What is Seesaw?
Seesaw is a platform for pupil engagement that inspires pupils of all ages to do their best.
Pupils use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio.
Teachers find or create activities to share with pupils .
Families only see their child's work and leave comments and encouragement.
What can families see?
Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see pupil work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with 'Everyone'. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child's journal posts.
Family members cannot access any other pupil’s content.
For teachers, Seesaw is primarily used a way to communicate with families and keep them in the loop on the learning their child is doing at school. Pupils add posts to Seesaw that they are proud of in a self directed way, as well as work their teacher has assigned. Teachers report that students are motivated to do better work when they know their families will provide immediate feedback during the day or ask them about it that evening.
