When you have shared iPads, Seesaw is a fantastic way to get the work off the iPads and into the online classroom. Seesaw embodies simple authentic assessment. Today Suzy Lolley @suzylolley teaches us the ins and outs of Seesaw.
Here’s the great thing — Seesaw is SIMPLE! Kindergarteners are using it! If you’re using iPads, your whole elementary school can have their own personal portfolios in a safe, private way. Only each child’s parent can see their own. This is a tool you’ll want to notice if you’re using iPads. Suzy masterfully takes us on a quick tour.
Happy Tech Tool Tuesday!
