Voki Tip of the Week: Use Voki to Start a Conversation


Teacher: Good morning class! How are you? What did  you do this weekend?

Student: Nothing…

Teacher: Really? You didn’t go outside, or go to a movie, hang out with your friends?

Student: I watched tv, slept…

Sometimes starting a conversation with your first class on Monday can feel like pulling teeth. Instead of playing this game of tug-of-war to get a conversation started, use Voki to help your students tell their weekend stories!

Try this: Each Monday, have your students create a Voki that describes their favorite part of the weekend. Have them elaborate on what happened, who was with them, and why it was their favorite activity of the weekend.

By encouraging your students to open up in the beginning of class, you are paving the way for a more communicative environment where students will be able to express their feelings, doubts, and ideas. Check out the Vokis below to see examples of how this exercise can work!
