ITS SO GOOD 5/5
By love valentina!
I am in 3rd grade and my teacher has been using this on virtual days and it’s like so good for teachers.
Slow, cumbersome, and difficult to use. 1/5
I just want to message my kid’s teacher to ask a question about their homework, but apparently there is yet ANOTHER glitch in the software today. Outages and bugs are all too common in this app.
Disappointed in the Updates 3/5
I have been using Seesaw as a teacher for 7 years and I love Seesaw! However, many of the updates this year are not user friendly for teachers or families. The update that I am having the most difficulty with is the new way teachers comment on student work on my phone. It is just a running line and there is no way to view it before it is posted. I know you can edit it after it’s posted but it makes the process inconvenient. In previous versions you could see your whole message and were able reread it before posting. This makes me not want to check Seesaw posts on my phone which puts me behind on checking my students’ work. I always have my phone with me but I don’t always have a computer. Whenever I have a free moment I would check it. I know many teachers who prefer to check their Seesaw on their phones. Can we please go back to the old version of commenting on student work? I want my students and families to see my feedback in a timely manner.
Always down. 2/5
My daughters teacher is telling us it’s always down. True? Or is the teacher not willing to put in the time to update parents and blames it on the app?
Your Improvements are terrible 1/5
I don’t know what you did between last school year and now, but this app is complete junk this year! I also am unable to send a message to the teacher as it keeps saying bad request
Error message keeps popping up 1/5
When I try to click the messages from the teachers, it pops up a message saying error -“402” or something of that nature. It’s been down all day! I’ve deleted the app and redownloaded it.
Missing the heart react button 3/5
Newest update removed the reaction button. I liked having a way to acknowledge I have seen and liked the post without having to write a comment. Bring the reaction button back please.
New update is beyond disappointing 1/5
I had used and absolutely loved Seesaw as a teacher for years until the newest update came out and made everything about it ridiculously difficult to start this school year. What used to be an incredibly user friendly and intuitive app is now a nightmare to navigate. Everything from trying to print parent QR codes, to the new messaging system, to even uploading pictures has been absurdly difficult or downright impossible. All of the teachers I know cannot stand the changes! I’m ready to ditch Seesaw completely for next year if the app remains as it is currently.
I love it
New Update 3/5
By KCL 6748
I’ve loved seesaw, I’ve used it to connect with my kids teachers for a few years now. I absolutely HATE the new update and everyone I’ve talked to about it does too. You can’t click and zoom in on pics, when you zoom in on the frame that’s there it’s next to impossible to move the picture around. I feel like I’m always searching to find messages. The message center looks and feels like complete chaos and it feels like it takes forever for things to load. If you don’t change it back at least fix the picture problem.
No way to select family members by name 3/5
The new app doesn’t allow us to view family member names and send them a message via the app.
Used to be 5 Stars 2/5
I just wanted to pass along my opinion of the new update/ layout of the app. This will be my 5th school year using the Seesaw app as a parent, and I am very disappointed about the new update/ layout. The app previously was so simple, quick and easy to use. However, since all the changes, I find the app not to be nearly as user friendly. I feel it was amazing before, and now has become unnecessarily complicated. Please go back to a simpler, user friendly layout.
Terrible security and student privacy 1/5
Seesaw uses a single login credential (unique hash / ID) for students to log in if schools configure it to. If these are shared, as some generally naive teachers may do for every student to their entire class, they cannot be reset / regenerated by the student (or parent). The result is (as in our case) kids, even in 3rd grade, “hacking” or threatening to “hack” each other. Absolutely terrible. This is where your kids put their class work, comments, and private communications with their teachers. I am disappointed that my kids’ school uses it. When I log in as my child I see nothing in account settings that would allow me to change the login mode to email/password. This choice should not be teacher-controlled once accounts are given to students. Frankly this choice should not be available as it is inherently insecure. Schools, parents, students (etc) have a tendency to print spreadsheets of credentials and leave them sitting around.
New Version is terrible! 1/5
I want the old version back.
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT??? 1/5
By Frustrated First Grade Teacher
I absolutely hate everything about your new changes!!!! Instead of making the app easier for teachers and parents you found every possible way to make it harder!
Change it back!!!!
Hate Updated App 1/5
The older version was way better. I can’t find the messages from teachers. I keep going in circles and can’t find it unless I go to e-mail notification and still doesn’t go right to message. Not user friendly anymore!😔
What happened? 2/5
This worked great last year. This year messages don’t come across my phone. I can see the messages on the tablet but we keep the tablet at home. Should the teacher need to message me while I’m work I won’t see it until i get home. I couldn’t send a message to my child’s teacher for the first week. I see now there at “start a conversation” button. Whatever update happened did not help on the phone app.
Message system failure 2/5
So why have a message system if only the teacher can send the first message? That is crazy. Our school system just started this program and I am not impressed. So if I need to correspond with teachers I can’t unless they send me first. It’s great they are sharing stuff about my boys but I also need to send them updates from time to time as well. It’s also not user friendly in my opinion. I gave it two stars as it would be an awesome app if it was thought out more.
App is terrible 1/5
I’m so tired of having to force quit the app just for it to update. I’ll get notifications all day and every time I open the app to view my messages, nothing is there. I have to force quit the app for it to refresh. This is happening to every parent in my kids class currently
Impossible to use for twins in the same class 2/5
By HK Beef
Worst app if you have twins in the same class. Really not user friendly. Why haven’t they figured this out?
New update is worthless 1/5
This went from being my favorite way of communicating with parents to the worst in one update - Messaging. Why fix something that wasn't broken? Why are we making it harder for parents to communicate back to us by trying to search for dots with a hidden menu when simply replying is easier for all? In the day and age of open communication between schools and families, this update ain't it. Seesaw - check out the reviews since you've added the changed messaging features. Your users don't like it. Please fix it.
Update terrible 2/5
We loved the app then there was a recent update and it has thrown everything off. Can’t do things we used to be able to do like communicate individually. Have to move to something else which is sad.
Update is a disaster 1/5
We have been using SeeSaw for over three years and the new update is a nightmare. Our families can no longer respond to posts. Navigating the app is cumbersome. We spend hours trying to upload photos while being told we are not connected to the internet. I really hope this gets fixed soon.
New update 1/5
LOVED this app until the new update. It freezes and messages that I send disappear. It also doesn’t let me upload from safari on my browser anymore.
New Messaging Update is Awful 2/5
I LOVE this app and have been using it for 7 years. I was so excited when they said they were merging class and family into 1 and updating. The update is awful with messages though. I am a kinder teacher and it used to be so easy to find and message parents for my class. Now I have to jump through a ton of hoops to even create a message. I can’t just scroll through parent names of my class to send a message I have to actually know their names and search which often times in the beginning of the year I don’t off they top of my head. I have parents emailing that they can’t write a message to me or reply. They used to easily be able to just type under any message I sent and it would go privately to me. I have watched the video on this over and over but it doesn’t match what they see on their end. I love the idea of group messages but the rest of this is garbage. I was also hoping families would be able to add to their children’s journal since they help with the homework at home. Now they are having to log between student and family accounts. I hyped up this app to my families like I do every year but they are frustrated and not impressed this year. I hope they rework this or go back to the old user friendly way or we may have to find another program.
NEW UPDATE DOES NOT WORK 1/5
The new update is not working it’s super glitchy and it’s uploading all the way! HELP
So many educational tools! This app is fantastic.

OMG SO BORING MAKE IT FUN 3/5
By Ausyn Pro
So it hurts my hand and I hate it
It’s good 5/5
I like seesaw cause unlike other educational apps it doesn’t treat u like a 2 year old so I appreciate that
The person behind me is right
I love this app, but I wish my phone would ding when it got a message from a parent. Sometimes it will notify me and sometimes it won’t! If we could fix those issues I’d give it five stars!
Seesaw is great! 5/5
I love using seesaw (since I’m in elementary school) is let’s me show my work to my teachers and they can comment if I made a mistake on my work or if I did a good job. Seesaw can also let you draft your work if you need to keep working on it so yeah. It’s also really good for virtual learning cause since the pandemic started I’ve been using seesaw to show my work to my teachers so yeah, that’s all I have to say stay safe and byeeeee.
Seesaw has been a life saver since COVID! 5/5
I’m a Kindergarten teacher who is SO grateful for the Seesaw app! 🥰 When the COVID shut down of my school happened 2 years ago, I was in a bit of a panic as to how I was supposed to teach kindergartners online and give them learning activities that would help them practice the skills I was trying to teach! I was introduced to Seesaw which my school adopted as a mainstay to our remote learning. I love the easy access for both teachers & students, the fun & engaging learning activities and videos and I love the tracking system for completing the assignments. I also love the feature that allows teachers to leave comments, edit activities & make corrections for quick feedback to students and parents! I also love that the parents can see their child’s progress and receive/send messages too! 💕THANK YOU FOR CREATING the SEESAW APP!
Technical login problems 1/5
Logs me out and asks me to enter the code sent by teacher which i no longer have.
Garbage UX. Whoever made this has no business designing educational apps. Truly worthless.
me I am a theacher this app is amazing for my kids 5/5
So good you make cool jobs for your kids class or no class it’s aswome
New messaging platform 1/5
I have used Seesaw for the last four years and have LOVED it. However, I am so disappointed in the new messaging platform and find it not as user friendly for my classroom needs.
