I’m very excited about the new learning journal app Seesaw which can help teachers and parents connect with students and keep track of their school work. Seesaw is a simple way for students as young as 5 to independently document what they are learning at school. It empowers students to take more ownership of their learning.
Seesaw gives parents a personalized, up-to-date window of what their child is doing and learning at school. It has a visual format that parents can easily follow and crosses language barriers too. Seesaw makes it easy to collect digital & physical work in one place that’s organized by student and accessible from everywhere. The kid-friendly Seesaw camera makes it simple to snap a picture of physical work like a poster, drawing, or 3D model. Seesaw integrates with over 20 other popular content creation apps for the classroom so all student multimedia gets seamlessly collected and stored. The student pictured in this post is responding to a piece of work she created and recording her voice about what she learned.
There are over 30 Common Core aligned activity ideas on their Teacher Resource Center so its easy to put Seesaw into practice in your class today.
