Seesaw is an easy-to-use, free digital portfolio tool for students that may just ROCK. YOUR. CLASSROOM.
Seesaw works on all devices, including iPads, Androids, Chromebooks and on computers with Chrome or Firefox, which makes this tool perfect for BYOD districts (like ours!) Students can show what they know by using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. They can create and submit images, drawings, and videos that record their voices while drawing simultaneously all within the app or they can submit work created in other creation tools on their device. It doesn’t stop there. Students have the ability to “like” or add comments on their classmates’ work as well.
Don’t worry if you only have one or two devices (including student computers!) in your classroom. Students can create/submit work into their own folders from any device – even a shared device!
Seesaw Blogs are the newest feature and quite honestly, student blogging has NEVER BEEN EASIER. This is such a simple way to share a selection of work from students’ Seesaw portfolios on a public class blog, giving students a broader, global audience for learning.
The following video(s) walk you through every single step needed to use Seesaw – from setting up your first class to the student’s experience as well as the teacher’s experience to blogging!
HINT: click the playlist icon in the upper left corner to move between the different videos. Or just watch them all (like I did!)
