Using Present to Class in Seesaw lessons and activities

Present to Class allows teachers to present multimedia materials during whole class instruction and guided practice. This interactive whiteboard for whole class participation makes learning come to life through video, interactive texts, online artifacts, teacher modeling, and more! 


Present to Class mode is available for all lessons and activities, including lessons in the Seesaw Library, Community Library, and activities teachers create themselves. Additionally, teachers can preview lessons and activities as a student using View as Student mode. One of the key differences between these modes is that work performed while Presenting to Class can be saved to the class journal. Work cannot be saved while Viewing as a Student.

How do I use Present to Class?
Present to Class feature can be accessed from individual activities and lessons, as well as from the Activities tab
