Seesaw is one of our favourite digital portfolio tool/app that we have covered in numerous posts in the past. A few days ago, Seesaw launched a number of interesting updates that we have just discovered through a buried email in our ‘pregnant’ inbox. The main updates are :
1- Translation into 50+ languages for families & teachers! Tap “See Translation” under notes, captions, & comments to instantly translate Seesaw content into your preferred language. Making Seesaw accessible to all families is a priority!
2- Text labels annotation tool so students can add text labels onto any photo, drawing, drawing+voice video to better show their learning.
3- Add Text Labels to Any Photo, Drawing or Drawing Video on iOS: Annotate any photo, drawing or drawing+voice video with customizable text labels. Choose from 8 preset styles or customize completely.
And as for the Computer Science Education week, Seesaw has this collection of resources for teachers and students:
- Webinars and Live Q&A with the Seesaw Team
- Interactive Seesaw Coding Class chock full of resources
- Printable, offline “design thinking” exercises.
