"A Voki " is a free service that enables teachers and students to express themselves on the Web in their own voice, using a talking character. Anyone can customize their Voki to resemble them or look like many types of characters, such as people, animals, historical figures, and many more. A Voki can speak using your own voice, an uploaded file, or by typing in a message (called text-to-speech). Your Vokis can be posted on your class blog, website, or anywhere online."
"Studies show that using technology in education improves students' achievements. Voki is a unique tool to engage your students in creative expressions. As Albert Einstein once said: "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge."How Can You Use Voki in the Classroom?
With the unveiling of Voki for Education...they have created a Teacher's Corner Forum and Lesson Plan Bank. Since Voki for Education just rolled out - there are not a whole lot of Elem Ed. lesson plans but I image within a few months, there will be a slew of lessons on how educators are integrating Voki into their curricula!
