Buncee...The Perfect Tool For Supporting, Modeling and Teaching Digital Citizenship

According to Common Sense Media,

Being a good digital citizen is more than knowing your way around the web. It's about connecting and collaborating in ways you didn't even know were possible.

When you teach digital citizenship to your students, you help create a positive school culture that supports safe and responsible technology use.
As librarians and teachers, we need to cover these topics outlined by Common Sense Media to prepare our students.  Using digital tools, apps, and other resources are powerful and meaningful ways to support, model and teach digital citizenship.

Buncee is the perfect choice for supporting, modeling and teaching digital citizenship for all ages.

Here are 10 ways Buncee will shape and support your digital citizens too!

1. Students build and manage their digital identity within Buncee by showcasing their knowledge and creativity respectfully and responsibly within the interconnected digital world.

2. Within Buncee Boards, students also have the opportunity to build their skills as positive digital citizens through commenting and reaction emoticons.

3. Buncee gives students a platform to be successful as learners, storytellers and citizens in the digital age. This amazing digital tool gives our students a voice as they create and share their thoughts, knowledge and passions using the creative elements included within Buncee.

4. Buncee provides a digital space where collaboration between students is possible in a creative and meaningful way.  By using the Stitching feature within Buncee, teachers are able to bring Buncee’s from multiple students together to create a collaborative story which everyone can read, celebrate and share.  

5. Students are able to share Buncee’s they create with others not only within their class and school community, but with others around the world.  This will give them a chance to model and practice their skills, while being empowered by the global voice and impact they have on the world.

6. Buncee Boards provide our students a place to collaborate with others by seeing what classmates have created.  Being in this collaborative space Buncee provides, students can practice their digital citizenship skills by being respectful, safe and true to themselves.

7. By using digital assets such as images, sound, video and other elements, students are able to practice and become more aware of creative credit and copyright.  With lots of elements included within the platform, Buncee gives all students the guidance, practice and support they need to be successful.

8. Students can practice giving positive, constructive and kind feedback as a digital citizen to classmates within Buncee Boards.

9. Students use Buncee to enrich their learning and expand perspectives while connecting with others locally and around the world. The Buncee Buddies program is an amazing way for students to collaborate and connect globally using Buncee and Skype in the Classroom to enrich their learning experiences and communication skills as global collaborators.

10. Ultimately, Buncee provides students a place and community to build a positive digital footprint that can follow them throughout their education and life.  It can and will make a difference in the lives of your students too!
