Voki speaking avatars can be used in many ways in the classroom. The teacher could use it as a substitute in small increments, give the students a different voice to listen to, or something different to look at while still hearing a familiar voice. Voki can also be used to make lessons more interesting and accessible. Students can use Voki to create a presentation and classmates will have fun listening to it. It could also be a good first step towards telecollaborative projects, as some students may need to get used to having themselves recorded.
Students could use Voki to record and present a/an:
- book report
- inventor report
- author biography
- animal report
- saint report
- poem to be read for fluency or one created by the student
- All About Me project at the beginning of the year
Teachers can use Voki to record:
- an oral pronunciation of vocabulary for ESOL students
- welcome students and parents to a website
