Voki intro

Excitement as the Voki comes together.
This week we learned about Vokis. We spent a bit of time learning the ins and outs of creating Vokis on the SMARTboard as a whole group last week. This week we went to the lab and spent a bit of time exploring and creating before students were asked to create a Voki that looked like themselves. This really got the creative juices flowing.

Totally engaged!

When students were finished, they  were to have their Voki talk by telling their name and something they liked by using the microphone option. We felt this would be the easiest for 1st graders to handle. Unfortunately, we ran into some technology glitches (love technology when it works, but a good lesson for the kiddos to learn... it doesn't always) so.. we'll try that again next time. Seeing as this was an exposure lesson for future projects we won't worry about it.

The kiddos really seemed to enjoy this project, and were thoroughly engaged for the entire time.
Check out a couple of our finished products. Can you see the similarities between the student and the Voki?
A striking resemblance don't you think?


  1. I just LOVE Voki!! I'm using it as a final project option for my fifth graders. They have been so excited to get to this part of the project. I can't wait to try it with my other grades. (I'm the Media Specialist at my school.)


  2. Hey Malchow! Who took those first two pictures? Boy, must be some photographer!! LOL ;) Oh, and before I forget...I figured out how to get around the 'glitch'. Pain in the tushy, but works...

  3. Hi there! This is great! It's so much fun to see Voki being used by the young ones.

    Can we ask what the "glitch" was? If you email us at, we'll be happy to help.
