Brilliant! Nelson Mandela’s Life Story If Social Media Had Been Around

| 1 Comment

This short video shows how Nelson Mandela might have written about his life if social media had been around. A video like this could be a great model for students to see before they would do a similar project on a famous figure — whether they would create it out of pen and paper or use one of the tools on The Best Tools For Creating Fake “Stuff” For Learning list.

It could be a great “pre-essay” writing activity to help students get their info organized, and it could also serve as a fun way for students to to feel motivated to want to get more “touches” on materials they’ve already read.

Thanks to Holly Epstein Ojalvo for the tip.
