    How are you using Seesaw in your school?
    23 November
    Public discussion Created by Nicki Tempero

    Many teachers are asking about how schools, teachers and teams are implementing Seesaw into their programmes. How are you integrating Seesaw into your programme and what tips and tricks have you got to share?

    Hi Viv

    thanks for joining in... 

    I completely agree that the teaching and modelling is so important when blogging to encourage parents and whanau to join in. Its generally easy to get verbal feedback from parents, the hard part is encouraging them to write a comment on the posts. Taking away the barriers is a start.

    Linda Yollis blogs were my go to place for blogging info and ideas when I was blogging with my class, clever person !

          There's some great sharing here thank you all. You might also like to share the following resource with your friends and colleagues:

            I've been stalking in the discussion and playing catch up.  The ponderings around commenting, and quality are pretty similar to blog comments.

            I found Silva Tolisano's suggestions really valuable when I was starting student's blogging. http://langwitches.org/blog/2008/12/25/blogging-lesson-plan-commenting/

            Teaching/modelling in the case of parents and whānau is important and sharing a list is a great idea Nicki.  Linda Yollis ( American teacher) had her students create a video on how to comment.  Anyone seen anything like this here?  http://yollisclassblog.blogspot.co.nz/2010/10/how-to-compose-quality-comment.html

                Hi Alwyn 

                I love your poetry idea- I scanned the code and it worked too- very cool. I am giving a talk to some teachers this week and wondered if I might please share the poetry idea and image with them?

                  A teacher in America asked for teacher across the world to create these non fiction task cards. I think about 50 different teachers participated and we have this fantastic resource for our classroom. Can share task cards if you are interested. This was a fun activity to participate in as a teacher.

                    Hi Alannah 

                    I created these by using the QR code function in Seesaw and the students just scan them using the camera function and it takes them to the poem in Seesaw. You can scan code and listen. I have a whole set made up. The students made them in a lesson when we were learning about Seesaw.

                      Hi Alwyn

                      Love the idea!  So important to share with the other students and Im sure the parents love it as well. Do you have other classes in your school using Seesaw?

                        This a great idea Alwyn

                        I was wondering how the children then access the QR code of the reading of the poem.

                        Is it a wall display or do you have the poems on cards.

                        I would love  photo of how you share the QR codes.

                          I love using seesaw. I have used word family poems. The students all read different poems and we then create a qr code to go with the poem. This then becomes part of a listening and reading centre in the classroom. Students love hearing themselves and other classmates read poems.
