Seesaw is an online remote learning and classroom communication platform which is useful to create and share information for students, teachers and families as it provides a safe online learning environment.
Seesaw provides students with a space to document their learning, be creative and learn how to use technology. Seesaw allows students to engage with course content material by recording and share learning activities that occur in the classroom and submitting content to the platform to build individual digital portfolios which can span across a student’s entire school career and helps students learn how to utilise technology and reflect on their achievements. Each student gets their own journal/portfolio to will add their activity achievements such as photos, videos, drawings, or notes of student work samples.
Seesaw is a user-friendly digital platform for teachers to gain insights on student learning. Through Seesaw, teachers can assign work to individual students, engage with students, and provide feedback, among other classroom activities such as creating worksheets and setting extension or differentiated activities. It serves as an excellent tool to create worksheets or record diagnostic, formative and summative assessments. In doing so teachers are better equipped to understand the strengths and areas for improvement for each student in real-time and then proceed to capitalise on Seesaw’s multimodal tools to differentiate instruction and meet the diverse needs of all your students.
