Seesaw to share learning
‘Seesaw’ is an online learning tool which allows students to post learning to their teacher and other members of their class. This could include examples of home learning such as written pieces, baking, art work, uploading power point presentations, recordings of children reading aloud and many more. Teachers are able to comment on these and can also set a range of tasks.
