Thinking Cap Thursday!

Grab your thinking cap and start brainstorming, and then participate in this week's Thinking Cap Thursday! How can you and your students use this week's Website of the Week (W.o.W.)? Please share your ideas in the comments section at the end of this blog post. 

W.o.W. (Website of the Week)ClassTools.Net is one of my favorite websites to incorporate into trainings with teachers and lessons with students! There are so many opportunities for you to engage your students and for students to create products.

Digital Citizenship Idea: Create a fake social media account using Class Tool's Fakebook. Intentionally include all of the "personal" information about the fake individual. Then, during class with the Fakebook profile displayed, ask students what they know about the individual or how else could they learn/figure out additional information about the individual. Discuss what information is safe to publish on their own personal social media accounts. Finally, allow students to create a Fakebook profile about themselves that demonstrates their understanding of good digital citizenship.

Now, it's your turn! Take a look at all of the fun tools on ClassTools.Net. Which tool(s) on the site can you use with your students (or staff)? Share your ideas in the comments section below this blog post.
