The students in grades 3-5 brought their Chromebooks to the library for 2 classes and learned how to make an avatar. The students had a blast using technology and creating different characters.
They helped each other using the new skills. We had good discussions about when avatars might be needed, for example, when students are too shy or anxious to share orally themselves or if they are nervous their English skills aren't good enough.
Ask your child to show you how to create an avatar using Voki at home!
