Lesson idea – write a fake text message conversation

Had to blog about this latest idea I discovered on my Twitter feed! Using this handy SMS generator tool children can create an iPhone-style text message conversation, then save it for editing later, share it using a QR code or sending a unique URL or embed it into a blog or website.

The possibilities are endless – what would 2 characters in a book text to each other? What would Queen Elizabeth I text to Sir Francis Drake? How would you respond to when a friend texts you with this problem?

The classtools.net site also has a number of other useful tools, including ‘fakebook’ and a QR game generator.

  1. This is an interesting tool, but my concern is how do you monitor what is being said by students before they share it with each other?
