See Saw Portfolio

See Saw Portfolio Application builds a comprehensive record of student learning without dragging home and saving ever glitter project, cutting sample, and photographs. This application allows the Preschool teachers the ability to submit videos, photographs, work samples, and anecdotes that support the Iowa Early Learning Standards. As the children progress through the standards and objectives, parents can keep up to date on what the children are working on in the classroom. The portfolios follow the students for their entire year and is also used as an assessment tool during conferences.

See Saw allows students the ability “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. For more information about the See Saw Portfolio click here.
