SeeSaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best. Teachers can empower students to create, reflect, share, and collaborate. SeeSaw can help teachers deeply understand student thinking and progress. Students “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. It’s simple to get student work in one place and share with families, and nothing is shared without teacher approval. SeeSaw can allow families to gain a window into their student’s learning and celebrate progress.    https://web.seesaw.me/parents
