I teach 1st grade, and I love the way that Seesaw allows my students and me to share what is happening in our classroom. My students are able to record their voices, take pictures of their work, and share their thinking with me and with their families via Seesaw. It is also a really fast way for me to communicate with parents. I use Seesaw to send out my weekly class newsletter and to send out last minute announcements, as well. Great way for teachers, parents, and students to stay connected! Also, it is a great place for teachers to share things with each other. I use so many assignments from the community of teachers on Seesaw to advance the thinking and learning in my classroom. The only thing I wish were different about Seesaw is I wish I were able to assign things just to certain students instead of to the whole class. It would help me differentiate my assignments better. Maybe there’s a way to do that and I just haven’t figured it out yet... 🤷‍♀️ Not sure. But overall, Seesaw has been such a neat tool and resource for my classroom!

In my previous review, I had written that while Seesaw had many amazing features, it was missing a feature that was important to home-school communication: the ability for parents to send pictures through private messaging. Now, the latest update gives that ability and more! Not only can parents/teachers send pictures through private messaging, but also videos, pdf files, and others! Now, my one remaining wish for Seesaw is to have something to the School Story feature similar to Class Dojo. This feature will help schools share school-wide activities/announcements to families. Seesaw is amazing!

I love everything about See Saw as a teacher, however they have made a change in that when I try and share a picture from my phone with my student’s parent (via the app), it no longer allows me to add a simple caption below the photo. This is important as I need to be able to give a brief explanation to the parent as to what is occurring. Rather, when I select the photo(s) from my phone’s camera roll to share, the app only lets me select the student’s name/family to share with, but then immediately posts the picture before I am given a chance to add a caption. This never used to happen last school year. Please, developers, make the fix to change it back to allow adding captions from my phone app. Thank you!

I looooooooove using seesaw in my first grade classroom. I use this app as a communication tool between myself and the students families. The kids and I love making videos of our learning to send home to families and I take pictures a couple times a week to show families what we are doing in the classroom. I also love how I can send reminder messages to the entire classroom , just the families, or individual families when I need to. It is so easy for parents to use and they are always begging for more. I can not imagine not having seesaw in my classroom and love how easy it has made the school home connection.

I don’t know who thought it would be a good idea to make students have to sign in and out of their “student account” every time they log in (instead of when they are ready to post) because it is the most INCONVENIENT thing ever. When I have multiple students doing an activity they need to go back and forth to the QR poster, sign out and sign in just to be able to post. We were able to hand off the iPad before. Horrible. Also with the update, you are not able to go back and add drawing to your post once you have recorded. An example of this would be that we do fluency passages. The students record themselves reading, listen to their recording and rate how they read. Now after your record you can’t do anything else besides submit it. Love seesaw. Hate this update. Please fix these things ASAP for teachers sanity.
