Repeating Yourself? Use Voki Instead!

Mr. Dempsey, 6th grade teacher has been using Voki's, online avatars in his classroom to introduce topics to his World Culture classes.  He says, "it's a great way to say the things I would normally have to say over and over again for every class, and the kids love it."  When I walked into his room today, he had one of Borat up on his computer.  

Voki is a great way to communicate with students because it allows the presenter to become a character.  In order to use Voki, you can type in text and your Voki will have an automated tone to it, you can call in, use a microphone to record what you want your Voki to say, or you can upload a prerecorded file.
