Buncee® LLC’s iPad app Buncee for EDU, a content creation and digital storytelling app, was recognized by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) as one of the 2015 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning at the 2015 American Library Association Annual Conference on June 27, 2015. The list of 25 apps is a respected technology resource for school librarians and educators, each app having been selected for its exemplification of the AASL’s learning standards and for its ability to aid in career and college readiness.
“We are honored that such an impressive organization chose Buncee for EDU as one of the year’s best apps for teaching and learning,” said Marie Arturi, Founder and CEO of Buncee LLC. She added, “While we have seen Buncee for EDU successfully used as a tool for content creation and digital storytelling across the country, knowing that we met the AASL’s Standards for the 21st - Century Learning is truly validating.”
The 2015 Best Apps for Teaching and Learning list is based on feedback and nominations from AASL members, educators, developers, and students. The list is not only a resource for school librarians; it is also beneficial to parents and teachers in search of the best educational apps for their children and classrooms.
