I remember a couple of years ago trying to get my voki inside of my notebook software. After failing miserably, I gave up and literally did not use voki much after. SMART Notebook 11, or “the game-changer”, as I call it, has the ability to run various types of widgets. One of those widgets, located in the SMART EXCHANGE, is the voki avatar.
Voki is a web based interactive avatar that is fully customizable to say dialogue that you type or say. It’s great for students to do creative storytelling, recite poetry, sing songs or pretty much anything that requires voice.
I’m going to introduce voki to my students by creating an avatar to give hints on certain questions. I’ve recorded a video that explains the process for embedding your voki to SMART NB11. It’s going to be an awesome addition to my lessons and I’m pretty sure that my students will agree.
The voki avatar was created by one of the many publishing companies that are a part of the SMART Ecosystem, called Robots and Cupcakes. Their content is pretty incredible and worth checking out.
