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.
It’s one of two things.....either the school our kids go to have no idea how to use the app effectively, or it’s the worst app of all time. I have notifications turned off but I get notifications constantly. We have two kids, so every time a school note goes out I get everything twice. There is no rhyme or reason to things that get posted. Basically there are so many notes that it makes it tedious to even want to navigate. The only thing I like it for, is if a teacher or my kids post a photo or video of something cool they did in class. I’ve told our kids that they are responsible for their learning and that we won’t use the app. No different than the way it was before technology. If it’s something important we parents need to know.....just send us an email or send a note home with the kids.
So that’s what they do all day! 😉
Seesaw Gives me a “peek” into my 2nd grader’s school day. From photos of her journaling assignments to videos of her presentations, it’s a wonderful (and easy) way for me, but also grandparents, uncles, aunts,, etc to be a part of her school day. I am able to “love “ and/or comment on the pictures, there is a zoom option (which makes reading assignments on my phone much easier), and a section where teachers can send out a notification that might be urgent (such as, we are closing early for snow!). I am very pleased with this app so far.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
