    Mission and Values

    At Seesaw, our mission is to create an environment where students can be their best.

    For us, this means:

    • Empowering students to take ownership of their learning, and to reflect on their progress over time.
    • Giving students creative tools to demonstrate what they know in the way that works best for them.
    • Inspiring students to try their best by providing a real audience for their work in the classroom and beyond.
    • Creating a meaningful, ongoing conversation between teachers and parents so that parents can become more engaged with their child’s learning.
    • Building technology that makes teachers lives simpler and lets them focus on what they do best.

    Impact

    We’re just at the beginning of this journey, but already we’re seeing tremendous impact. Seesaw is used in over 200,000 classrooms across more than 25,000 schools -- including 1 in 4 schools in the US.

    Product

    Our product is a student driven digital portfolio that empowers students of any age to independently document what they are learning at school.

    Students capture learning with photos and videos of their work, or by adding digital creations. Everything gets organized in one place and is accessible to teachers from any device.

    Student work can be shared with classmates, parents, or published to a class blog. Seesaw gives students an audience for their work beyond the classroom and offers parents a personalized window into their child's learning.

    Apple says Seesaw is "Perfect for Every Classroom". Graphite / Common Sense Media named Seesaw one of the top 10 Best Learning Apps of 2015, as did the American Association of School Librarians.
