The Gift of Digital Portfolios – Seesaw

Have you ever asked your student, “How was your day? What did you learn?  What happened at school today?” and received an answer like this?  “Nothing.  We did nothing.  I learned nothing. “

I can guarantee you that no day goes by at Mt. Bethel when NOTHING happens or NOTHING is learned.

Our Foundation funds Seesaw – a digital Portfolio – with protected interactivecapability!  Students and teachers can upload content. Pictures and videos (often annotated) appear on each student’s feed and parents have the ability by viewing Seesaw content to be a “fly on the wall,” peeking into the classroom.  Parents can add comments and peek into their student’s day.

With such a large school, I am not always able to physically make it into every classroom every week.  However, Seesaw emails me a weekly update with usage reports and I can peek into every classroom via this amazing tool!  I can listen to kindergarten students read, watch class performances, view demonstrations of learning, and track progress.

We are grateful that our Foundation funds this resource and hope that you all have taken the opportunity to enjoy Seesaw!  If you have not yet taken the opportunity, ask your child to login and to show you their digital portfolio that will follow them from Kindergarten through Fifth Grades.
