How do I introduce Seesaw schoolwide?

After you’ve created classes through CSV Roster Import, or Clever Sync, it’s time to introduce your staff to Seesaw!

Step 1: Email your teachers to let them know about Seesaw!

You will want to let your staff know that your school is going to be using Seesaw in the upcoming year! We’ve drafted an example email for you. Feel free to share it with your staff to help get them excited about Seesaw!

Example Email: 

Subj: Using Seesaw in your Classroom this year!

Staff,
[Our school] is using Seesaw for Schools this year! Seesaw gives students creative tools to capture and reflect on their learning - in real time. It’s easy to use and makes it simple to collect student work in one place and share with parents. Teachers also get upgraded features including additional co-teachers, private notes and folders, and skills for formative assessment and progress monitoring. We are so excited to support you and the great things you’re doing in your classrooms!

If you are new to Seesaw, we have created a Teacher account for you, and uploaded your current students. If you have used Seesaw before, we have already added your account to our school!

When you sign in, all of your class information will be ready for you. You do not need to create an account or upload your class roster to Seesaw. 

On [upload date], you will receive an email from Seesaw with directions to sign in to your Seesaw account. It’s important that you click the link in your email to set a password for your account, so you can sign in as a teacher. Download the Seesaw Class iOS or Android app on your devices or try signing in at app.seesaw.me on your computers.  

You can visit ideas.seesaw.me for tips and sample lesson ideas. There are also a lot of real world teaching examples on Seesaw’s Twitter account - @Seesaw. These videos show how Seesaw is being used in schools: [Video 1 & Video 2]

Please share comments and questions with [you or contact].

[Your Name]

 

Step 2: Schedule a PD session to teach your teachers about Seesaw!

Since some of your teachers may be brand new to Seesaw, you’ll want to give them an introduction to Seesaw so that they start off on the right foot.

We have developed this Interactive Training Session to help you introduce Seesaw to your staff!  

You can always refer to our Rollout Calendar to make sure you’re on track with getting your school set up!

 

Step 3: Create a Sample School Wide Activity

Introduce the School Activity Library to teachers by creating a school-wide activity! You can use this tool to promote a school-wide event, introduce yourself as an admin, or create a welcoming activity for new students.

Instructions for creating an activity can be found here. More information on the school wide library can be found here.
