Fake Tweet Builder

Fake Tweet Builder allows you to build a Twitter conversation and then save it as an .png

It is super easy to use.  You enter the user name, a colon, and their tweet. You repeat the process with the person the first user is talking to.  You can customize the conversation with avatars, colors, background images and more.

Fake Tweet Builder is a great way to interview a historic character or have two characters talk to each other.  You can create a Tweet to promote an event.  Make a tweet into a poster.  Create 'what not to do' tweets for digital citizenship lessons.  

How can you use Fake Tweet Builder in your classroom?

Stich Together Websites with Stich.It

Stich.it is a website that 'stiches' together multiple URLs into one short URL. I love to use stich.it when I have several sites I want my students to visit. In this video, you'll see how to create a stich with articles and Google forms to collect student responses.


So, what do you think? How will you use Stich.it?
