New App “Seesaw” Is A “Learning Journal” For Students



I’ve previously posted several times about how much I love the Shadow Puppet app — there isn’t anything out there that’s an easier tool for creating a quick audio-narrated slideshow. It’s perfect for English Language Learners.

Today, the company behind Shadow Puppet has just released another new and free educational app that looks like it could be very useful. It’s called Seesaw, and basically lets students easily create digital portfolios that can be shared with teachers and parents. It’s free for teachers and students, and has a free and paid version for parents.

I’ve embedded a video about it below. If all your students are using tablets or smartphones in your class, it seems to me that this could be an exceptionally helpful app.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress.

  1. Larry,

    Is See Saw journal being used with secondary students? If so, where can I find a demo video that seems appropriate for this age group? If not, can you suggest a digital portfolio for secondary students
