Embed Code in Activities

I would love the ability to embed code into my activities. As a music teacher, this feature would be immediately useful to me to give my students some virtual instruments to play within my activities. It would also make it much easier for younger students to use tools like Chrome Music Lab without having to copy and paste links to their saved work. Outside of music, I can scarcely imagine the creative things teachers would find to embed in activities, but I would guess they might include dice, countdown timers, clocks, spinners, etc. I'm sure many teachers have some favorite widgets they've come to rely on with their interactive boards, and they would LOVE the opportunity to use them on virtual assignments, too. 

 

Thank you for your consideration!

  • Thank you Robert. I too teach music. I'm already in Google Classroom, now Seesaw; and some students use Clever; and I communicate with parents via Remind and Classroom. I'm creating a xylophone via Scratch; but I don't want to have my families bombarded with another app - their children have enough from their core teachers already, and music's supposed to be FUN! I wrote Seesaw about adding code also since I saw your message. It'd be nice if I didn't need Scratch to create an instrument - only to discover that I can't upload it anywhere else!

  • As a Kindergarten teacher, it would be wonderful to take short videos that we use in class and have kids be able to watch and respond all in the same tab instead of having multiple tabs open!  We have plenty of struggles using technology without adding in more confusion.

  • Please allow us to embed source codes from YouTube so that we can safely post videos without fear of autoplaying or inappropriate ads.

  • I concur with all that was said above. I am also a music teacher, and I would love to be able to embed things directly into activities, rather than students needing to leave seesaw. This would make activities in seesaw particularly accessible for our youngest learners.

  • I came here to say the exact same thing (music teacher, using scratch to make xylophones) lol!! Except my district has blocked scratch on the student devices that got checked out for distance learning so I don't even have that option. I've found this one https://xylo.playsprout.industries/ that is doing ok for now but would LOVE to have embed abilities in Seesaw!

  • I'd LOVE to be able to embed an html clock in my Seesaw visual schedule to help my littles come to class at the times on the schedule!  They can match the time on the clock to the time on the schedule to hopefully make it to calls and lessons on time.  :)

  • YES! DIDAX virtual manipulatives have an HTML embed code that I would love to put in my activities so that my students can use the tools without having to open different windows (especially difficult when they are on iPads).

  • I agree! I am a music teacher and I would love to use virtual instruments directly in Seesaw.

  • I totally agree! I have been trying to do this since we went fully remote in March.  I would love for my special need students to be able to use the DIDAX virtual manipulatives as well.  It would be so much easier for them to navigate, and this would give students even more access to so many  great tools.

  • This is a great idea!  I am a reading interventionist and my students struggle with having too many tabs open once they click on a link.  Then they struggle with finding their way back to the original page.  This would solve many problems.

  • Hi Seesaw, it's been 2 years since this was posted, and still no ability to embed code? It would be lovely if Seesaw could respond publicly on these forums, to let teachers know if we should stick around with Seesaw or jump ship to a platform that will support what we need.
