"View As"

A button to be able to toggle the view from teacher to a selected student (or sample student). Since there is no way to log-on as the sample student, it will make it easier to fully see what the kids are seeing as they complete activities or add posts. Moreover, it will make demonstration of where to click and find things much easier when the kids can see a screen that looks like what they actually see. It will also simplify from having to add a fake student and log in and out of it constantly.

  • Did you receive any answers or suggestions for this post?  We are new to Seesaw and this question keeps coming up.  We are having a difficult time viewing the same page as the student.

    Help.

  • I really support this. It would be incredibly helpful when trouble shooting with students to be able to see what they are seeing.

    The Sample Student is great, but it doesn't allow me to see what they are seeing, unless there's a way I can login as Sample Student?????

    Thank you.

  • Yes, please. When trying to walk first-time parents through this virtually, we can't physically look at the students' screen.

  • Agreed. It's hard to make orginational decisions when I have no idea what it looks like for students.

  • The way I've worked around this is I made a fake student and I've signed in on another device as that fake student. It's great for testing out how things look from the student's perspective. 

    I agree that having a "view as" feature would be really helpful.

  • Agreed!  I was just trying to find a way to see how a student finds their activities or in progress work.  I'm not able to add a fake student because our admin. populated out Seesaw classrooms.
