Talking Avatars

What is an Avatar?

An avatar is a computer user’s representation of himself/herself or alter ego,[citation needed] whether in the form of a three-dimensional model used in computer games,a two-dimensional icon (picture). Source: Wikipedia

I would use it with Middle 1 students. These are 3D Avatars. I have just created a postcard where the avatars can speak. You can add video, sound, text to speech and even animate our text. Students can create a character, digital you , 3D Greeting cards, slideshows, vacation postcards, commentaries and animated shows. It is easy to embed your productions. Take a look at my first 3D animated postcard

My students love to create their talking Voki. Unfortunately the computers at school are slow therefore we can`t save their work. Voki is one of the favourite tools for my students. Their imagination is the limit!!!
