How should students sign in for remote learning?

In order to complete activities at home and post student work, students will need access to the Class App or they will need to sign in as a student from app.seesaw.me from a computer. Families can use the Family App to view their child’s work and announcements sent by the teacher. Family accounts cannot respond to Activities or post directly to a student journal.

Please find our FAQ for Remote Learning for teachers here. 

For families who have questions about remote learning, please find a family FAQ guide for remote learning here.

If your students sign in with email addresses, Clever, or ClassLink:

The best way for students to access Seesaw from home is with an email address or through Clever/ClassLink SSO. 

If students are using tablet or phone devices for home learning, they will need to download the Seesaw Class App onto their device. If they already have the Class App on a home device, they will need to UPDATE the app for home learning codes to work. Students can also access the latest version of Seesaw from any computer at app.seesaw.me

If your students do not have an email:

If your students do not sign in with an email address, then we recommend they sign in with a Home Learning Code. Home learning codes allow students to sign in to Seesaw, view their journal, add posts, complete activities, and receive class announcements from their teachers. Students do not see the work of other students in the class. Home Learning Codes will remain active for one year. 

If you have a subscription to Seesaw for Schools your school administrator will need to turn on this feature. Please contact your school administrators (Principal, Technology Coordinator, etc.) directly. Please check out how Administrators can support remote learning here.

If students are using tablet or phone devices for home learning, they will need to download the Seesaw Class App onto their device. If they already have the class app on a home device, they will need to UPDATE the app for home learning codes to work. Student can also access the latest version of Seesaw from any computer at app.seesaw.me

Sign in as a teacher from the WEB and tap the wrench icon. Home Learning codes can only be generated from a computer.

  1. Tap ‘Home Learning Student Codes’.   Screen_Shot_2020-03-12_at_3.55.05_PM.png
  2. Print or Download codes to distribute to students. Each student will have a unique QR code and a 16-letter text code available as a PDF (one page per student) or CSV (by class or for all students taught by a teacher) that is valid for one year. Teachers can get a new code at any time.
  3. You do not need to change your class sign in mode.

Once signed in, a student will stay signed in for up to one year until they sign out. If a student code is compromised, you can reset the code for the student or the entire class under the wrench icon>Home Learning Codes.

Students can sign in with Home Learning codes with the instructions below:

  1. If students are using tablet or phone devices for home learning, they will need to download the Seesaw Class App onto their device. If they already have the class app on a home device, they will need to UPDATE the app for home learning codes to work. Student can also access the latest version of Seesaw from any computer at app.seesaw.me
  2. Go to the Seesaw Class app or app.seesaw.me and select ‘I am a student’.
  3. Type in the 16 digit text code or scan the individualized QR code.

If students are already using their email addresses to sign into Seesaw, they can continue to do so from home. To ensure student work remains private at home, make sure to tap the wrench icon in your teacher account and toggle 'students can see each other's work' OFF. This way students can only access their own posts and are unable to look at other student work.

                
If students are spending some time in the classroom and some time at home:

When students are working at home, they need to sign in with their individualized Home Learning Code, email, Clever/ClassLink SSO. 

When students are in the classroom, they can sign in with their Class Code, email, or through Clever/ClassLink SSO. The Class Code should only be used in the physical classroom. To protect student privacy, the Class Code should not be sent home with students to sign in from home. Students who do not sign in via email/Google should sign in from home using the Home Learning Code.

If students are sharing the same device with a sibling at home:

If students are sharing a device, then the first student will need to log OUT before a second student can log IN.
