Best Online Communication Platform I’ve Used!

I’ve been using Seesaw for 5-years - in 3 different schools - and I love it. More importantly, I’ve yet to meet a child or parent/guardian that can’t access or use Seesaw easily. It’s incredibly straight forward to set up a class. The downloadable, whole-class and individual child/parent QR codes make accessing Seesaw very easy and the phone app is really popular. Sending parent/pupil announcements is simple, and uploading and sharing videos, e-links, photos, docs, and presentations is ever so easy. The kids enjoy having their own folders to store and share their work and the parents/guardians love having a window into their child’s school day.

Infuriating app and totally useless

Having used Seesaw since the start of lockdown, I am still frustrated by the fact that nothing is intuitive. I try to use pinch to zoom and draw lines on the content. Once you zoom in, in stead of being able to just use multitouch you have to use the little navigation box at the top. In order to write something, I always need to create a text box and make it fit and it is absolutely useless on a phone as you cannot see a thing and once zoomed in, the only way you can navigate is using the tiny box at the top. You cannot change orientation in order to make things more legible. Teachers complain that scanned documents and picture cannot be read. There seems to be no interest to improve the app as there has not been a single change or update for the last 9 months. Finally, why does it not save drafts? My son has a few times lost all of his work, just because he accidentally clicked on the back key. You don’t even get a message to say “do you really want to delete what you have worked on for an hour?” But it is just gone. I seriously hate this app.

I am a pupil who is using this in the corona home learning, and it is a great and simple app to do your work. But there are a few problems. Firstly, you can’t add a video straight onto a slide, which is annoying so you have to add it as a separate activity. Secondly, you can only have 1000 words in a text box which is sad. Also, the camera isn’t great on it if you want to take a picture or video straight from the seesaw camera. I would recommend using the normal camera app then just uploading it. Lastly, it glitches quite a bit which is annoying. But it is a well made app where you teachers can like and comment on your post and go straight into it to mark it. Simple app and it is where I have been doing all of my work for the last few months. I recommend it aside from the complaints.
Sorry for the long review and I hope you have the time to read it. From, anonymous.
