Today I decided to create my own avatar with Voki.com. I began in the morning having a play with the tools - the different character heads, eyes, mouth and even make up! I chose my outfit and then changed my mind at least 10 times! This behaviour has no resemblance to me in real life!!! I chose a background - a photo of one of my classrooms. In this classroom the kids designed and painted the tables themselves. The room was designed for group and independent workers, with a couch and recliner, and ample floor space. I recorded a voice over on my iPod because my laptop refuses to record for some strange reason even after checking all mic settings, etc. The message needs to be under 60 seconds or else it will not upload as I soon (or not so soon) learnt, so I have a short message to introduce myself.

Final result - Cool! Fun! Will use again!

Question - How have teachers/students used this in their classrooms?

I have a 'voki' on my blog--missibket.blogspot.com--and it is a hoot! I have a new message with each post, change my clothing, bling, and background. You can even upload a pic to be your background. I chose one pic I took in Italy to be mine in one post.

In my setting, voki is really useful since students can speak freely without feeling exposed. My ESL students loved it - quickly showed each other how to do it.
