Thing 14: Bitmoji Fun - Cool Tools for School
Summer 2020 UPDATE Since you may have landed here looking for info about #BitmojiClassrooms and #VirtualLockers I’ve added some updated info. BitmojiClassrooms and VirtualLockers are all the rage this summer as librarians, teachers and other educators prepare for more online teaching and learning than we’ve ever seen before. What are they and how do I make one? Bitmoji Classrooms are simply engaging (hopefully?) Incorporate links to lessons, readings, classroom resources.Create a whiteboard space for announcements, displaying student work and so much more.Add a background image and other graphics to “decorate” your space. School librarians created some of the earliest virtual spaces a long time ago! (back to the original 2019 post) Bitmojis are fun cartoon character emoticons that you can personalize to look like a whimsical version of you or maybe a wacky alter-ego! Remember the popular Bitstrips cartoon and avatar creation tool? Bitmoji is available as an iOS or Android app.
