Create QR Codes for Any Item in a Seesaw Digital Portfolio

Seesaw is a fantastic tool for creating digital portfolios and blogs with your students. With the Seesaw mobile apps and web app students can upload digital artifacts as well as save pictures of physical work they've done. Once uploaded to their digital portfolios students can annotate items with text, drawings, and voice comments.

Portfolios that students create in Seesaw can be shared with teachers, peers, and parents. Recently, Seesaw added a new option for sharing portfolio artifacts. Students can now share individual portfolio items by printing items or by generating QR codes for individual items. To generate a QR code tap the "..." button in the bottom-right corner of the screen and then select "print" or "get item QR code."

Applications for Education
As the end of the school year approaches you may be preparing your students to share examples of their best work during a spring open house event. (Those were always my favorite nights in elementary school). If your students have been using SeeSaw to create portfolios, the new individual item printing and QR code option could provide a convenient way for students to share their examples of their best work.
