What is Copy and Edit?

If you want to upload an item into Seesaw for all of your students to make their own edits on top of (like drawing, voice recording or captions), you can use the Copy & Edit feature. 

First, turn in editing for your class: 

  1. Tap your profile icon
  2. Tap Manage Class
  3. Turn "Enable Student Editing" to ON

Now you can add items for your students to make their own edits on top of: 

  1. Add the item into Seesaw from your teacher account. Works best with images and notes.
  2. Tag it with Everyone.
  3. Have students tap the [...] button below the item and choose “Copy & Edit”. This will duplicate the item and students can make their own annotations on top of it.
  4. When they’re finished, students should submit the item like normal. It will show up as a new item in your teacher approval queue.
