What is Seesaw?

A digital portfolio that collects students’ digital and physical work in one place. Everything is organized, making assessment and conferences easier!

A space that each student can own. Built-in tools make it easy for students to capture their learning, reflect, and develop new skills.

A parent communication tool that seamlessly shares what’s going on in your classroom and builds a strong school-home community.
