This is another fantastic online environment that allows students to publish oral information as a movie including characters, different camera points of view, movement of characters, gestures, etc.

The students can manage all the action easily by clicking and moving objects.  They include text for the characters dialogue.  It is a sophisticated program that can be used in a simple or elaborate context.

It is another excellent context for identity publishing and sharing.

Voki

Voki is a free service that allows you to create personalized speaking avatars and use them on your blog, profile, and in email messages.

It is great for education because you can use it to record information about anything.  You can personalise the avatar that you create and allow it to speak through your writing(text), uploaded audio and even through your phone.

My Identity Wiki

We have a wiki for the grade 5 and 6 classes for term 3 relating to their unit of work on identity.

wiki (Listeni /ˈwɪki/ WIK-ee) is a website that allows the creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages.

Through our wiki students and teachers can upload pages of information with text, images, links, widgets, etc, thus collaborating with others to produce a large repository of information about a particular topic, in this case identity.  Users are able to sign in and edit pages that others have created, either updating, adding and changing information already available.
