    • Pros of Speaking Character Usage
      We are living in a society where technology is being used by our current and future students on a daily basis. We must keep up with that.
      They make for a very interesting and powerful way to grab the attention of our students.
      We now have a way to extend our lessons and to allow our students to personalize their responses.
    • Cons of Speaking Character Usage
      They are time extensive to create and implement correctly into a lesson.
      The use of technology may be changing the communication technique of our students.
      The can be expensive to use as some sites cost money to create.
