You can create your own Voki account at Voki.com
There are lots of different Voki avatars to choose from. Each Voki can be customized in terms of appearance, background, player theme, and voice. You can record your own voice or choose from several different digitized voices that can speak in different languages and accents.
Once you generate your Voki, you can embed it in any digital environment by copying and pasting the HTML code. Even better, there are buttons that allow you to automatically embed your Voki in many of the most popular digital worlds, including blogs, websites, and social media sites.

Your Assignment: Create a Voki, explore the Voki resources, and report back with your ideas about how you could use Voki in your classroom or professional practice.
