Bounce

Description: 

Bounce is a literacy tool that enables teachers/students to screenshot an entire webpage and annotate it with selection boxes with a comment feature to add context.

What We Like: 
  • Accountless access for students with the ability to add a name for student recognition
  • Can share each "bounce" via link
  • Simple, focused annotation tool set
  • Can be used to model and teach digital literacy skills
Limitations: 
  • Limited annotation tool set
  • No accounts means no saving of partially completed work
  • Anonymity could enable malicious behavior if used collaboratively
  • Cannot reply to comments.
  • Slightly outdated aesthetic
Classroom Application: 
Annotation of web-based text
Identification of the parts of a web page
Collaborative annotation
Teacher modeling of annotation skills
