Voki for Education, Online Communities, and More (Voki)

Here’s a great site that includes a video, Online Communities in the Classroom, which is a fascinating look at the use of online communities within the school community!  http://archive.teachfind.com/ttv/www.teachers.tv/series/better-learning-with-ict.html

As a note, Voki, which is mentioned in the video and is a free tool that allows you to create an avatar and have your avatar speak your words is developing an educational version with no ads! If you go to www.voki.com, you can sign up for updates on this new version! By signing up, you may also be among the first to have access to this new educational tool!

    My students love Voki, there are so many uses for it! My students used it on their blog, “If I Were President…” Here’s an example: http://kidblog.org/ROOM82012-2013/kamaria48286/if-i-were-president/

      I really enjoyed watching the Voki! What a great idea! Did you know that you could take all the Voki’s and place them into a Symbaloo webmix so they are side by side and easy to view as a group! Thank you so much for sharing an awesome idea!
