This has been an exciting summer for NEISD Technology Services. Our district just purchased Seesaw for Schools for every one of our 46 elementary campuses. This platform provides our teachers the opportunity to effectively communicate with parents and collect student work that shows growth over time. Students now have the means to make their thinking visible so the teacher can quickly clarify misconceptions, and students can choose the way they wish to create a unique project by using one of the 7 options in the learning journal.
The one feature I’m most excited about is the ability to easily share student work by printing a QR code to display in the hallway. This gives the old bulletin board concept of everyone having the EXACT same looking product a much needed 2.0 makeover. You can read more about using Seesaw QR codes here.
I’ve created a presentation to help get you started with sharing your class “smarts”.
