Step #6: Select record

Step #7: Using annotations and drawings, tell us a bit about

what you learned.

Assignment #4: Setting up your own class
For this portion of the workshop I want participants to explore
the app on their own with less step-by-step guidance. I will
walk you through getting started, then let you explore and
complete these goals on your own. I will come to each work
station and help anyone who needs additional guidance.
Goals:
• Create class
• Import Roster (three people sitting near
you)
• Adjust settings
• Add student (someone sitting near you)
• Approve Assignment
• Tag Student

What is your specific learning situation?
How could you use SeeSaw in your class?
