Possibly, one of my favorite tools to engage students, involve and connect parents and organize this digital life! In Seesaw students can share work, use creative tools and capture learning (from home or school!) Parents love Seesaw to see what their child is working on and teacher feedback. Come join the sharing fun! A GREAT tool for digital learning and sharing. Geared to K-5, but tool is applicable any grade.
With this class, we will practice making activities, attaching to news, explore the many ways that Seesaw can be used as a super tool to connect and engage. This session is meant for educators who have basic knowledge of Seesaw and its functions. We will learn how to provide powerful feedback to students and utilize the power to connect with

This training will help participatns understand the importance of self-awareness and the impact they themselves can have when working with individuals who have experiences taurma. This session will encourage participants to reflect on their ability to be vlunerable, to explore their own educational experiences, and to develop their understanding of their role within the healing relationship. The training will also help participants understand the impact of stress and trauma on an individual, including how work with individuals who have experience trauma can impact them. Several strategies will be reviewed to aid in decreasing the effects of stress and trauma on the physical, psychological, and emotional impact.
Seesaw is a tool to reach students, families and help teachers engage in a digital playground. Come explore more apps that “Smash” with Seesaw and let student and teacher creativity soar. This session is geared around how to include other apps, programs and power into the Seesaw platform – but will also cover apps, programs and websites that
could be used without Seesaw. App-smashing: the art of using different apps to meet the needs of the student – finding and using apps that compliment each other.
Stress is not inherently bad. The dose, type, and time in which we experience stress can dictate its impact on our bodies and brains. In this session, we will discuss what types of stress have been experienced during COVID-19 and what that means for us and our students moving forward.
