Seesaw: The Learning Journal

What’s It Like? Seesaw is a digital portfolio that allows kids to save and submit a variety of work — videos, photos, text, and drawings. They can reflect on their work in writing or with a voice recording when they submit it, and teachers can offer feedback as well. Teachers can then approve items to make them accessible to parents. When teachers set up their classes, they can print a handout with a QR code to give to parents explaining how to register and download the parent app.

Price: Free

Grades: K-5

Pros: Teacher dashboard is easy to navigate, with options to view whole-class or individual student work feeds.

Cons: Setting up classes requires some time and effort, especially if setting up multiple classes.

Bottom line: Students can showcase their work in text, pictures, videos, and more.
