How do I change my students' profile icons?

How teachers can change student profile icons:

  1. Tap the wrench in the top right corner.
  2. Tap ‘Manage Students’.
  3. Choose a student > Tap ‘Icon’ > Choose a different icon or tap ‘Use Photo’ at the bottom of the screen. You can take a photo using your device or select a photo from the camera roll.
  4. Tap the back arrow to save the new icon.

How students can change profile icons (email sign in only):

  1. Sign in as a student.
  2. Tap the profile icon in the top left corner and then tap the gear.
  3. Tap ‘Account Settings’.
  4. Select ‘Camera’ or ‘Photo Library’ to choose a picture.

If your students sign in with Google, Seesaw will use the profile icon from the student’s Google account.

*Please note, that once students that use an email or Google log in change their icon, they will not be able to go back to the default icon of initials
