Lately our students have been working on jazzing up their “All About Me” pages, so their page visitors are interested by the content they read, and are hopefully more likely to leave a comment, thereby starting a global conversation!
All of our students researched a joke and created a Voki to speak the joke on their page. A learning by-product of this activity was about punctuation: unless we type our text with correct punctuation, the Voki (after all, they’re only as smart as we make them!) won’t speak the joke intelligibly… We had to think hard about full stops, commas, spaces and general spelling… an excellent exercise in literacy.
Here is Will’s Voki:
