know what you've been up to.
