Thing 7a: Create Your Own Avatar

I really like Tammy Worcester as a resource and wanted to add her blog to my Reader.  She has presented at GAETC many times and always has great lessons and ideas to share.  I own all of her books and adapt many of her lessons to teach my students. 

I got a little sidetracked but I ended up following her link to creating my avatar in My Avatar Editor.  I think the students would love to make a quick avatar of themselves and insert it into their blogs.

I collaborate a lot with the art teacher doing graphic arts projects, clay animation, etc.  and I thought of her immediately.  I don’t think she would like this program to create an avatar because the art concepts are limited but I thought we might use a program we have at school, Image Blender, for the students to create their own original avatars.
