I sometimes need to use avatars when I create tutorials for my students. The one I prefer is the lady from the Tellagami app because she looks quite professional and even though you can’t customize her entirely for free any longer, you can still work on her quite well.
But a couple of days ago I remembered BuddyPoke, an app which I had never used and so almost forgotten.
BuddyPoke allows you to create really cute avatars and customize them, you can then use them with pictures or in videos. You can even make videos with two avatars.
I used it to create the guide to the visit of the epic citadel which I illustrated in my previous post and after that I kept on exploring it and found out that I can use it to make activities far more engaging than they actually are.
Here are some examples
Students can make up dialogues using two avatars
or they can create a presentation about any topic
–or they can make a collage of pictures and then incorporate a video using PicPlayPost – I think I have already said how much I like appsmashing 🙂
