“Show What They Know”

Adobe Spark

Adobe Spark (Formerly Adobe Voice and Adobe Post) is a must use cross platform tool.  There is an iOS app, as well as can be accessed from a browser on a laptop.  Users can create graphics, stories and animated videos for FREE and with ease.  My favorite usage by students is the videos as they are simple to create with images and the students’ voice.  There is not a lot of complicated settings and users can easily craft a wonderful project with minimal teacher instruction.   It can be used with any age group and in any subject area.  It is my go to app for many “show what you know” projects.

Buncee

Buncee came to my attention this spring as a great new creation tool.  They even came to my school to do a hands on demo, which impressed me even more with this company.  There is a free and a premium level with also a school/district level of usage.  Buncee is device agnostic and has an ease of use that would make it easy for any student or teacher to pick up and get started.  Users begin with a blank canvas and then just through drag and drop, incorporate many forms of media to create content, projects, or culminating reviews. A definite must check out tool.
