How to Create Whiteboard Videos in Seesaw

Seesaw is my go-to tool for making digital portfolios. I like it because it's a versatile platform that can be used for more than just portfolio creation. You can use it as a blog, use it to share announcements with parents, use it to distribute assignments, and you can use it to create whiteboard videos. In fact, there are a couple of ways that you and your students can create whiteboard videos in Seesaw. Both of those methods are outlined in my new video that is embedded below.

Applications for Education
There are a lot of ways that you might use the whiteboard tool in Seesaw. Here are a few ideas to get started:

  • You can use it to make math instruction videos for your students to watch. 
  • You could upload an image to the whiteboard and use the drawing tools to highlight various parts of the image. That's a good option when explaining a diagram or explaining the presence of different elements in an artwork. 
  • You might also have students use the whiteboard tools to explain and show their work on solving a math problem.
