Seesaw’s Digital Whiteboard

Posted on

Some teachers are wanting to use their new touch screen laptops and the stylus. I have been researching various digital whiteboard applications, testing them, and noting the features each one has. Teachers can create screencast videos of their lessons using a digital whiteboard to house the content of their lesson. Teachers can then deliver their lessons to their students via the LMS they are using. Students can then access the lesson at their convenience.

Seesaw Digital Whiteboard Features

In my school district, Seesaw is approved to be used by students k-2. Third-12th grade teachers can not use Seesaw with their students. The following video tutorial demonstrates how to use the digital whiteboard in Seesaw to create screen cast videos. Seesaw has some attractive features, you can import backgrounds, add text,add images, and create movable/drag-able images and graphics.

Google Meet Audio Solution

Posted on

Teachers and students are not hearing the audio when they play videos during a live Google Meet meeting. I recomend you provide students with the video prior to your meeting. Let them watch the video before your Google Meet meeting and then discuss the video during the meeting.

If you absolutely need to play a video during a Google Meet meeting, these two videos will show you how you can play and hear a video during a Google Meet meeting. Contact me or your area DLCs if you need additional support. Solution #2 is what you should try first if you are using a Windows computer.
