How I Use It
I use this tool as a form of evaluation and digital learning tool. My students and teachers are able to complete a diagnostic assessment through Seesaw and receive feedback as soon as they post their answer. With the easy accessibility, I am able to assign specific tasks anytime and with the simple method of scanning a QR code. The effectiveness of this tool are the options for my students and teachers to submit their assignments, either by notes, drawings, photos, or video. I have yet to see a flaw on this tool.
My Take
Seesaw is an effective tool for all students. Teachers are able to differentiate instruction and facilitate throughout the task. Many students need options in their learning and Seesaw provides these options by the available tools. My students are able to collaborate to complete specific projects and I am able to assign different projects. For example, when working on the topic of digital citizenship, my students are able to use SeeSaw to create a video to create a Public Announcement. They are able to share with other peers or teachers and receive feedback instantly. SeeSaw promotes students' creativeness and engages them to think critically on their projects. SeeSaw allows students to build a digital portfolio that can follow them throughout their school years and add to their portfolio to enhance their learning. I believe SeeSaw can only get better and provide options for all teachers.
