WHAT IS SEESAW?:
For students, Seesaw helps them see their own growth and provides an audience for their work - whether that be peers, parents, or the world at large.
For families, Seesaw gives an immediate, personalized window into their child’s day so they can support learning at home.
For teachers, Seesaw saves time on organization and communication, makes formative assessment easy, and provides a safe place to teach digital citizenship skills.
Easily Capture Student Learning in Any Form
∙ Students can use photos, videos, drawings, text notes, links or PDFs to show what they know and store evidence in their digital portfolio. You can also import from 100s of other apps.
∙ When students add to Seesaw, content is uploaded, organized by student, and accessible from any device.
∙ Teachers can browse work from the entire class or for a single student. Optionally, use folders to organize work by subject area project, or assessment standard.
Sign In Options that Work for All Ages
∙ Young learners or classrooms with shared devices can sign in with a QR code.
∙ Older students can sign in with their email address or Google account.
Encourage Reflection and Provide an Authentic Audience
∙ Seesaw helps capture the learning process not just the end result. Students can use Seesaw’s built-in audio recording and drawing tools to reflect on what they've learned or explain how they got their answer.
∙ Seesaw gives students an authentic audience of their peers and parents, encouraging better work and real feedback. Teachers can control who can see what, and what feedback options are available, such as likes and comments.
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 parents, provide encouragement for students, and cross language barriers.
∙ Teachers approve all new additions and comments before anything is shared with parents.
∙ Translation into 50+ languages of text Note posts, comments, and captions.
Seesaw Blogs -- the easiest way to create a blog for your class!
- Create a public web page for your class and give students a global audience for their work.
- Teachers and students can post a selection of Seesaw items to the class blog in just one tap. No other apps, websites or embed codes needed! All posts are teacher-moderated.

Best app ever for classrooms
This is by far the best app I have ever used with my kindergarten students. They beg to get to put everything in their digital portfolio. It is a great tool for helping parents be a part of their child's education. It is also awesome for formative assessments that will give you truly information about the how and the why a student came to a certain answer.
Great App for Christmas the classroom!
This app has been great at letting parents get a view as to what their child is doing in the classroom without sending a bunch of papers home. This is especially helpful in a science class when we do a lot of hands on because we're about to include videos and students explain what they are doing and learning.
Life Changing App
Seesaw is by far the most important app used in my classroom. We use it for blended learning, sharing with each other, and with our parents and families. Seesaw also allows us to share digital projects easily and securely.
I couldn't teach without it!
