How I Use It
This is a great resource to use for creativity and digital story telling. Students get to create a character of any type (animal, person, object, etc.). Then, they can have the character speak for them. The students can type in what they want the character to say even changing the speed, pitch, sound, etc. of the voice. The character "comes alive". Students become very engaged with it.
My Take
I love this teaching tool. I love that you can create 100s of characters to fit your topic. For instance, I created a dog that looked like Toto (Wizard of Oz) to model the requirements for a book report. I have also had lower functioning students who were able to have success with this because it is non-threatening and speaks for them. The only part I do not like is that you only have 30 seconds for the video for the unpaid version. However, that is typically enough time to get out enough information to students.
