Using Digital Stickers in Seesaw is a fun way to interact with student work during distance learning. I have used Seesaw in my classroom for several years and love the simplicity and the visual engagement of the platform. Digital Stickers would work with many other platforms as well, but today I wanted to show you how to insert them into student work within Seesaw.
I create some Digital Stickers to use with my students. They were created with bright and bold colors to really make them stand out. First, you need an easy way to access the stickers. Keeping them in a file on your computer, in a handy place works best. Personally, I use Dropbox so that my files are accessible on computers at home and school.
To insert the stickers into a Seesaw activity first open the program. Then, go into an activity that a student has submitted. Next, click the three dots on the lower right and click “edit item”. At this point, you are inside the submitted student assignment. There is a menu on the left-hand side, click the camera on that menu. The menu will expand, and click “upload”.
Click on the file where your digital stickers are and double click on the sticker you want to use. Resize if necessary, and click the green checkmark to save. Note: Don’t archive activities until you have added stickers or you won’t be able to save them.
If you accidentally archive an activity just go to activities, “Archived”, find the activity, and click on it. Then on the three dots in the lower right and click “Unarchive activity”. Then you will be able to edit items and save stickers to student work.
I have made a quick video to walk you through these steps below.
You can also add stickers to Student Choice Boards. You can read about how I use those in class here. I hope this helps you and let me know if you have any questions!
