Avatars in the Classroom
An Avatar is a digital cartoon representation of a real person. Students relate to Avatars because Avatars are the characters they become in many video and computer games. Tammy Worcester describes how to make one and how to use it in your class at this site: http://www.tammyworcester.com/TipOfWeek/TammyWTechTipOfWeek/Entries/2009/9/18_Tip_74_-_My_Avatar_Editor.html
Meet Noodles, my Avatar!
Just a few examples of integration are creating stories on PowerPoint and using the Avatar as a main character, or using the Avatar for an informative report. Bring gaming fun to the class!
