Ability to mark on student assignments

I am providing feedback from my colleagues regarding features they feel would make their teaching more effective when using Seesaw, especially if we are engaging in full distance learning in the fall. 

Teachers would love to be able to digitally draw, circle, underline or otherwise mark directly onto student work to provide feedback, in addition to providing comments.

  • I agree that a way to annotate student work without having to make a copy of it would be very helpful, especially if we end up in a remote learning scenario again.

  • I've been doing this by editing their post before I approve or send back.  You tap edit and then pick a bright color with the drawing tool or text box to circle, write, or type what you want them to know.  If I send it back for corrections, they can erase my circle or notes and fix their answers. Some erase and some leave them there.  Are you thinking you want an easier way to do this?

  • I do the same where I click Edit Post either before I approve it or right after it's been added to the journal (if I wanted to go back later and add something). I liked the idea of putting digital stickers on their work. The students loved it!

  • Thanks to both of you!  I passed this info along to my colleague and she was super excited to hear this.

  • Thanks everyone. This is really helpful. I'd still love to be able to add simple emoji's or stickers though (like a smiley face if the work is correct, and a ? if it needs attention, but this is a good compromise. I'll be passing this tip onto my colleagues.

  • Super easy to add virtual stickers. Just leave the stickers on your desktop. I have them in a dedicated folder. Click on the three dots to edit student work. Minimize your screen, open the folder for the virtual stickers and drag them onto the student's assignment. Super easy and really, really, impactful. My students love them!

  • Thank you Jennifer. 

    The biggest challenge doing this is that every time I edit a student's work it throws me out of the activity and back to the student's journal. That issue has been raised several times in several different ways but we're still waiting for a solution.

    Having just returned to fully online learning after six weeks of hybrid and two weeks of everyone at school, I'm not looking forward to the feedback process.
