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) will be moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. After 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 will be sent to registered users of the LOR. 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).

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
