Digital Learning Journals

Seesaw

Seesaw is a student-driven digital portfolio that empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school. Students can use photos, videos, drawings, text notes, and links to show what they know. When students add to their Seesaw journal, content is uploaded, organized by student, and immediately accessible to teachers from any device. Teachers can browse work from the entire class or for a single student.

These journals will encourage reflection and provide an authentic audience. Seesaw helps capture the learning process -not just the end result. Students can use Seesaw’s built-in audio recording and drawing tools to reflect on what they’ve learned or explain how they got their answer. Another great benefit Seesaw offers is sign-in options that work for ALL AGES. Younger learners or classrooms with shared devices can sign in with a QR code. Older students can sign in with their existing Google Account. I think that this could definitely be an amazing tool for your classroom....and it's free!

Strengthen Connections Between School and Home ∙

Seesaw allows you to Include families in the learning process by inviting them to view updates to their child’s Seesaw journal. Teachers approve all new additions and comments before anything is shared with parents. Anytime you can allow parents the opportunity to take a peek into their child's school day...they love it! Seesaw is the perfect window for them to see the amazing things their children are learning in the classroom.

Did I mention there is a Google Chrome App for this in the Chrome Web Store?

Remember...this allows you to pin it to the shelf (bottom bar on the Chromebook) so it is easily accessible to your students.
