Discover Seesaw for Your Classroom!

Staying current with teaching techniques is a necessity as an educator.
Take a moment to discover Seesaw for your classroom!

Seesaw is a student-driven digital portfolio that empowers students of all ages to independently document what they are learning at school. They can then share it with their teachers, parents, classmates, and even the world.

For Students
Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning and provides an audience for their work—their peers, parents, or the world. 

For Families
Seesaw gives families an immediate and personalized window into their child’s school day, helping to answer: "What did you do at school today?"


For Teachers
Seesaw saves you time on organization and parent communication, makes formative assessment easy, and provides a safe place to teach 21st Century skills.

Three ways to use Seesaw

Seesaw for Feedback and Reflection
Some teachers use Seesaw primarily as a place for students to share their work, and specifically encourage individual reflection and peer feedback. Seesaw becomes a place not only where student work can be stored, but where teachers and peers can provide encouragement, constructive criticism, and suggestions for improvement. An authentic audience of peers can encourage students to do their best work. Teachers have the opportunity to review any comments before they are posted, to ensure that feedback is constructive and appropriate.

Seesaw for Assignments & Assessment
Some teachers choose to use Seesaw in a more private way, where they can do student assessments, collect work, and give direct private feedback to students. You can even send assignments to students for them to complete and turn in. This primarily makes Seesaw a place where students and teachers can interact around their work.

Seesaw for Parent Engagement
For other teachers, Seesaw is primarily used as a way to communicate with parents and keep them in the loop on their child's learning progress at school. Students add items to Seesaw they are proud of in a self directed way, as well as work their teacher has assigned. Teachers report that students are motivated to do better work, when they know their parents will provide immediate feedback during the day or ask them about it that evening.

These are just a few of the typical ways we've seen teachers use Seesaw, but you can configure Seesaw in a way that works best for you.
