DLC Quick Tip - Seesaw Update

Did you notice that Seesaw now offers students the option to “Save Draft”? This new feature allows students to work on a post or multipage activity over the course of several days before final approval is made and shared with families.


While in the “Draft” stage, only the student and teacher can see the work, and there can be comments and discussions on the work in progress.


Click here for a 1-page document showing how to use "Save Draft" feature.


Reach out to your DLC to get more details on this fantastic update!


Love partnering with you all! Keep the ideas and conversation coming.
