      • Seesaw breakdown:
        • Teachers push out activities (assignments) to students.
        • Students can respond to an activity as directed or more open ended.
        • Many ways for students to respond and show their work - Picture, video, draw, video of drawing, text, links, files, audio
      • Seesaw can act as a LMS. Think Google Classroom + digital portfolio + parent communication!

      • I already have Google Classroom. Do I need Seesaw?” - It doesn’t have to be an either/or. Depends on goals and learning environment.
