Seesaw: The Learning Journal app reviews

  • Best Educational App 5/5

    By Teacherof1st
    As a teacher and a parent, this is the best app!!! It allows parents to see what their child is working on AND also has a feature that allows communication between parents & teachers! I highly recommend this app for your classroom!
  • Great for Special Needs Classroom 5/5

    By Groovy Cool
    SeeSaw is fantastic for providing digital documentation of student work. Many of my students don't engage in paper pencil tasks, but in more hands-on activities geared toward their individual goals. SeeSaw allows me to post photos of them working, their successes and their joy of learning. It's a great way to share with parents who rarely know what their child does at school due the lack of "work" being sent home. I love that SeeSaw maintains student privacy by only allowing parents to view items in their child's portfolio. Thank you for such a great tool.
  • A must have for my students 5/5

    By TeachCow
    It’s a very efficient app and essential to my third grade classroom. I would suggest some customization options for the aesthetics of it as far as textures or background photos for the frame, etc
  • No way for parents to send you pictures and videos 1/5

    By Reinaag
    I do like the features of this app except for one important thing for our school: there is no way for parents to send you pictures/videos through the app. It would be great if parents can also show you what their children do at home but they can only send messages through the app and nothing else. I regret having used Seesaw for this year especially with the new updates Class Dojo just came out with.
  • So much functionality! 5/5

    By STARBASE Instructor
    I only wish students could zoom in so that writing over images with the stylus was more practical.
  • Perfect, except for one thing.. 4/5

    By elem131
    I love this app! I use it daily to communicate with the family of a special needs student. It also helps me document what she is doing in real time, allowing me to take pictures of her working within the classroom and during social activities. The students uses the note tool to write to her parents about her day... it's wonderful. My only issue is that parents can not post themselves- I would like be for them to be able post pictures from home so we can use them as talking points for the student.
  • Great app! 4/5

    By Bobby20000
    This app is awesome! It allows parents to see what students are doing in the classroom and make sweet and encouraging comments. I have gotten great feedback from parents and students alike. The only thing I would change is the ability to let teachers add recordings or items to the teacher stream. Not just comments, but adding a new post. That would help round out the parents' picture.
  • Awesome for class 5/5

    By Ktgamer
    I am enjoying this app so much! I am trying it out for my classroom for the first time to share photos and videos with the parents and it is awesome!
  • Awesome app! 5/5

    By JBTeachesTexas

  • Teachers best friend 5/5

    By Firsties are fabulous
    This app is great for students to create their own items. They can also import pictures and videos. It's a great kid portfolio!
  • Oxygen and Water aren't ALL You NEED 5/5

    By Beardease
    for survival! Once you have experienced using Seesaw in a classroom, you'll wonder HOW you've managed to survive without it! Students love it, Parents love it, teachers rave about it! Thank you to the developers for this magnificent tool and it's simplistic, intuitive interface!

  • Awesome App 5/5

    By cldeniserj
    I love the Seesaw App. It is the easiest way to connect to families at home.
  • Great way to communicate 4/5

    By harrypotterfan14
    I'm just using this app to text parents for now. It's super easy & better than email. I wish we could text more than 1 parent at a time though or at least both parents connected to the same child. Hope this comes as you update.
  • New to seesaw 4/5

    By cutiepieeee
    I'm still getting use to how it works on my laptop and phone 🤓

  • Changes teaching forever 5/5

    By Amarantha0313
    What a positive way to track student progress, help them reflect on their own thinking and learning, and monitor their understanding! Love, love, love it!
  • This app is a dream come true! 5/5

    By Grandma/teacher
    I love this app! SeeSaw is the best app for sharing students' work with the families. It is Easy for me and my kindergarten students to use, but it would be fantastic for older students! Thank you!!!! Update: I've been using Seesaw for a few months now I love discovering new ways to use it! The professional development ideas are excellent! Thank you to all at Seesaw!
  • Revolutionary! 5/5

    By Josee7288
    Everyone will be using this in their classrooms!
  • Teacher Idea 4/5

    By Maggielucy1
    Could you please add a component where we could set "quiet hours"? I know Dojo has something similar and it would be nice to have a polite way to remind parents that we are not always working or accessible.
  • Great app 5/5

    By hsilva18
    This will be a great app to use in my classroom next year. I've been using it this summer and love it!
  • I love Seesaw! 5/5

    By IvannaSkoolya
    This app is for teachers and students. There is a separate app for parents and/or families.
  • Parent likes 5/5

    By ReaderMama
    Love this app! Revolutionary! My only wish for change would be that, when i get a notification that someone liked an "Everyone" item, I could tell specifically which parent was active. It comes up as a list in alphabetical order, so it always looks like "Amber" has been liking items, if that makes sense.
  • Best and easiest tool 5/5

    By lynn bcba
    This is an amazing app that this techno-illiterate BCBA has found to connect parents with their kids --throughout their day. Easy instructions and great quality! Thanks SeeSaw!!
  • The greatest game changer 5/5

    By Swimandread
    This app is easy to learn, a snap to use, and a game changer in my school! I would rate it a 10, if I could!
  • Love it! 5/5

    By Gdaffghhfu
    I homeschool, and have found this to be an amazing way to gather our projects,assignments, and adventures together. I especially love the blog feature, and that I can share it with others. Love it!
  • Amazing Resource 1/5

    By laurin_rose
    I LOVE SEESAW!!! Seesaw has been an amazing resource in my 1-1 classroom this year and has allowed me to go paperless. Now that I've used it, I can't imagine not having it. I recommend Seesaw to all educators, whether you are 1-1 or only have one device in your classroom that you use for stations.
  • This is the greatest 5/5

    By Caker12345
    This app is seriously amazing. Parents LOVE getting videos of their children. I love this app and don't know how I lived without it!
  • Kindergarten Students love working and sharing on SeeSaw 5/5

    By hgaecke
    My students love recording, working in, and sharing on Seesaw. We are wrapping up our year together and I can't wait for them to look back to see how much they have learned how to do this year. LOVE this app. My parents have enjoyed giving feedback and seeing what their child is learning too.
  • Parents love it! 5/5

    By Frustrated in Austin
    We started using Seesaw last week and because the app has such a clean and easy to use interface, my 3rd graders are using it with joy and posting all their best work almost daily! Parents love it because they get instant updates when their student has added something to their portfolio and they can type or record a comment. I wish I had discovered this at the beginning of the year!
  • Amazing App 5/5

    By CECI0127
    This app has brought so many great opportunities to my students (4th grade). They are sharing their amazing work on the blog, with parents and it has helped with motivation and self esteem. It has also allowed them to integrate so much technology into the classroom. I started a little late in the year, but I will definitely start since Day 1 next school year.
  • Love this app 5/5

    By Pinlover2012
    This is such an easy app to use. The students and parents love it!!
  • Multiple classes 4/5

    By LlamaShark003
    It's a great app for sharing materials with classmates and the teacher, but I have one suggestion. Could you guys make it's so that you could be part of multiple classes at the same time?
  • Great App!! 5/5

    By AutismSpedTeacher
    I love using this app to share pictures of our school activities with parents! Parents love it too! It's a great way to stay connected with families.
  • Best app ever 5/5

    By Awe such
    Seesaw is perfect for the lower grades. It's like google classroom but you can do it with an iPad! We love that they can record their voices as they show their thinking.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By Rocketfly
    My students love showing what they know, Parents love seeing and hearing their children demonstrate their thoughts and skills, and learning, and it gives me a great window into what my students are thinking and able to do. Can't say enough great things about this wonderful tool!
  • AMAZING 5/5

  • Seesaw 5/5

    By Susieqsellers
    I just recently began using Seesaw in my classroom. I am in love with it! My parents also love the app. My communication with my parents is much better now.
  • Garbage app 1/5

    By Exuded used
    This app is garbage, if you gave it a 5 star, you're also garbage
  • Great for a classroom 5/5

    By deeweeann
    I have really enjoyed every aspect of this app. I can easily take pictures of my students assessments, creations, writings, buildings and put them directly into a folder very easily. The BEST part is- it does not fill up your camera roll! So all of these pro tires are tucked nicely away in an app that parents connect with. I would love a little easier way to pull ALL pictures off of the app, it it is really not t bad one at a time.
  • Simply fantastic 5/5

    By Kiwi 61
    I'm delighted with this app. So simple for 5 & 6 year olds to use. Thank goodness for the approval system so I can decline a photo of the carpet or someone's toes!!
  • Professor of Physical Science 5/5

    By Rick Balogh
    If I could give 25 stars it wouldn't be enough for this outstanding application. Having taught nearly 40 years I have seen nothing as good as seesaw for evaluating what the student really understands. I use seesaw in my lecture and lab geography classes at the college level to test for understanding by the students. If they really know something well they can explain it and defend it - the first 2 letters of "educate". Seesaw allows my students freedom to express answers in a variety of ways where I can assess how confidently they know the material. Since information is independent of how it is transmitted, student's can select the best way for them as individuals to express the information learned. The student identity problem is no longer a problem since I know their voices in narrated sketches and their faces in selfie video answers. No more papers to grade as everything can be done online - even giving my feedback in writing or by an audio note. I encourage every teacher to say goodbye to multiple-choice and true false testing and instead have students record their answers in their own words on seesaw. It is an awesome way to evaluate what they know and how well they know it.
  • Secondary school 4/5

    By Nojukha
