This week I explored Seesaw, because I had heard about it, but was curious about the features and benefits it had! I thought It would be a great resource in my future classroom if I liked the way it was designed. I explored it and loved it! It is very easy to use for teachers, and also would be manageable for all ages of children. This platform could be used in many ways in the classroom for things such as assessment, portfolios, or daily lessons! I also love the fact a student work can all be document in one location, which makes it easy to see progress and evaluate. I am so glad I explored it now, so I know what can be done with this platform! I know for sure it will be useful in my future!
I used it to document my Learning project this week! I can see myself using Seesaw for many educational purposes in my future classroom. I think this is a fantastic platform that all teachers should check out!
Then I was really amazed! A bunch of activities came up that looked very child friendly and engaging. I started clicking on them to see what would happen. Once I clicked on one it gave me an option to “like it” to save and assign to students later or to “assign” right away. There are subject categories and grade categories that make it easier to search for activities.
I clicked on art to see if there was anything I could use to document my learning project! I found a couple that could have worked and assigned the to the “Sample Student” to how they worked! They then went into the folder and I could click on them as the student to complete! I was going to paint something that went alone with each caption, but I made something better!
This platform could be a modification or augmentation of the SAMR model depending on how teachers use this platform in their classrooms. You could make anything for any subject area on Seesaw! I can see myself using Seesaw for many educational purposes in my future classroom. I think this is a fantastic platform that all teachers should check out!
