- Students will create an inventory of their own attributes, including skills, interests, and accomplishments
This learning outcome seemed like a perfect match for using the Web 2.0 tool, Voki. Voki is a website where you can create speaking avatars. An avatar is a sort of cartoon version of a person (like the avatar of Ms. Birdsall in the top right corner of this blog). To meet this learning outcome, students needed to create a Voki of themselves that told about their interests, skills and accomplishments. Students had a lot of fun exploring this web tool and were very successful in meeting the learning outcome! Click on the link below to see Division 9's avatars.
(Please note: The program only allows up to 90 seconds of speech per Voki. This meant that unfortunately for a few students who went into a lot of detail the last little bit of their inventory was cut off. Ms. Birdsall was still able to read what they had typed though.)
*Div. 9 students- If you do not see your Voki on the website, it is because we still need to fix something on it. We will do that at school tomorrow, then your Voki will be published too. - Ms. B.
