Get a Voki now!

If you have not read Steve Dembo’s Digital Passports post on Voki, you really need to do so now. Between grades being due today at my school and re-imaging the first of about 300 computers for next year I’ve not had a chance to check my personal blog RSS feeds. I missed out on reading about Voki until tonight’s what I thought was just going to be a social event with several DEN and prospective DEN people. That’s until Karen showed up and started raving about Voki, and Steve of course.

Our supposed laid back gathering turned into a full blown Voki session. Each of us created our own characters. Our homework was to put a voice to the avatar. As Steve pointed out, you can use a microphone, call in, have them call your OR type the text in. I found typing in the text, that you were VERY limited on the amount you could say.

As my first DEN event like this, I thought it went quite well. I can see myself doing more. Once we finished with our characters, we all had a chance to talk and share ideas on blogging, RSS, internet safety and the importance of being connected to other teachers to share and collaborate. Thanks to Karen S, Barbara L, Diane D, Elizabeth H, Debbie B (and Donovan!) and Woodrow P for making it a great night!

Oh yea! Anyone wish to take a guess who that character up top looks like???
