Students across the District are using a new tool in the classroom. It’s an app called Seesaw and it allows classrooms to share work with each other and for teachers to monitor work more closely. In Mrs. Bailey’s 2nd Grade classroom at Cody, they’ve been using the app since the beginning of the year. Mrs. Bailey asks students to work together to review each others writing. In teams of two, they use a check list or a list of questions to edit each others work. Before, Mrs. Bailey had to trust that the students were having meaningful conversations, as she couldn’t hear every conversation at the same time. Now, students record their conversations on Seesaw and she can listen to each one! Students also post their own work in a safe environment only those in the classroom can see. They can comment on each other’s projects and give feedback. Mrs. Bailey says Seesaw has been a game changer. Check out this video of her describing the change in student work.
