  • Best platform to use for elementary school


    By lmhoug
    I have always loved Seesaw, but when we suddenly got thrown into distance learning I had to think on my feet and use Seesaw on a whole new level. Seesaw did not disappoint! I was able to use it to assign activities to students on different levels, on different days at different times. I could provide feedback and interact with my students either through text or audio recordings. I even could record myself making changes to their assignments so they could see how to do their assignment. I also created a class blog so that my students could interact with each other while at home. This allowed them to post pictures or videos and comment on each other’s posts. I was still the moderator on all of those. I raved about it so much that my district has now purchased it for all of our elementary schools to use! I highly recommend it!!!!
  • Decent for distance learning


    By anomly1
    Like many, I’m sure, I have been using the Seesaw app for distance learning during the Covid-19 pandemic. Overall, the app has been beneficial for the teachers to share the lesson plans and we utilize the app similar to a social media (FB) platform by responding to the teacher’s posts with the completed assignments. Unfortunately , this is also why I only rate the app 3 stars. The issue is that once I’ve responded to an activity posted by the teacher, there are no indicators that the particular assignment was completed/responded by me resulting in a lot of time spent searching through activities that need to be completed. I liken this issue to having read an email in Outlook and then going back later for that one email but all emails are marked as “unread”. It would be excellent if the developer were to create a means for the completed assignments to be highlighted that it has been responded to/completed. Further, it would be additionally helpful if the app indicated that the instructor reviewed the students work and whether it needed to be redone.
  • Such an improvement!


    By Reinaag
    In my previous review, I had written that while Seesaw had many amazing features, it was missing a feature that was important to home-school communication: the ability for parents to send pictures through private messaging. Now, the latest update gives that ability and more! Not only can parents/teachers send pictures through private messaging, but also videos, pdf files, and others! Now, my one remaining wish for Seesaw is to have something to the School Story feature similar to Class Dojo. This feature will help schools share school-wide activities/announcements to families. Seesaw is amazing!
  • Decent App. Needs to handle submission errors more gracefully!


    By jimiamoore
    The app is good. It could be great if developers could enable the app to auto-save or at minimum handle submission issues more gracefully. Over the past year and a half of use my tech savvy kids have lost hours worth of work due to issues with submission. If they happen to be outside of WiFi range for a second during submission or if Seesaw is having an issue on there end their completed assignment will be lost completely. The app needs to hold onto the completed work until it confirms a successful upload. Currently it does not do this and if you click submit and encounter an issue you will almost certainly loose everything. I am an IT professional with enterprise grade access points all over my home. I trust the development team is aware is this issue and is working on it. Until they fix it I have tried to coach my kids to continually save a draft of their work so that a submission issue won’t be quite as devastating.
  • Great application


    By Gauri12985
    I enjoy using Seesaw for myself as a parent and for my child as well. It’s been a great tool this past week as we started distance learning. Communication between students and teacher is made easy and submitting completed assignments is literally a piece of cake. All in all a great user friendly app for schools and students. Definitely beats Schoology!! The only thing I’d really like added is a way for my child to keep track of completed vs not completed assignments. With online learning there’s sometimes 10+ assignments every day and they’re impossible to “mark as completed.” If the developer would find a way to improve the app in this aspect I’m positive you’d make all of us parents lives easier as we push through becoming homeschool teachers with no qualifications. 🥴
  • Amazing app for the classroom, but...


    By Derek Smalls On Bass
    I love everything about See Saw as a teacher, however they have made a change in that when I try and share a picture from my phone with my student’s parent (via the app), it no longer allows me to add a simple caption below the photo. This is important as I need to be able to give a brief explanation to the parent as to what is occurring. Rather, when I select the photo(s) from my phone’s camera roll to share, the app only lets me select the student’s name/family to share with, but then immediately posts the picture before I am given a chance to add a caption. This never used to happen last school year. Please, developers, make the fix to change it back to allow adding captions from my phone app. Thank you!
  • Piece of crap


    By SquishyShroom
    There is no capilization or auto correct on it, which drives me mad! I am a student and we use this for distance learning and there is no way you can even correctly do an assignment because you are up late trying to redo stuff and think about what you did wrong. And you can’t even edit pictures. Like, on one assignment, I had to get a picture of a koala, and I couldn’t get just a koala, even though my teacher wanted just a koala pic. And you can’t even take videos! There has been many video assignments that I fail because you can’t take videos! There is no reason for this to exist. It would be better if everyone just used discord or group chat for this stuff. You can do pictures an videos on that! It is also practicaly impossible to draw something. I have had to draw a graph before, and nobody could tell what it even was! Everyone else failed that too. That is why seesaw is a piece of crap.
  • Great, but I’d like some additions


    By Jazz Pasco
    Like many other people, I use a lot of SeeSaw during this pandemic, so I have to deal with some issues that get pretty annoying when I deal with them every day. First of all, a button to hide the tool bar would be helpful. Second, you can’t do anything to videos that are recorded, like cut out parts or crop it. Third, you can only post videos individually, so I have to make a video separate from my post. Fourth, an auto save would be helpful because if I accidentally close the app or something, all of my work is erased. Last, this is a small thing, but when I scroll down, then go somewhere else, I have to scroll back down and find the assignment. Other than that, it’s a helpful and easy-to-use app.
  • I would like to see some improvements


    By lillianj29
    I have had a pretty good experience with seesaw so for the most part I am very happy. I just had 1 concern. So when you are looking at your assignments at the top right corner is a calendar sign and I was very exited. So I clicked it and it showed me what I already sent. I was a little confused. I would prefer if it showed when my assignments were due. I think it would help a lot of people I would defiantly use it. I would like if it also had holidays like Christmas or memorial day when most schools have it off. It would surely help. But otherwise seesaw is great. I hope everyone is doing great. Have a nice day! ❤️😀
  • Work in progress


    By jack12344321$$
    Seesaw is great for casually keeping parents in the loop with their kids work in school and some limited amount of outside of school learning. It is not great in how it organizes content or in how it lets you search for content. It is mainly set up in a blog style format putting the most recent assignments at the top. Unfortunately by default it resets you to the newest item in the “news feed”. This can make navigating to old assignments very difficult. There is a calendar view for completed assignments, but not for assignments in the “news feed” queue. Some schools are trying to stretch seesaw into their primary distance learning vehicle and that is clearly not its intended purpose. In order for that to work the basic interface needs to be evaluated and updated.
