Lots of ideas on how to use Voki in the classroom, just sort subject and grade and check for examples

grace n's curator insight, February 28, 2013 1:49 PM

This is how you can get to voki and signe up for an account. You can make and use your own voki.

M. Van Amelsvoort's insight:

Nice visual learning system. Study by semantic group. Hear the words, hear them in sentences, and get two visual annotations--a static image and a short video. Wonderful!

Visual vocabulary learning. Semantic groups of words with audio and two types of visual annotations. Very nice.

PowerPoint Animation Effect - How to Make a Night City with Lights

This is a tutorial for an advanced Powerpoint animation technique that shows a city at night with moving cars and blinking lights. It was done in PPT 2010 but can be done in other versions as well, since the effects used are not very complicated.

You can also use this technique a variety of other ways -- Christmas lights, fireflies, stars in the sky, electric signs -- and I'm sure in many other way...
