Working on Report Cards or Portfolios?

As an elementary teacher, I just found out about Seesaw. This is an app for iPads where students can take a picture of their work and draw, write, explain or videotape to show their process or justify their thinking. It organizes the work in a folder for each student, and by date uploaded. I can invite parents' to have access to uploaded items in real time. We are recording our work in all subject areas, including Math journal pages. It would be just as useful in Middle School, or High School to improve home/school communication, and organize student work for reviewing at conferences. Papers can't get lost on the way home, and it is secure, so that parents will only see their own child's work. 

If you are interested, I suggest you explore this app. I'm so excited that I won't need to spend money on binders, time on organizing, or muscles on carrying everything home to do report cards. Saving time, money and working smarter is on all of our lists.
