Talking Pets: An Alternative to Voki
Sadly, one of my districts blocked Voki several weeks ago. The site will not be reopened for student use or teacher use. Luckily, Katie Zorzi, a fabulous kindergarten teacher at Pfaff Elementary, shared Talking Pets with me. This site is very similar to Voki. Students can create and customize talking avatars. No log-in is needed, but students will need an email address to send the item to for "saving." I think this site is a viable replacement for Voki. The only limitations of the site are that it only contains animals, and embed codes are not provided.
