Do you use Seesaw in your classroom or district? I attended a literacy conference workshop this past summer and went to one of the break out sessions on using the program with elementary students. I loved it and decided to pilot it in my classroom this school year. It is easy to use, creates a digital portfolio that can follow students through school from year to year, messages parents when new work is posted for their students, and my students love using the program.
After attending some webinars, I was granted Ambassador status which allows me to use the Seesaw Plus version at no cost. Seesaw supports student empowerment and independence and provides an authentic audience. Recently as a class, we learned to app smash, and combined Chatterpix with Seesaw and wow, what a huge motivator to get my student’s to write! Seesaw and Google Drive work together beautifully where before students were taking a picture of their work, now they can just post it from Google Drive while logged into Seesaw. We have used the program on our iPad mini devices, and from the Chromebooks, both methods work beautifully. Check it out here to find out more. This is not a promoted post; this is me sharing my experience with Seesaw in my second-grade classroom.
