Tool #1: AI-Powered Emoji Generator

Looking for an AI-powered emoji maker? Check out this Emoji Generator. You will find many examples like the one shown above. The key to an amazing emoji? The quality of your prompt. For example, in line with my penchant for owls, I offered this prompt:

An horned owl with a happy smile, dressed in arcane robes with blue and silver runes, holding a staff aloft

Of the tools on this list, the AI-powered Emoji Generator above will cost you $9.99 for a lifetime license. Too much awesomeness? Let’s take a look at some simpler, less expensive, albeit powerful, emoji mashup tools.

Tool #2: Google’s Emoji Kitchen

One quick emoji maker you can get started with is Google’s Emoji Kitchen. To get access to it, type “emoji kitchen” into Google’s Search box. Then, click on “Get Cooking” button. This will make it easy for you to create a new, random emoji combination, or select from existing emojis.

For example, I wanted to create a cowboy clown emoji. To do that, I took these steps:

  • Clicked on “Clear All” button
  • Selected Cowboy emoji
  • Selected Clown emoji

And, then voila! The cowboy clown emoji resulted:

Clown emoji plus a cowboy emoji equals a clown cowboy emoji in Emoji Kitchen.

The “5” die under the first two emojis result in a random emoji. The overlapping boxes under the third emoji signify “copy” and allows you to copy the emoji so you can paste it elsewhere.

With this amazing emoji maker, you will enjoy hours of endless fun mashing up emojis to get the ones you want. You can also use this emoji maker on iOS mobile. Android users can rely on Gboard to get the same effect. You have even more choices on Gboard than you do via the web version of the Emoji Kitchen. Give it a try!

Tool #3: EmojiMix

Ready to combine emojis of all sorts online? Give EmojiMix a spin.

Available through Google Play, you can run the app on any device that uses Android, including Chromebooks. I found it easy to install on my Lenovo Duet Chromebook as an Android app. Then, I selected two emojis to combine to get this cowboy emoji with sunglasses. Ain’t it cool?

Unfortunately, this app isn’t available for iOS, only Android capable devices.

Tool #4: Emoji Mashup by Louan Bengman

This easy to use emoji mashup bot makes emoji mashups a snap.

Pick your first emoji, choose a second emoji, and hit the Mashup button! As you can see, you have a variety of options in this browser-based mashup tool. Give it a try!

Using Emojis in the Classroom

You may be wondering, “Why use emojis?” There are many opportunities to create emojis. Emojis offer a creative outlet for students to use, for good or ill, and they are great for storytelling.

Here are a few reasons how you can use emojis in the classroom:

  • Classroom wall illustrations. Use them to spice up your anchor charts, bulletin boards.
  • Make student faces anonymous. Each student can invest their creativity in an emoji to represent them on a class chart. Use emojis instead of pictures.
  • Social-emotional learning activity. Students use emojis to show their feelings or to chart group project status.

none of the emoji mixes had a plane. I couldn’t make a 9/11 picture.

You know, I wish it was easy to use one of these emoji mashup tools to create unique emoji. You might take a look at the Emoji Supply:

It offers some additional choices (e.g. plane) but I’m not sure if it will meet your needs or treat the subject with the respect required.

Wishing you well,

HatTip again, Miguel! These are helpful resources with specific purposes! I will be sharing your post with graduate students to address the concept of iterative design and specificity of direction-giving for new technology integration. Success for me was found with increasingly specific and descriptive prompts. The process for each emoji rendered was about 4 tries. This brought up a third activity addressing the assumptions made in communication (even AI does not work with assumptions and biases. For example, one of my prompts was “emojji holding tennis racket with Christmas decorations.” The result was a Telly Salvalas-looking dude holding a metal racket with Christmas decorations surrounding him. Four prompts later with increasing specificity on my part resulted in success for me, according to my pre-conceived idea! Interestingly, I also like emoji.is’s third rendering but it was not exactly correct (for me) until prompt #4. **Thank you***for sharing these resources!!!

Dr. Teague, you are too kind. I’m so excited you found that helpful. Did you give Google’s Emoji Kitchen a try?

I have another blog entry pending publication that shares some additional AI tools for art. They are quite impressive (to me, at least, who can’t draw to save his life). I can’t wait for you to see it.
