Using Vokis to Help Students Proofread

What’s a Voki?

A voki is a talking avatar. Ms.Oehler’s classes created vokis so they could listen to their writing aloud and find mistakes that they may have missed otherwise.

Example 3

We are currently using a Voki on broadcast to advertise for the holiday store. Thanks Ms. Burris for creating it!

What great ways to use Vokis! What other ways have you used them in your classes?

Google Apps For Education

3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade teachers and students are getting excited about using Google Apps for Education in their classes. This month they've logged in, created their first google docs, and shared documents with their teachers.

Ms. Uhlig's 4th grade class is using a shared Google Presentation to work with a partner on their Famous Texans Project.
