Activity URLs for Students
TLDR :-D : Seesaw GREATLY needs URL links to take students directly to a particular activity.
Long, example-filled explanation: If teachers organize their day (common for K-3), week (4-8), or unit (specialists) using buttons/links on a Google Slide, it is easier to publish it in Seesaw as an activity or an announcement and have students start there, especially because it's very visual/inline--not just a link to click on first. This is a HUGE plus for Seesaw. In fact, I'm switching all my classes K-8 to Seesaw for this starting in the fall. However, teachers can add links on the slide to everything--web sites, Google or other assignments--everything BUT a Seesaw activity, because unlike just about every other student activity on the web, there's no URL to take a student to a Seesaw activity. This puts Seesaw activities at a HUGE disadvantage compared to completing assignments anywhere else. In addition to being a problem for using various means of organizing assignments, this is a problem for any teachers forced to use Google or any other non-integrated LMS as their main site, because they then can't link to Seesaw activities easily, and it's also a problem for any teacher above 2nd grade, because many of them must have at least some Google/Office assignments--if they had URLs for Seesaw assignments it'd be easier for them to regularly include Seesaw as well.
