Title: Seesaw, more than just a learning journal. A powerful formative assessment tool to inspire and create lifelong learners

Presenter: Necia Armstrong – Chipping Norton Public School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: This workshop will focus on advanced tools for the Seesaw user including using the Australian curriculum to produce work samples and assessment tasks using syllabus outcomes and drive future lessons. The session will look at creating rich tasks which allow students to demonstrate their understanding of content and concepts. Seesaw Plus and Seesaw For Schools features will be explored and will demonstrate how student achievement and progress can be tracked school wide over a student’s learning journey. The workshop will demonstrate the ease of data collection and innovative classroom practices that can be unlocked from devices and shared as valid evidence. This will be modelled on experiences at Chipping Norton Public School and our journey using Seesaw for Schools across the school, as a valid formative assessment tool.
