If you want to organize student work by subject area or learning objectives, you can create Folders in your class. Folders are visible to teachers and students, as well as family members if you have invited them to your class. To set and use folders in Seesaw, please follow the steps below.
From here you can name your folder and add a color. Tap the back arrow to save this folder and exit.
The other way to access and create folders is to tap the blue folder icon next to your class feed or in the Activities tab.
Teachers can also add items to a Folder from the journal view. Just tap the Folder icon below an item and choose which item it should be added to.
If you want your students to be prompted to add work to folders, you need to turn folders ON for your students.
How to turn folders ON for students:
- Tap wrench icon.
- Scroll down to 'Show add to folder step.'
- Turn this to 'Students and teachers.'
- Press the back arrow to save.
Your students will now be prompted to add work to folders when they add a post.
Note: Even if students are not prompted to add work to folders, they will still have the ability to edit the Folder that their journal posts are tagged to if Item Editing is enabled in your class. To do so, students can tap the [...] button and select 'Edit Folders.' If you do not want students to have the ability to edit Folders, you can disable Item Editing in your Class Settings.
