Activating the Power of Seesaw with Blended Learning Experiences
Learn to use Seesaw as a repository for teacher-created screencasts, video instructions, tutorials, fluency assessments, and student activities. Instead of archiving or deleting a class, teachers can continue to add to a “Teacher Resources” class and use it year after year. Additionally, Seesaw allows for student voice and choice and empowers (even K-3) students to become more independent and self directed. Seesaw Learning Portfolio is web based and can be used on any device (Seesaw Learning Journal app). The simplistic nature of Seesaw makes it perfect for the most novice to advanced technology using educator.
