A teaching veteran reveals two tech secrets that keep her organized in the classroom.


SeeSaw

Are you looking for student-driven, parent-teacher communication? Maybe you’re struggling to find a way to document hands-on learning. If so, SeeSaw is the app for you! The multimedia digital journal allows students to import work, via iOS or Android, through the use of a class QR code. Teachers register their class, assign an animal icon for each student, inform parents of the tool and set class parameters. Evidence of learning can be added in a variety of ways. Students may upload a photo, video, do a drawing or import a photo from the camera roll. They may annotate their entry using a voice recorder, drawing, or type nvarchar(max). All items are sent to the teacher, who then approves, shares, tags or releases them. Parents will love the added feature of accessing student accounts on any iOS or Android device. Additionally, they may customize their settings to receive alerts.

Price: Free! Site licenses are also available.
