Achieving Social and Emotional Learning with Buncee

Social emotional learning (SEL) is a critical component of educating learners today. SEL is defined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as “the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”

SEL can increase a student's long-term wellbeing, and studies have shown that SEL programming can improve a student’s academic performance, behavioral growth, long-term economic success, and life outcomes. Using the Buncee creation platform (, educators have many ways to implement SEL initiatives and lessons easily and creatively, bringing the benefits of SEL to K-12 learners.

Buncee is a multimedia creation tool for educators, students, and administrators. With Buncee, educators can create engaging, multimedia SEL resources and activities from scratch or from a library of SEL templates. Students can complete these activities and express themselves with a variety of media options: emojis designed with SEL in mind, stickers and animations, video, audio, drawing, and more. Buncee's media tools offer students the choice of how they would like to communicate, empowering student ownership over their work.

Buncee’s integration with Microsoft products help make SEL lessons more accessible to learners and more easily available to the community. Immersive Reader can make these SEL resources accessible to language learners, as well as students with reading disabilities, visual impairments, and dyslexia. Integration with Microsoft Teams, Word, and OneNote make the sharing of SEL resources created on Buncee all the easier to access.

Check out the resources and examples below to learn how educators in our community have been using Buncee to support SEL.

While this is still a major reason for our continued success with Buncee, as we witnessed students using the platform, we saw how it facilitated student choice by providing access to many tools in one platform."
