What: As soon as teachers received the news that many schools would start the 2020-21 school year in virtual spaces, educators across the country began creating “bitmoji classrooms” to share with their students. These virtual classrooms, created on a Google or PowerPoint slide, enable teachers and others to design and personalize online classroom spaces that convey important information about who they are and create welcoming and inclusive classroom environments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will explore what social identity is and the important aspects of their social identities.
  • Students will create their own virtual spaces and choose the aspects of themselves they want to represent.
  • Students will reflect on a situation where a teacher was put on leave because of items in her bitmoji classroom, which will prompt them to consider the importance of conveying values.

Target grade level: Grades 7-8/HS
