    • Using voki in the ‘esl’ classroom
      Many practical applications of VOKI
      • Recording student speech
      • Incorporation of writing/audio
      • Communication with ‘Pen Pals’
      • Increased exposure to native English speakers
      • Increased dialogue in the target language between students and classmates
    • ESL ACTIVtIES:
      Vocabulary
      • Students study/learn a list of new vocab words
      • Use VOKI to:
      Record
      • Pronunciation of the new word
      • Use the new word in a complete sentence
      VOKI can give the students the opportunity to be creative and fun as they are studying the new words
    • Esl activities (cont.)
      Online component:
      • Question & Answer
      Teacher creates his/her own VOKI
      • Posts a discussion styles question
      Students create their own VOKI
      • They listen to the discussion question
      • Then respond to it with their VOKI
      • Record their speech
      Combines Listening and Speaking skills
    • Esl activities (cont.)
      Grammaticality Judgments:
      • Students correct errors in sentences
      Teacher creates VOKI
      • VOKI reads a series of sentences
      • Each sentence contains an error of the grammar point being studied
      • Students identify & correct the error
      Students create their own VOKI
      • Using VOKI, they record the corrected version of the sentence
    • Science classroom : Fourth Grade : Author Stephanie Bushman
      Subject: studying the skeletal structure
      Tasks are to:
      Learn and identify bones
      Fill out a skeletal chart
      Create a VOKI
      VOKI has ‘broken’ a bone
      VOKI is used to inform the class which bone it has broken
      Rest of class guesses where the bone is located
      Real World use
    • Ease of use
      Relatively easy to get started
      The set up is user friendly
      No great tech requirements
      PowerPoint embedding was easy
      (ppt 2010 required)
      There were minor glitches along the way
      Editing
      edits made to VOKI after publishing did not always change when embedding a second time
      Multiple versions of the same VOKI
      For this presentation, I though it better to stay with one VOKI
      I had to build the VOKI from scratch each time
      Very time consuming
      Difficulties with VOKI
    • Innovative
      Skills primarily used
      Listening
      Speaking
      Writing (text box option)
      More practice : Less learning
      This is not:
      An ideal way for a teacher to pass on information
      Or ideal for lectures or grammar explanation
      This is:
      A nice way for students to take an ‘oral test’
      To practice oral skills in a Q & A environment
      Give their teacher evidence of their ability to comprehend/respond to information
      Summary of voki
    • The end
      Goodbye
      &
      Thanks for listening!
