Welcome to FameCity.org, an educational social network for inquiry-based biographical research. On this site, students create profiles for famous historical figures as part of a biography research project. But this is just the first step. Next, students have to interact within a social network as their historical figure. They post status updates, share pictures, comment on other profiles, and even friend other historical figures. This requires a much higher level of understanding about the historical figure than a simple biography. Rather than just finding facts and regurgitating them, students must synthesize information and empathize with their figure.
