Good app, request a couple features.

I really like this program for what it’s created for, but I wish seesaw would allow for a calender, so future class events could be viewed in one spot. Maybe because of covid and the need for homeschooling and trying to organize everything I really feel this is needed now. Zoom meetings, other events, would just be nice to go to one place to find this information, rather than looking through the messages sections for an update or uploaded pdf, or emails, or google docs.

Not bad, could be better

I have taught second grade for many years. For the past several years, I have used Class Dojo to keep families informed about what their children are doing in school and send messages back and forth. I switched to SeeSaw this year because Class Dojo won’t he student data privacy pledge. I wish SeeSaw had a few features I am used to, such as the ability to schedule messages for delivery at a later time. Also, posting pictures and videos of my learners in action takes SO many steps on SeeSaw! Notifications don’t always appear in a timely manner either, so sometimes I miss messages from parents until after school. I am committed to using it through the end of this school year, and I hope that the parts I am learning to use (like students uploading their work) will be better than what I have experienced so far.

Ok but could be better

Great have a love it by the way except the fact is every time someone post something or they do understand it just comes up and I do you want me and it leaves like a little mark so you have to click on it and get rid of it but I also don’t like when you have a real app because they usually use it what happens is that when you leave it for like five minutes and you come back on to arm the page or doing it just goes away everything you’ve been working on for the past few hours or minutes there 30 minutes just goes away to start all over so I wish I could do something about that.
