Seesaw is a digital learning portfolio for students in Primary to create, reflect, collaborate and share their learning with their peers, teachers and families.
At Santa Sophia, developing strong partnerships and communication with our families is central to the work that we do.
In the primary school, every student has access to their own Digital Learning Journal within the Seesaw Parent and Family application. Seesaw allows for real-time access to the classroom learning successes and reporting to families. Students upload photographs and videos of their work samples and voice recordings of their understandings to capture their daily learning experiences. The students quickly become equipped with the 21st century skills required to use the application, which allows them to be empowered and develop independence to share and reflect on their learning.
Through the Seesaw app, parents are able to view what the students are currently learning in the classroom, their successes in their learning and the next steps and learning goals, at home, in real-time. These regular student learning updates through Seesaw encourages families to continue the learning conversations at home. Parents are able to monitor their child’s progress and their next steps in learning. The Seesaw app strengthens our partnership between parents, students and teachers as it provides one of our platforms for communication. Parents are able to send and receive notifications and messages through the application.
The Seesaw application is also a tool for teachers for formative assessment to consistently track learning progress.
