Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will explore the features of Seesaw and see how it has been used in a 5th grade classroom (Social Studies, Math, English, etc.).

Teachers will leave with a better understanding of how they can utilize Seesaw in their own classrooms to enhance their students' experience and their own managment.


Participants will have a brief run-through of the Seesaw functions and purposes.

Participants will participate in Seesaw activities after being 'enrolled' in a mock class so that they can experience it from the student perspective.

Participants will then explore the Activity Library for subject and grade-specific activities.

Finally, participants will be guided through a make-your-own activity.
