- See Saw – Online interactive learning platform – Years P-6 – Presented by Kate Blyde – Primary
- Seesaw is a platform for student engagement. Teachers can empower students to create, reflect, share, and collaborate. 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. This session will include a brief introduction to setting up Seesaw for your class. We will also delve into creating your own Seesaw activities to support student learning. Seesaw activities can be tailored to the needs of students and units of work. Activities can be used to create a digital folio of student work, assessment tasks, and fluency and skills activities for small group rotations. Please bring along an iPad, tablet or laptop to start exploring and creating using this versatile platform.
