Avatars that talk . . .

I have a class blog for each of the grades that I teach (7, 8, 9, 10, 11). The main purpose of the blog is to post assignments and students can find the information they need to be successful there. I've been having a bit of fun by putting a Voki (talking picture) (http://www.voki.com) on the blogs (my favorite is a cat) and the students have gotten a big kick of it. One student has found another site called Blabberize (http://www.blabberize.com) and it takes this speaking avatar idea one step further. You can send an animated message. (Thank you Guga). Check it out!

Hi there!
*
Here in the portugues blog community we are awarding our fave blogs with the prize "Diz que até não é um mau blog", and I have awarded you this prize in my portuguese blog.
*
No one says it has to be a portuguese written blog so, once this is based in Portugal and I quite like it, I voted for your good work Ramona! ;)
