My Fake Wall

I have seen several PLN members share about their use of My Fake Wall for their students. I felt inspired to make this tool part of a project for 6th grade in the third trimester. I played around with it today and came up with a fake Facebook wall for Beethoven. It is super easy to use and while it is a bit ad laden, I think it will be a nice change up for the kids doing research projects. The key will be a standard email and password log in rather than individual log-in’s. If they have to create log-in’s it will add a whole extra class period. So just like with the Glog projects from first trimester, I will establish an account for the class. (I learned the hard way for the Glog project; this time we are pre-emptive!!)

Now I just have to sit back and wait until the third trimester rolls around in March!

    Are you finding that My Fake Wall is working consistently for you? I have had trouble with it. Which Internet browser did you use? We have slow loading times, missing buttons for uploading images, error message…would like to use it with 70 6th graders.

      I have only used it for an instructional tool thus far. My 6th graders won’t use it until May. I have used IE and Firefox to work on it. Have you contacted them directly?
