Schedule Announcements, Reuse Posts, Student View

Thank you for the recent updates to Seesaw. Our teachers, students, and families have been so impressed by all the new features. Here are a few requests I often receive as a district Instructional Technologist:

1. Ability to schedule announcements AND post the same announcement (or reuse) to different classes at the same time.

2. Ability to reuse a "post to student journal" post across classes. Often times, our teachers want to post the same journal post across classes, not just to that one class. To be able to do this all at one time, or reuse a post would be helpful.

3. Student view- Our remote teachers would love the ability to see what the student see when helping troubleshoot and navigate Seesaw

  • Yes! I just contacted Seesaw about this. I am an art teacher and I just had to go into 12 different classrooms and copy and paste the same announcement over and over along with a link. It ended up taking quite a bit of time. I hope this changes in the very near future. I know you can assign the same activity to multiple classes which is great, but I hope they make the change to be able to do the same with announcements very soon. :-)

  • A big yes to student view. It would be so helpful when making instructional videos for kiddos to see exactly where to click and how to navigate.

  • Yes!!!!!  That #2 item has been my 3-5 and specials teachers' biggest complaint because they have multiple sections!  It's also mine, because I have multiple sections, LOL.  I just wrote a post on that!!!  Scheduling and copying announcements and being able to model student view with the sample student are both features I would use regularly as well.

  • Hi! I think I found a way to do this.  I was able to reuse a journal entry for multiple classes. 

    Once you post your journal entry to one class, you click on the three little dots at the bottom, then click "share post". You will copy the top link and then go into your class(es) and then click "add", click "post student work", click "link" and paste the link you copied in there, then click "done"

    I had a coworker test this out and it worked! Good luck.

  • Love the new SeeSaw School Announcement feature but it would be great if these could be scheduled in advance as activities.  This would be a game changer on many levels. Please consider adding this feature. Thanks!
