Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

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  • Slightly outdated aesthetic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
