A bit about Seesaw. Seesaw is a classroom app where students can post and reflect on their learning. It will help teach them the skills the need for collaboration, digital safety and digital citizenship. This will align with the model currently being used by the year 5 and 6 team through google app platform.
The benefit of Seesaw is that it is simple, students can post and add information, the teacher has full control and moderation of what is added, parents can be linked to their child's account, it can be integrated with a class blog. For these reasons it has been chosen over the etap parent portal. Also there is potential for this to be used across and middle and lower teams through the ease of use.
Notes from survey - Tobias - attitude is based on volume of writing, also that teachers don't think he is a good writer because he doesn't get much on the page. Livia has a positive attitude to writing but is unaware of her lack in ability. There are mixed feelings about what makes them a good writer.
What I was seeing at conference helped me to justify the move towards integrating technology into my practice and what we were doing lined up with conference presentations that I attended. Classrooms working with 1:1 devices was a particular theme.
