Tool # 1

Thank you, Karen, for taking the time to help us get started on this 11 tools. I really enjoyed learning how to create a Voki, and add it to my page. I would not have known how to add it to my page without your step by step instructions. Now that I know what "adding a gadget" means, I think I will be able to do it on my own. The explanation that the Voki is code and not an image was new information for me, so I am definitely learning as I go along.
I think this tool would be fun for students, and I can see a teacher using a blog in the classroom as another tool to check for understanding. Another use would be to have students research a particular piece of content and share their learnings.
Thanks for this new cool tool!
