Tutorial: How to Create a Voki
Activity: Voki is a website where you can create a personalized, speaking (up to 60 seconds) avatar. For this assignment you can have your students create a character that is relevant to your class. It could be a book character, a presidential candidate or an important painter. If you would like the focus to be on something other than a person, like a math concept, you can have the kids create a likeness of themselves explaining an event or concept from class. The possibilities are endless. For more ideas, you can check out the Voki lesson plan page and search by grade and subject.
