Seesaw is a platform for student engagement. The Seesaw app is described as a student-driven digital portfolio. Seesaw empowers students of any age to create, reflect, collaborate and share. Students “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. It’s simple to get student work in one place and share with families, and nothing is shared without teacher approval. It allows for family members to use the Seesaw app to keep up to date with their child’s learning in real time and provides easy communication between school and home.
The beauty of a digital app like Seesaw is the ease of communicating and sharing students learning experiences with their parents and guardians.
We will be prioritising pieces of evidence to demonstrate learning and achievement through Seesaw, no longer portfolios. This means each student must have evidence of their learning with a reflection These student journal entries will also be used as evidence of student learning within a specific KLA (ie. literacy and numeracy) and support them to discuss learning with their families.
