How do students sign in to my class if I'm using Email / Google Account sign in?

You can set up your Seesaw class to have your students to sign in using their email address or Google Accounts. Email/Google Account Sign in requires that your students have existing email addresses or Google Accounts and that they know their email and passwords.  

To create a new Email/Google Account Sign in class, tap your Profile Icon and then tap + New Class. Name your class, select your grade level and save.

You do not need to enter any student names or email addresses. Students will log in to their Google account and join your class the first time they use Seesaw.
