Social Dummy

socialSo for my forthcoming assembly I wanted to make some fake profiles for a spoof featuring some of our teachers. I found a great little app called Social Dummy, which allows you to make fake posts on social media; Twitter, Instagram, snapchat, you name it.. Now, although these apps may be networks pupils shouldn’t yet be on, it is naive to assume their not, and even more naive to not hook into these as a stimulus for their writing.

Although not used for learning in my assembly..


Think about it, they so easily could. We’ve all done the persuasive text on your ‘headteacher wanting to ban break time’, but what if we had proof to show the children..

Or a tweet from Harry Styles?

Your inspiration is endless. And the children don’t need to know it’s not real now do they…
