Learning How to Navigate Seesaw, ipads and Apps (Oh My!)

Parents, do you need tech help?

Join 4J educators for a live webinar to get a better understanding of the technology your student is using for distance learning, learn how you can support your student and navigate the parent view of the learning platform – Seesaw for elementary school, along with the Clever sign-on system for accessing other learning apps.

Parents will see a demonstration of the learning management system used for their student’s online classes, learn how to find important information and support their student’s learning, and have an opportunity to ask questions.

Spanish and ASL interpretation will be provided.
