There are so many ways in which you can use voki, depending on the task or the time of year. For homework at Christmas time, I got my students to make up vokis wishing me a Merry Christmas or telling me what they plan on doing during their Christmas holidays. Below are a couple of examples. Some of the more timid students opted for typing in the message and not using their own voices. Both options are valid and the important thing is that they enjoy it and get some English practice at the same time.

Let students be creative at Christmas time by making comics with TOODOO. Although there isn't a lot of writing involved, they do have to invent a short dialogue and get it corrected (hopefully by the teacher and not by google translator!) before putting their comic online. They seemed to enjoy the activity and I'm hoping they'll use it for expressing themselves on other occasions now that they've become members.
