How I Use It
The classroom paid account price is affordable and allows the teacher to do batch imports of students. This took a little time but allowed the students to use their school provided login and password. I have created several lessons in which students write book reviews, describe a science topic or concept, explain school rules, cyberbullying, etc. Students must learn the importance between written and phonetic spelling so that their avatar speaks the words as intended. The finished products were then displayed on class wikis and school website. Students can use the product at school and home. Teacher control prevent inappropriate content from being published.
My Take
I have used Voki for several years. It is highly engaging for students as they can customie their avatar. The application can be differentiated with multiple input methods for the script (e.g. text, speaking on microphone, speaking on telephone).
