The Power of Provocation with SEESAW!
Go beyond the basics with Seesaw in the K-5 classroom! Seesaw can be especially powerful with inquiry because students can easily navigate the icons to upload digital drawings, audio clips, notes, video, images, and files. Since Seesaw is a digital portfolio, it can capture daily learning and inquiry processes. It makes it super simple to share curiosities formed during provocation exploration. Images and video of learning (in action) are great artifacts of the inquiry journey of your students.
