USING SEE SAW TO ENGAGE IN AND WITH YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY

WHY HAVE WE CHOSEN TO MOVE FROM PLANNERS TO SEE SAW, AS A HOME SCHOOL COMMUNICATION TOOL?

Ten-Broeck is part of a pilot project.  We, along with two other schools, are using See Saw to showcase both your child's learning and an invitation for you to be directly involved in the classroom with both the teacher and your child. The big idea is to have families use real time moments from your child's class to have conversations at home about school events and what your child is doing in class!

  • A starter conversation could sound like this. "Let's sit down and look at your See Saw account.  What would you like me to see?"
  • "So tell me, what exciting news do we have on See Saw today?

THE BENEFITS OF SEE SAW:

  • It's an on-line digital portfolio for your child's learning journey that will showcase growth over time.
  • Families are able to provide feedback and have meaningful on-going converations with teachers.
  • Your child is able to respond to your positive feedback!
  • This tool provides many snapshots into your child's classroom.
  • It's preparing them for the digital world that we all live in.
  • It's building authenticity with our  HOME-SCHOOL CONNECTION .
  • It's a POSITIVE and CREATIVE way to use technology.
