Welcome to my blog! I'm Karen Belt, a teacher and leader of digital learning, working at Lynmore Primary School in Rotorua, New Zealand. I'm teaching in a Year 2 class using iPads to engage and motivate learners and improve student achievement. This blog documents my teaching journey and my learning processes with iPads in the classroom. I've proud of having been a member of the inaugural Manaiakalani Digital Teaching Academy(MDTA) program and last year a Spark Manaiakalani Innovative Teacher (MIT) and Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir teacher.

Seesaw Ambassador

After using Seesaw for a year and loving the features, I'm delighted to now be a Seesaw Ambassador.

Students in my classroom have loved being able to share their learning throughout the year with their parents and whanau, who in turn have provided valuable and authentic feedback to their children.  

Some of the great benefits I've enjoyed using Seesaw this year include:
  • Students being able to share and showcase a variety of learning activities - videos, images, text
  • Students seeing (and hearing) the feedback that parents are providing
  • Creating activities for the class or small groups to complete
  • Students being able to use their voice to record explanations about the artefacts they are uploading
  • Reviewing a students journal and quickly seeing their progress over the year
I'm looking forward to continuing using Seesaw next year, and exploring the activities feature in more detail.
