"New, Exciting, Wonderful Stuff"
Week of May 16, 2016
New info and resources courtesy of your 7B librarian
1. BUNCEE - a fun alternative to Google Slides
Here's what Richard Byrne has to say about Buncee:
"Compared to Google Slides Buncee has more video and audio options. While you can draw on Google Slides that requires the use of Google Drawings whereas on Buncee slides students just choose the pencil icon and start drawing."
2. CITATION UPDATES - 2 new changes to be aware of!
- The 8th edition of the MLA handbook has just been published, along with a new MLA Style Center website. The good news is that all citation rules have been simplified and streamlined! I'll have details soon, but it should make things much easier for our students - yay!
- All Chappaqua schools are moving from EasyBib to NoodleTools next year because of changes in the EasyBib subscription policies. Yes, there will be a learning curve as we transition, but I personally think NoodleTools is a better product anyway :-)
I'll be preparing support materials for students and teachers.
