How to use the synchronized draw and record feature

Starting with a blank drawing canvas or any photo, you can draw, add labels, AND record voice at the same time! This is a great way for students to explain their thinking that is built right into Seesaw. This feature is available on Chromebooks, iOS, Android, and the webapp!

1. Tap the green +Add button.

2. Tap Post to Student Journal (you can also create an example under 'Share Activity').

3. Tap the Drawing, Photo, or Upload Creative Tool.

4. If you are using the Drawing tool, tap the microphone icon. You will see a countdown and your recording will begin. You can explain your thinking while you draw or add labels.
