Spoof Websites


Teach-ICT does not own any of the websites below. The links have merely been added to enable teachers to choose whether they wish students to visit spoof or 'fake' websites.

It is strongly suggested that teachers discuss the content of these websites with students after any investigation and make students aware that the content is not to be believed.
