How do teachers download and print student work from Seesaw

There are multiple ways to print student work in Seesaw. You can print single Seesaw journal posts, Activities that are assigned in a Seesaw class, and print in bulk by student or by folder!

Download and Print a Single Journal Post from a Student Journal
  1. Locate the post you want to print and tap the [...] button.
  2. Choose Print. This will print the first page of the item. If comments are included, the first 5 comments will print, along with a special QR code that links to just that item on the web.

Alternatively, if you don't want to print the QR code, save the item to your device and then print it. This will allow you to print ONLY the item, and not the post itself.

  1. Tap the [...] button on the post.
  2. Tap Save item.
  3. Open the saved item on your device.
  4. Print from your device/computer.

Print from a Student Account

Students are not able to print or save items to their device in Seesaw unless they're using an email address or the class is set to 1:1 QR code login.

It is easiest to print from a computer. If your student needs to print a post but doesn't have the option, family members can log in to their app and save items to print. Note: If you are a family member and do not see the option to save the item, please contact the teacher directly to make sure that they have this feature turned ON for the class.

  1. Tap the [...] button on the post.
  2. Tap Save item.
  3. Open the saved item on your device.
  4. Print from your device/computer.
Print an Activity Template
Sometimes you might find that you want your student to print a blank Activity template from your Seesaw Activity. The Print Activity tool will help you to print only the template.

1. Go to the Activity in the Activities tab.

2. Tap the [...] button.
3. Select Print Activity.

This will provide a multipage document that includes the Seesaw QR Code to the Activity within the class and each page of the student template. Please note that students must be logged into their student account to scan this QR code and bring up the assigned Activity. 

If an Activity was created by uploading a PDF or a Google Doc, you can also use the View Original button to print from the original document.
