    Many practical applications of VOKI
    • Recording student speech
    • 16. Incorporation of writing/audio
    • 17. Communication with ‘Pen Pals’
    • 18. Increased exposure to native English speakers
    • 19. Increased dialogue in the target language between students and classmates
    • Students study/learn a list of new vocab words
    • 20. Use VOKI to:
    • Pronunciation of the new word
    • 21. 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
  • 22. 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
    • 23. Then respond to it with their VOKI
    • 24. Record their speech

    Grammaticality Judgments:

    • 26. Each sentence contains an error of the grammar point being studied
    • 27. Students identify & correct the error
    Students create their own VOKI

  • 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
  • 28. 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
    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
  • 29. Innovative
    Skills primarily used
    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
