Strengthening learning partnerships with whanau via digital learning journals

We are interested in how Seesaw, a ‘student driven digital portfolio’, can help increase whanau engagement and give our Year 1-3 students at Park Estate School an authentic audience for their learning.

Seesaw is a digital tool students, teachers and whanau can use to document and share learning, talk about learning and identify the next steps in learning.

A priority for our school is strengthening connections with whanau to support acceleration of our students’ learning.  By sharing learning via Seesaw we hope to further engage parents, students and teachers in learning conversations. By being actively involved in their child’s digital learning journal, parents can gain understanding and ‘real-time knowledge’ of where their child is at and what the next steps are in their learning journey.
