Seesaw Journal: A Tool for English Language Learners

February 5, 2015

Last month I shared Seesaw, a new app from the makers of Shadow Puppet that provides a quick and easy way to capture student work.  Seesaw Journal lets students snap a picture of their work and record their voice.  It provides a unique way for children to interact with what they’ve learned and demonstrate their understanding at the same time.

English Language Learners

Parents of English Language Learners who may have difficulty connecting with teachers who speak a different language can also benefit.  Seesaw provides visual updates to parents that cross language barriers and reach parents via app, email, or text message.  Parents can easily stay informed of progress and become more engaged with their child’s learning.

Update: Seesaw is also available on Chrome.
