Voki - Express Yourself!
Voki is a website that allows you to express yourself by creating your own avatar to deliver information. The website offers different lesson plan ideas and resources that you can use in your classroom. You can find these resources in the Teacher's Corner. Students can create an avatar to present information to the class. This would motivate students to participate. Students would have fun using their own avatar and creating their message. This is also an effective language tool. You can register for free to create audio messages up to 60 seconds. You can choose to use your own voice or you can choose another voice to read your information for you. Voki uses text-to-speech in over 25 languages. This would be a great way to give your class choices when creating presentations. I created a Voki sample to show you how Voki can be used in your classroom. Please let me know if you would like help using Voki in your classroom.
