Voki Avator

Voki Avator is a fun little website. Voki is the name of a service where you can create your own speaking avatars or characters. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating my Voki Avators. You will find a few of them throughout my blog site now that I have learnt about this new tool. It would be easy and fun to use this as a teaching tool in a classroom. For example if the students were learning about the environment you could create a Voki Avator as a National Parks and Wildlife Officer and this Voki Avator could give them some spoken information on how to protect the national parks. It just provides another way to communicate with the students rather then just standing up in front of the classroom teaching. "Avatars are excellent for online education. They provide the human interaction that is natural in classrooms and in the traditional learning environment" (Classrooms Without Walls).
