Cyber Pets

Cyer-pets are a great free download that children can easily access and use on their own wikki spaces, or bloggers. Cyper pets give a wide choice of animals that you can 'adopt', name and alter the colour. You can also carry out some basic operations with the pets such as making them move and feeding them. This is a great tool to use with children becasue it allows them to personalise their sites with their own choice of animals, and everyone can have their own pet. Other similar cyber pets, such as the cat and the alien could be used by the teacher on her screen as they 'follow' the mouse pointer around the screen, creating some interest and fun to the screen. The alien volki also allows for speech to be added which is useful as teacher's could provide instructions or information that children can access via the volki at a later date.
