We created voki avators that describe a new word we learned in one of your classes. We had a few minutes to quickly come up with a word and figure out how voki works on our own. Our goal was to manage our time wisely and not waste a lot of time on deciding what our avator would look like. We also paid attention to making sure the avator spoke clearly, providing correct spellings and choosing an appropriate computer generated voice to describe our new word and how we learned about it. We shared our avators with our class teachers by sending them a link via e-mail. Press the play button on each avator below to hear about some of our new words.
We are looking forward to seeing more voki avators used to reflect on learning across other subjects. You can create your own avator for free at the voki website.
Students in grade 6 learned how to make quick animations as short videos. We learned how to use Go!Animate to create videos that helped us reflect on at least one of our school dispositions. As members of our school community we are expected to be;
First, we created storyboards on paper to help us make sure our videos would teach someone about our dispositions. Then the fun began – creating our videos. We hope you learn something from us.
