If you have started to use Seesaw and are familiar with the built-in tools, it might be time to start thinking outside the box. Here are a few ideas of how to level up with Seesaw!
- Kristi Stineman, Starry Elementary, Marion Independent, is using Seesaw as the hub of her classroom. She’s done away with sending home classroom newsletters and is now using Smore to create enticing classroom newsletters and linking it into Seesaw. Everything parents need to know in one place.
- Lynn Holverson, All Saints Catholic, Xavier Catholic Schools, is using Seesaw to administer individual spelling tests. She records her voice giving the spelling test and allows students to listen to the test at their own pace, listening as many times as they need. Bonus points: Save the QR code or link to reuse from year-to-year.
- Post the same thing in more than one class! Use the magical ‘three dots’ and click ‘Share’. Choose share to Seesaw (if you don’t see Seesaw as an option, click ‘More’). At the bottom of the menu there will be an option to share to your other class/es.
- Create a classroom library full of book recommendations! Students record a book review in Seesaw, complete with illustrations and voice. Using the magic ‘three dots’, print the QR code (I suggest a screenshot so you can adjust the size) and attach to the book. Students can scan the code and listen to a peer review of a book!
- Seesaw’s built-in tools are great, but using third party apps can help students express their creativity! Using apps like Toontastic, Telegami, Shadow Puppet, ChatterpixKid, and Green Screen by Do Ink can help students reach the stars! Students can pull from the camera roll or add the link to share with classmates.
- Connect the Blog! Get started by connecting the blog with the class across the hall! Looking to get in the global game? Check out these Connected Blogs from around the world!
