Keeping up

As we live two hours away from our granddaughter and only see her every three weeks; it is so lovely to see some of the activities she does at school. It enables us to have a conversation round the pictures and give her the opportunity to tell us what she was doing. We enjoy being involved in her learning experiences.

Layout confusing, privacy concerns, puts me off engaging

From a user experience point of view it can be very difficult to distinguish between home, messages, and notifications layout. Particularly troublesome when attempting to messages teacher privately. Many parents in our class have made the mistake of posting messages on the whole class notification board thinking they were sending a private message to the teacher. It’s embarrassing. It’s also unclear as to whether photos of my child and their work posted by the teacher are visible to everyone in class or just me and the teacher, so I tend not to engage with the posts. The school used Class Dojo previously which I found much more intuitive to engage with. Disappointed with parent experience using Seesaw by comparison.

Great app, needs a landscape view.

This is a great app and I look forward to seeing individual child and class activities it’s a great way to showcase what the kids are doing and interact with them.

My big gripe is that you can’t view pdf newsletters and other files in landscape format. Most parents I know look at Seesaw on a phone but it’s difficult to read documents without zooming and so it’s hard to keep track of where you are on a page.

Improve legibility by allow users to turn their phone on its side. It just doesn’t function now. Please consider this a feature request.
