What is an avatar?
In the world of blogging, many people use an image, called an avatar, as a representation of themselves. Many adults who blog under their real names use a real photo, but some people like to create an image in order to maintain their privacy. Mrs. Tolisano blogs under the name “langwitches” because she speaks three languages, and she has created a little “lang-witch” to use as her online avatar.
Today you will create an avatar to represent yourself on the 4th grade blog. You may either use one of these sites or you may use Pixie or Skitch to hand-draw your avatar or you may choose an image from Pics4Learning.
After you design an avatar, you will take a screenshot in skitch, log in to the blog and add your avatar to your profile. Finally, please leave a comment on this post describing why you created the avatar you did. Your avatar will show alongside your comment.
