 These web tools are ideal for creating avatars. There is also the possibility of creating a cartoon out of one's own pictures.

Creating a cartoon out of your real picture is a good way to disguise your real identity while in the same time preserving your own feel and touch.  The web tools below  are really helpful for cartonizing your pictures.

Online, I use my real name for many things. But sometimes, I prefer to use a pseudonym. Not because I want to anonymously harass people or post incendiary comments unscathed; no, I simply want to manage the impression I make, while still participating in diverse conversations and communities.

Funcionamiento de Voki para crear avatares

Los avatares permiten crear personajes que nos representan. Algunos servicios proporcionan herramientas de dibujo y edición para crear una imagen, pero otras añaden algo de movimiento y, sobre todo, sonido a esas creaciones. Esa posibilidad despliega un abanico de posibilidades para el aula nada desdeñable.

This is an interesting article about how easy it is to create a fictional internet reputation. Worth using with students I think.

Paulo Moekotte's comment, May 22, 2013 3:39 PM
