Seesaw – A Student Driven Portfolio Tool

From time to time we like to highlight interesting opportunities outside the ebook world. We are going to do that today by looking at Seesaw.

For Students: Seesaw empowers students to independently document their learning and provides an authentic audience for their work—their peers, parents, or the world. With built-in content creation tools, like photos, videos, drawings, voice recordings, text notes, PDFs, links and integrations with 1000s of other apps, students can demonstrate their learning in the way that works best for them.

Through the Seesaw parent app and website, parents can view their child’s work, leave comments, and really understand how their child is progressing. Seesaw also provides automatic notifications for parents about new work for their child – so they can stay in the loop wherever they are!
