main page button


In this webinar, librarian Kristie Obrecht and Seesaw's Emily Voigtlander talk about building digital portfolios using Seesaw. Seesaw empowers students of any age to independently document what they are learning at school. Students capture learning with photos and videos of physical work, or by adding digital creations. Everything is uploaded and kept organized for teachers. Teachers can invite families to Seesaw so parents get an immediate, personalized window into their child's learning. Seesaw is available for iOS, Android and the web.
