Seesaw

Estimated Time: 1 Hour  |  Created By: Ashley Johnson

A student’s learning can be captured and chronicled in SeeSaw through photo and video. Because this digital portfolio system allows parents to connect with their student, learning is no longer constrained to the four walls of the classroom. Because students are engaged with an authentic audience (parents, teachers, peers) through Seesaw, learning will accelerate and home and school connections will be strengthened.

Objective: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able create a SeeSaw account, enroll students and parents in a class. Students will be able to submit work in SeeSaw for the teacher to view, as well as parents. Participants will be able to add photos, video, drawings, recordings, and notes, as well as work from other iPad applications.
