What is a Voki?

Get a Voki now!

Over the last few weeks I have been introducing my Second Grade students to Vokis. The kids will say something like, "It's this really cool site where you can make something that talks and moves. It can be a person, cartoon, or an animal. You can dress it and change the way it looks and then embed it into your wiki or blog by copying the code that is created. The kids love it and I have fun too. It could be used for students to create something that can go online without readily identifying them. Activities could include students sharing their own ideas, being able to express themself, listen to for fluency, introducing vocabulary and the list for learning is endless.
