I'm planning to begin using Vokis in my classroom. I made one this morning that gives instructions for one of my literacy workstations. While I was working on that, it came to me that this might be a GREAT way to communicate with some of my parents.
About 30% of my students parents do not speak English. Now, I don't speak Spanish, but there are several people at my school who do, & it would just take a few minutes for them to record a message using Audacity, then I could upload the Spanish to the Voki. HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE?
There are a couple ways Vokis can be delivered-- you can email a retrieval link, or embed the code on a blog (or on my classroom Moodle). I think I have hit on an idea here!
A couple more thoughts for uses in the classroom:
- Delivering instructions to a small group via the computer while I work with another small group.
- Students could create their own Vokis & then type in text for the Voki to read. Maybe a story or report?
