Seesaw 5.0 was recently released, and the new features are so exciting! Teachers can now send announcements and message with parents. Classroom accounts can be personalized even more than before. And teacher, student, and parent apps have all been updated for better interaction by everyone!
Seesaw is compatible with so many apps, including Google Drive! Basically, if you can save something as an image, video or PDF...or take a screenshot of it or get a weblink to it, it can be uploaded to Seesaw!
Seesaw offers all kinds of tutorial videos, and their support pages are full of ready to use resources. Seesaw is completely free for classroom teachers! If a teacher chooses, they can purchase Seesaw Plus to gain access to features like skills tagging and private teacher notes and folders. Schools can purchase Seesaw for Schools, which gives all teachers access to the extra features, and it provides access to an administrative dashboard for the entire school. (Teachers can request a trial of Seesaw Plus, which will give them access to the paid features for their own classroom.)
If you haven't checked it out yet, I encourage you to do so today! Make Seesaw part of your classroom this year!

I post items like general tech tips, updates to apps they use, and other instructions for using web apps.
