When I first started learning about "blended learning," it sounded like something only teachers of older students could use. So much of the premise is letting students work independently and at their own pace, and I knew this sounded like the dream way to run a classroom because of the possibilities with differentiation.

However, I was struggling with figuring out how I could get kindergartners rotating independently and collaborating on differentiated tasks. I do have an aide, but there still wasn't going to be enough adults to go around! I was thinking there was no way I'd be able to truly use blended learning in my kindergarten class.


Then, I was shown the Seesaw app. "It's a digital portfolio where students take charge and are able to explain their learning," I was told. Intrigued, I downloaded it and began to play around. After watching tutorial videos, learning how to upload work, and seeing how simple it would be for my kids to use, I was sold. This was how I was going to be able to make blended learning work! Now, I'm a full-on Seesaw enthusiast and want to share my love for this tool with you.
