Using Facebook in English class
 
Hi everyone!
I plan to have my students create a page for a fictional character using Facebook. I īll be like writing a biography, but on the internet and with photos. If some of you have already used Facebook with their students, I īd like to hear about your experience.

Thanks!

I use fake book in class .This tool allowed them to create a profile, add friends, then post and comment from different viewpoints.  Students really enjoyed bringing their book characters into the 21st century!

and itīs free.  Click here to see examples.

Thank you for the link.
It is possible also to make one īs work on a personal Blog. So each pupil will have his personal Blog. and they can register in www.spotblg.com
Then the teacher can check their work on line. I hope it is useful.
