What I’ve always loved most about Buncee is that I can create “one-stop creation experiences” for students when making assignments. In Buncee, students can find the images they need without needing to navigate to a new (distracting) tab to do an external search, they have access to a wide variety of design elements, and students can even insert audio and record video directly within the Buncee platform.
With Buncee 3.0, students will have even more options, including the ability to use their webcam to take and insert a photo. One thing I do in my math classroom is to have students solve a problem on a piece of paper, upload a snapshot of that work to Buncee, and then use the audio recording feature to talk through their solution. The goal of this type of assignment is for students to practice verbalizing their thinking process. Buncee 3.0 will simplify the workflow by eliminating the need for students to take a snapshot of their handwritten work using their phone and upload to their computer to insert into Buncee. With the new Take Photo option, students will simply be able to hold their paper up to their computer’s webcam to take a snapshot. From there, they can record their audio directly in Buncee.
And that's precisely what I love so much about Buncee. It allows me to get creative with the assignments I assign students with the peace of mind that students will not be bogged down in fiddling with the technology. It keeps the focus on the learning and reduces distraction by allowing the creative process to happen entirely in Buncee.
