How I Use It
I have several elementary teachers using Seesaw as a digital portfolio. Students are drawing pictures, taking pictures, annotating, and voice recording their progress through various activities. Students successfully work in small groups or individually on teacher driven tasks and showcase what they have learned. These tasks range from sight word recognition, number sense, journal writing, peer review an so much more. I love that students can now record and annotate/draw at the same time.
My Take
I feel like we have hit the jackpot with this tool. Students love it. Parents love it and teachers are running with it. it is easy to use and share. I love how user friendly it is for students and for teachers who may hesitate with digital tools and integrating technology.
