When I first discovered Buncee, I had no idea the impact that this wonderful creation tool and company would have on me as an educator and human being. My first Buncee was created almost 3 years ago, and it was with that Buncee that I could see the power in this tool. I was involved in a book study for The Book of What If by Matt Murrie, and to reflect on one of his prompts, I created a Buncee with my niece, Nancy. She was 4 years old at the time, and I loved getting to create something with her that amplified her voice and encouraged her to get creative. Just looking at the image now, I can clearly hear her voice in it!
Fast forward to now, it is the tool that I RUN to when an idea hits! There are so many ways to use it in the classroom, but also outside of the classroom. I am an instructional coach, and I love to use Buncee to create promotional graphics for professional learning or conferences that I am presenting at. I have also used it to create my very own digital business card and signage that is hanging in or outside my room.
People want to use this creation tool for many reasons, but a big one is because the people behind Buncee truly care about those that use it. Everything they do is because of, and for our students and teachers. That is a characteristic that I value and respect.
There is so much love about Buncee! It is a one-stop shop for students, and the possibilities are truly endless! It is my jam!
