Create Avatars With Your Students

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by on April 25, 2013 and tagged ,

I love the ways that we can use the avatars that we have created for a variety of educational purposes.  They certainly bring fun and joy to our lessons. Here are my favourite avatar makers:

If you are a fan of Simpsons, here is an avatar maker that lets you simpsonize yourself.

SouthParkStudios allows you to create South Park characters’ avatars.

RasterBoy is another avatar maker that you can create an avatar from the beginning. You can fully customize your character, play with the colors and attach different objects to your avatar.

With Mini-Mizer, you can create lego characters and download them.

DoppelMe is another favourite of mine, though you have to sign up to be able to use all the features. It is fully customize and you can add accessories and objects to your avatar.

BuildYourWildSelf is one of my favourite web tools that can also be used for creating avatars.

FaceYourManga is another avatar maker that you start from scratch to create one.

and here are a few ideas to use avatars in education:

Avatars makers are very easy to use so you and your students can easily create them.

If you don’t want to use your students’ real pictures for safety reasons, avatar makers are great way to replace.

It’s a great way for students to create their unique avatars to represent their personalities online.

Students create their avatars and talk about why they have chosen them.

Teachers can gather all the avatars of the students and students guess which avatar belongs to whom.
