Using Voki for Riddles

In P7 at Sciennes we have been swapping and creating riddles in class.

In the ICT Suite, each child created an Avatar (an online graphical persona) using Voki, which was then posted in a Riddles blog, speaking the pupil's words. It is a great tool for checking punctuation, because the children will become aware of incorrect punctuation when the Avatar speaks.

With support, all pupils managed to complete the activity in an hour. They logged in to the same Voki account, all using the same email address and password.

HTML code could then be copied from the Voki account and pasted into the Riddles blog.

Now create your own avatar using Voki.

We will then show you how to add it to this blog.
