Version 5. 0 (The one about Analog Twitter and Fake Stuff)

Fake It With (Or Without) Technology

It's no secret that students of all ages want to communicate using the coolest tools like text messages, Twitter, and Facebook, and it has become part of our jobs to help them learn to do it effectively, kindly, and correctly. A great way to start these lessons is by FAKING IT online using tools like Fakebook, Fake Tweet Builder, and Fake iPhone Text.

Another way is to have students "Analog Tweet" on the wall in the classroom or (even better) hallway. Here are some templates you can print to get started. I'd love to see a picture if you decide to use this idea in your classroom!
