Creating Digital Portfolios

Hey everyone! I am so excited to share this app with you and show you how to create digital student portfolios! 
Seesaw allows students to independently create and capture their learning all in one place! The app allows you to collect and digitalize your students' physical work. Once you create a class, multiple students can be added making this program accessible and functional for classrooms with limited devices. This tool encourages parent involvement by allowing parents to view their students learning and progress from anywhere, at anytime! 

First, download the app. Setup is extremely easy and all features are very intuitive making Seesaw user-friendly for students as young as kindergarten. 












Once an account is created, students can access the account by scanning the QR code on additional devices...NO passwords needed.




Students can create and share photos, videos, drawing and notes. All items are digitally stored under each student's individual file. 



Parents can access the files on any device. This feature encourages parent involvement in their child's learning and helps facilitate communication at home about their day at school. For my speech students, I plan to upload pictures for a craft or activity sheet we completed during the therapy session so that parents can view it at home. My hope is that this will help facilitate carry-over of strategies and skills that I have taught them at school.


How do you currently manage student portfolios? Try Seesaw and let me know what you think!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
