Easily Capture Learning in Any Form

Seesaw empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school. With support for QR code login for younger learners, Seesaw works in any K-12 classroom

You can create folders and invite other teachers to share student accounts.

Example 1: I can create an Art folder. Students can take pictures or a video of their artwork. Back in the classroom, students can write a reflection on their artwork and comment on others artwork.

Example 2: Use SeeSaw for running records. Record students and see how their reading improves over time. These folders can be shared with Title 1, Reading Recovery, Intervention, or Special Ed teachers.

Example 3: Another teacher and I are doing a Journalism club. We both have access to the folders. We can see and comment on the pieces students are creating. For students, they can write, take pictures, and create videos for Journalism which allows those students who may not be proficient writers to succeed.


Students can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. You can also import directly from most popular apps.

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.

Seesaw gives students an authentic audience of their peers and parents, encouraging better work and real feedback. Teachers can control who can see what, and what feedback options are available.

How do I "push" an item out to my students?

If you want to upload an item into Seesaw for all of your students to make their own edits on top of, here’s how:

First, make sure that you have Student Editing ON for your class. Tap Your Profile Icon > Manage Class > Enable Student Editing > ON.

How to post an assignment for students:

  1. Add the item into Seesaw from your teacher account. Works with images, drawings or notes.
  2. Tag it with Everyone.
  3. Have students tap the [...] button below the item and choose “Copy & Edit”. This will duplicate the item and students can make their own annotations on top of it.
  4. When they're finished, students should submit the item like normal. It will show up as a new item in your teacher approval queue.

**Seesaw does not yet support drawing on top of a PDF.
