digital portfolios For any classroom
Seesaw empowers students to independently document what they are learning at school.
Students can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. You can also import directly from most popular apps, like Google apps.
Seesaw makes it easy for students and teachers to review progress over time and demonstrate growth.
When students add to their Seesaw journal, content is uploaded, organized by student, and immediately accessible to teachers from any device.
Browse work from the entire class, or for a single student. Optionally, use folders to organize work by subject area or project.
Seesaw portfolios are a great asset at parent teacher conferences or even student-led conferences!
With support for QR code sign in for younger learners and email or Google account sign in for older students, Seesaw works in any K-12 classroom.
Strengthen connections between school and home
Include families in the learning process by inviting them to view updates to their child’s Seesaw journal.
Seesaw’s immediate, visual updates actually get seen by busy parents and give families an opportunity to provide encouragement. Plus, built-in translation tools help Seesaw posts cross language barriers.
Quickly send an announcement to all families or students in your class, or privately message individual parents right within Seesaw.
Teachers approve all new additions and comments before anything is shared with parents and families.
Develop 21st Century skills
Seesaw helps capture the learning process, not just the end result. Students can use Seesaw's built-in audio recording, drawing and caption tools to reflect on what they've learned or explain how they got their answer.
On iOS and Android devices, our recordable whiteboard allows students to create videos that combines drawing and audio recording to explain their thinking as they work.
Seesaw gives students an authentic audience of their peers, parents and even other classrooms around the globe, encouraging better work and real feedback.
Teachers control who can view what student content, and can customize which feedback options are available in their class.
Seesaw Blogs are a simple way to share a selection of work from students’ Seesaw portfolios on a public class blog, giving students a broader, global audience for their learning.
Teachers can also connect directly to other classrooms through Seesaw Connected Blogs, providing students an opportunity to collaborate with other classrooms around the world and develop digital citizenship skills in a safe, teacher-moderated environment.
Assessment with Seesaw Plus
Teachers using Seesaw for formative assessments can now tag their student’s posts with their own set of skills or standards. Optionally, assign a simple 1-4 star rating to student work to get a real-time understanding of how students are progressing towards key curriculum objectives.
Skills and ratings are only visible to teachers, and are fully customizable to the learning goals your class is working towards. Learn more!
Teachers can take notes that are visible only to teachers, and add work into a teacher-only private folder. Students and parents cannot view work in the teacher private folder or access teacher private notes.
Seesaw supports all the platforms you use and seamlessly works between them, making Seesaw great for BYOD environments.
An essential part of our mission is providing a service that keeps students safe, and puts teachers and parents in control of how student information is shared. Read more about our commitment to your privacy and security.
