How do I change default class settings?

Seesaw Administrators have the ability to change default class settings that will impact all classes in their schools. To change your school's class settings in bulk, go to your Administrator Dashboard > Edit School Settings (on the right under Admin Tools) > Manage Default Class Settings. Read below to get an idea of what these settings do. 

  • Student sign in mode
    • Class Code: Shared Devices: For younger students in classrooms with shared devices. Students sign in by scanning a QR code.

They can only add new posts and will not see their own journals or anyone else’s.
