How do I send an assignment to my students?

If you want to upload an item into Seesaw for all of your students to make their own edits on top of, here’s how:

Make sure that you have Student Editing ON for your class. Tap Your Profile Icon > Manage Class > Enable Student Editing > ON.

Posting Assignments for Students 

  1. Add the item into Seesaw from your teacher account. Students can edit on top of images, drawings or notes. Students can view videos, links and PDFs (or open them in other apps). 
  2. Do not tag the item with any student names. It will show up in the Class Feed as posted by you. No parents will be notified. 
  3. Have students navigate to the item in the Class Feed. Students can 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.

Differentiating Instruction

If you'd like to use Seesaw to differentiate instruction, you can create a "student" for each learning group. For example, Blue Math Group, Red Math Group, Purple Math Group. Then ask students to check their group for their assignment.
