“Naviance has been, by far, the best ed tech for our student-centered transition. I can journal with a student on his/her progress, I can work with them to plan on the platform, I can have private meetings, and also communicate with other stakeholders (parents, teachers, administrators).”

Seesaw

Seesaw is a digital portfolio tool to support students in documenting and sharing their progress over the course of their academic careers. Students can “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links.

Seesaw can give educators, counselors, and school leaders a view of what a student is learning across classes. Counselors can use SeeSaw to see a fuller picture of what the student is learning, leverage this tool to start conversations with the student about progress, and access this information to help students make postsecondary choices. Seesaw provides training materials for all types of school staff via their Seesaw for Schools Success Plan.

Noted communication and collaboration features:
  • Opportunity for students to share and demonstrate learning to the school community and beyond.
  • Ability for parents to have greater access to student work.
  • Downloadable portfolios of student work for reviewing and sharing.
  • Students can blog or journal on the platform.
