How I Use It
I am working with teachers on creating E-Portfolios grades K-12. Seesaw addressed the needs for grades K-5, though I felt that grades 6-8 would benefit from this platform as well.
My Take
It is simple to create a profile once you get started, then students do not need to log in with emails. There is a class code to bring them in to the class with ease! The one thing I found a little confusing was when adding media to the feed it didn't go automatically into a students folder, they needed to select their name. It was a little confusing, but if you get into a routine with students it should become second nature. All in all very user friendly and purposeful!
