What Are Avatars?

Picasso Head1


Mrs Grasso’s definition: an avatar is an image created to be used instead of your real photo in the online world.


“In computing, an avatar is the graphical representation of the user or the user’s alter ego or character. It may take either a three-dimensional form,[1] as in games or virtual worlds, or a two-dimensional form as an icon in Internet forums and other online communities.[2][3] ” (Source Wikipedia)


Here are some great Avatar creation websites.

Some of these you can design and email to yourself .

Some you may need to design then print screen and save into either a document or a paint program.

Enjoy 🙂
