If you’re not familiar with Bitmojis, you’re missing out on all the fun! Bitmojis is an app that allows you to create your own personal avatar. Sounds like fun huh? It’s not only fun in our personal lives, it can be a powerful tool to use in the classroom. Let’s face it, anytime we can integrate technology into our students’ day, the greater chances we have keeping them engaged and excited about learning.
The app is available through iTunes and on Chrome Extension. Once the app is downloaded you begin to create your own unique avatar. You can select face shape, hair style, hair color, eye color, makeup color palette, and you even get to pick your favorite outfit.
Here are a few examples of how you can integrate Bitmojis into your classroom:
Use your Bitmoji to draw attention to key concepts.
Your avatar can be used to invite or encourage students to participate in a class discussion.
Create a digital story or creative PowerPoint slides.
Reward and acknowledge students for their successes.
