Seesaw

Description: 

Seesaw is a digital portfolio for students and a place to share content for teachers. It is an app/site that allows teachers to easily distribute and collect content and provides parents access to their own student’s work.

What We Like: 
  • Free (or upgraded teacher version)
  • Gives voice to all students through photo, video, drawing, camera roll, writing, audio capture
  • Creates student portfolio for each student
  • Allows parents to see student work and to comment (voice/written) on their work
  • Easily works with student google accounts (GAFE schools)
Limitations: 
  • Writing feature is not ideal for older students
Classroom Application: 
Have students record a video of themselves telling about a picture they drew
Have students respond to a writing prompt
Use as a way for students to help track their own growth
