This webinar aims to provide parents with a comprehensive understanding of Seesaw, an online learning platform that many schools use to share resources and activities with their students. The topics covered in this webinar include:
· Getting Seesaw and adding a child/children using information provided by the school,
· An explanation of Seesaw, how it can be used by teachers and how children respond,
· A demonstration of the Creative Tools used in Seesaw,
· Using the Seesaw Messages feature (if enabled by schools).
Parents will see how Seesaw works from both a Teacher’s viewpoint and a student’s viewpoint, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions during the webinar.
