A Voki is a customizable, speaking avatar. Students begin by choosing a character style and then may begin changing the look using different clothes, accessories, hairstyles and even background scene. Once the avatar has been created, students can then give the character a voice by either recording or typing in a script. Vokis can then be saved to a blog or website or sent via email.
How to use Voki in the classroom:
- Students can use Vokis in the world language classroom as a way to practice their speaking.
- Students can create Vokis to represent characters in books.
- Students can create a Voki of a historical figure and record a script.
- Students can create a Voki as a digital representation of themselves and record any oral presentation.
