A Tutorial of Seesaw Home Learning For Parents.

Here is a video tutorial for you to share with parents if you choose to use Seesaw for remote home learning. In this video, I explain how to download the app...

At Ysgol Trefnant we use Seesaw to communicate with parents/carers and to share learning experiences. It is a platform that allows schools and pupils to engage with parents and carers to create an online environment which

  • empowers pupils to take ownership of their learning and to reflect on their progress over time.
  • gives pupils tools to show what they know in the way that works best for them.
  • inspires pupils to try their best by providing an audience for their work beyond the classroom.
  • creates a meaningful home-school connection so that parents and carers can better support their child’s learning.


Pupils can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. Seesaw helps capture the learning process and children can use Seesaw’s built-in audio recording and drawing tools to reflect on what they’ve learned or explain how they got their answer.


As a parent/carer you can collect pupil work from almost any device – Seesaw exists as an app on tablets and phones, as well as on a desktop computer.


How Seesaw works:

1: Teachers will provide your child's individual QR code. Download the 'SEESAW CLASS' app and scan/enter the individual code.

2: Pupils & teachers then add examples of learning, like photos, videos, or drawings and pupils can also add voice, text or drawing annotations to an item.  

3: Teachers approve new journal items which are then shared with parents and carers via the app.

4: Over time, Seesaw builds an organised, digital portfolio of each student’s learning, accessible via iOS app or on the web.  It is not shared with anyone else as each child has their own individual unique journal.


If you have any further questions regarding Seesaw then contact your class teacher via Class Dojo.
