#3 of the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017 According to Education Experts –
Tutora posted the 82 Hottest EdTech Tools of 2017. I have decided to post re each, and we start with #3 on the list, Buncee :
3. Buncee – Create, Present and Share Engaging Multimedia Lessons
As nominated by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos of Tech Trends for Teachers, Nicholas Clayton, and Shelly Terrell of 30 Goals Challenge for Teachers.
The 4 C’s are essential, and perhaps teachers can have students create, communicate, collaborate and engage in critical thinking with assistance from Buncee.
As noted by reviewers:
“Buncee is a creation and presentation tool which supports educators as they foster the 4 Cs of learning in students: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Some of Buncee’s many features include over 10k student friendly graphics designed by their team to help make learning fun, the ability to record audio and video directly into a Buncee, integration with YouTube and Pixabay images and much more.
Students are able to engage and immerse themselves in what they are learning, be more engaged with the material, and therefore improve their comprehension. Buncee can be used to develop future-ready skills in students of all abilities. Students from as young as six and seven years old are using Buncee to create multimedia presentations which demonstrate learning acquisition, critical thinking and creativity, while also communicating stories.
Teachers integrate Buncee as a tool for individualized, differentiated instruction, language learning and special education, as well as lessons and projects for any subject. It is used as a classroom presentation tool for reviewing and introducing content aligned with curriculum standards. Additionally, Buncee is integrated into modes of expressed student learning including alternative book reports, research projects, digital storytelling, project-based learning, passion projects, and genius hour. With Buncee’s easy to use creation canvas making learning fun is just a drag and drop away.
Our experts recommended using Buncee for outside-the-box lessons, such as creating digital posters, micro-movies or simple games as a class activity.”
“A powerful, yet easy-to-use creative platform that empowers students” – Nikolaos Chatzopoulos
“Buncee hits all 4 C’s by allowing students the opportunity to take a blank canvas and create something amazing. The company has awesome customer support, a content rich blog, and a gallery of ideas. As one of my student’s said ‘it’s the best app we have used all year!’ ” – Laurie Guyon
