WHAT MELISSA SAYS ABOUT BUNCEE:
“Buncee is so student friendly, that the week after I introduced the tool to one of my classes, a student told me that over the weekend, she created a “Bouncee,” while on the computer at her mother’s office! Although she may not have gotten the name right, she was able to easily use Buncee to create outside of the classroom with only a little bit of instruction.
My students enjoy learning new ways to use Buncee as well as discovering new ways to express themselves! They click to see what happens and then excitedly share their discovery with the class.”
