How do families download an archive of their child's work?

Here's how to download a .zip archive of your child's Seesaw journal, including images, videos, audio recordings, and text notes or captions. For a French translation of these instructions, click here

Students who sign into Seesaw using their email address can also download their .zip archive by following these instructions. 

1. Sign into your Family account at

2. Tap your Profile Icon on the top left.


3. Tap the Gear Icon.


4. Tap Account Settings.


5. Scroll down and tap Download Journal Archives.


6. Tap the Download Journal button for the journal you want to download. This might take awhile depending on your Internet speed and how many posts your child has in Seesaw. 


This is what you get! It is organized by month and then ordered by the date the post was added. You'll see an html file with a thumbnail, text notes or captions, folder names and links (if the post used the Link content creation tool). You'll also see the original image, video or audio files.
