Voki is a online site that allows you to create Avatars (a computer character) that talk.
I will introduce Flynn to the year 4/5 class at my local school. The class is studying sea animals. English is a second or third language for these children and I believe that the use of a avatar would engage the students.
I had the opportunity to create a avatar with a year 1/2 class on their iinteractive whiteboard. They loved it. It gave them the opportunity to practice making Standard Australian English sentances.
