• I participate in two eTwinning project “My
First ICT Hello” and “Meet me round the glog”
and first project activity was introducing
ourselves to pupils from other countries.
• We used Web 2.0 Tools Voki to record voice
avatars and with them introduse pupils.
• With Voki pupils safeness and privacy was
protected, because there is no pupils picture
• I was acquainted pupils with Voki that I
showed them how to create avatars. It was
very interesting to pupils who have created
their own avatars.
• Same time we practise introducing on English.

adding them to created avatars.

techniques in thet environment. So pupils are
quickly accepted this way of working.
