Although Facebook may not be available in many schools, there are a number of applications you can use to recreate look-alike pages with students . My fake wall lets you create a fake wall, unrelated to the Facebook site, with commonly recognisable features.
Students can use the site to explore historical and fictitious characters, narrative and more by creating conversations through posts and comments. One example given on the site is a fake wall from Elizabeth I’s perspective.
Whether it be as an alternative to book reviews or simply a way to explore relationships between people from fiction and history, My fake wall is a fun way to engage with character, story and biography.
