These two websites have many versatile uses sure to spice up your next classroom project. Voki.com allows students to create their own character and then record a message for the character to deliver. Blabberize.com allows students to upload a photo, outline the mouth, and then record a message so it appears as if the photo is speaking.
1. Oral reports and presentations are the two most obvious uses for these websites. If you have assigned reports on historical figures, consider having your students find a picture of their subject and record their report so the historical figure can tell the class about himself/herself.
