We don’t own the content you add to Seesaw
Students and their schools own the work added to Seesaw. If you’d ever like to save your content elsewhere or use a different product, you can download what you’ve added to Seesaw to your computer or mobile device. You can also delete your account at any time and we will permanently delete your account and data within 60 days (unless we are required to keep it under applicable law).
Student work is private to the classroom by default
Teachers control what is shared and with whom. Unless teachers choose to share, no student work is visible outside of the classroom. Teachers can choose to invite family members to see the work their child has added to Seesaw or post some items more publicly (such as to a Seesaw blog).
