Here's a great resource for inspiration on how students can make their own fake Twitter pages. This is also a project idea. This is a great way to study history, politics, science, or any content area where students are studying historical figures or leaders in the field. This site does it for you, but would be a great jumping off point to a Photosohop project where students use Photoshop to design their own fake Twitter page. After studying a famous historical figure, students can "summarize" what they have learned by creating a fake Twitter page with a possible tweet from that person. This requires a lot of higher order thinking. What would the person say? What hashtag might they use? What might their username be? What would their background or avatar look like?

Before creating their "fake" Twitter pages in Photoshop, students should look at the link provided in this resource for inspiration. Then they should also check out various "true" Twitter pages and tweets on Twitter from present-day famous people who are leaders in their field. For creating the background page, and have a repeating pattern in the background page, see also the "Photoshop for Kids: Patterns" tutorial. For creating the avatar, see also the "Reveal Yourself: Create a custom Avatar!" post by Mike Skocko.
