Tagxedo is a website that creates a picture using words. You can use Tagxedo for a lot of things like a mind map or describing something or how you feel. Basically, you can use it for anything! It’s a great way to present information in a different way.
Simply type in a selection of words on a chosen topic, chose a shape to represent the words, experiment a bit with the colours and you’re done!
This is an example of one we made about I.C.T at our school.
It is a pretty easy site to use. Sometimes it is tricky to find the right link, but if you have a bit of a play around you can work it out.
Voki is a cool website that lets you build your own talking avatar. You can use it to make a Voki for a blog, website, school work, homework, as a report or even for a blog post like this!
Voki is easy to use. First you choose a character (that’s the fun part). You get to choose from all sorts of different faces and backgrounds. When you are happy with how your Voki looks you type or say what you want it to say.
Voki is suitable for all ages. At UPPS everyone from Grade 2 to Grade 6 have used it before. With help, younger children could use it too. The only bit they might need help with is the typing when the Voki needs to talk.
I’ve made an example for you to look at. Hope you like it!

Build Your Wild Self is a really good for making fun pictures that you could use as a profile pic for Skooville or other things like that.
It is a great website for making characters or wallpaper. It lets you make a person that you can give all types of cool things, like wings, frog legs, gorilla arms and much more. You can save the photo on your desktop for backgrounds or send them to your friends.
This program is suitable and fun for all ages. I give it a 6.5/10. It could be a bit easier to get the photos and maybe add more poses.
Do you have any fun websites you would like us to review?
