How to Use Seesaw to Annotate Historical Images

In my previous post I wrote about and shared a video about using Jamboard to annotate historical images. Another way have students annotate historical images is by adding their voice comments to the images. That can be done through the use of Seesaw

In Seesaw students can upload images then draw and type on the image. Additionally, they can record themselves talking about the image while simultaneously drawing on the image. All of those things are demonstrated in this short video



Applications for Education
Using Seesaw to annotate historical images is a good way for elementary school and middle school students to share their thoughts and ask questions about what they see in historical images that you share with them. I like the option for students to record voice notes because it gives them more space to explain their ideas than if they only write notes next to or on the image.
