In the first school district I was hired in, I recall my superintendent lecturing us on 21st century learning and how if we didn't have an avatar already our homework was to make one! This shocked me at first. Of course I had an avatar, I had a different one for each hobby I partook in. I just never thought avatars would be mentioned within the school building. For those who are unaware, an avatar is just a symbolic representation of who you are online.
