What is a Voki you might ask?
A Voki is a talking avatar or widget you can add to your sidebar or in a post. Here is an example I created earlier today.
There are many ways in which Voki can be used in your classroom.
- You can have students create the free version and then send you the code or permalink to add it to your class blog. Students can either type in their message or use a microphone and speak it directly into the Voki.
- You can create a Voki Classroom where you have total control over the vokis students create – this costs money every year.
Here are some links regarding pricing and FAQs about Voki.
Visit Mrs Moore’s blog – Easter around the world to see Voki in action on both sidebar and in post.
I will be writing a step by step guide for creating a free Voki and it will be in the Students as Bloggers blog within the next week.
Remember to leave a comment here saying where you could use a Voki in class.
