Voki {Avatar Creator}

Avatar creation is kind of a big deal right now. Voki is a great tool for students to learn about animation through creating their own character on Voki. They will show how they can use technology to communicate with others. Next time your students need to present about a person or animal, have them use Voki to give their presentation. They'll love it - I guarantee it! 


Directions:

  1. Go to voki.com and click on TRY IT – It’s Free!
  2. An avatar will automatically be chosen for you. Choose a new one under customize your character
  3. Customize It – choose an outfit/accessories. You can also customize at the bottom where it gives you the choice to change hair, eyes, skin and mouth color or tweak the size of the characters mouth, nose, and body (height and width)
  4. Add a Voice – using the “T” key, type in a box what you want your character to say. Then press the play (triangle) button when you have finished typing. You can also change the voice and accent under the text box.
  5. Choose a Background – make sure you use the side arrows to explore all of the options.
  6. Publish & Share – Name your project, then click on “No Thanks, continue as guest.” 
Try it out & let me know what you think,
