Create a Talking Otter


Build Your Ottogram allows you to design your own otter, including clothing, headgear, and sunglasses, and then have him/her say what you want him/her to say (through a text-to-speech feature).  You can email the url, and then have it posted on a website.

I don’t know where they come up with this stuff, but it’s great for English Language Learners.

I’ve place the link on my Examples of Student Work page under…..Student Talking Otters.
