Remote Learning at Port Ellen via Seesaw

Port Ellen has been focussed on digital learning this year.  As a result of a grant award from Education Scotland, all primary school staff on Islay and Jura have received training to improve their digital skills.  Port Ellen and Bowmore started the year by moving our learning journals to an online solution, Seesaw.  Seesaw creates a learning loop between students, teachers, and families.  Students use built-in annotation tools to capture what they know in Seesaw’s digital portfolio.  Families gain a window into their student’s learning and engage with school happenings and teachers can see students thinking and progress.  Over the year all staff from ELCC to P7 have worked on sharing the children’s learning on this online platform which allows the sharing of photos, work and videos with parents, as well as the tracking of learning.  We are very fortunate that we decided on this course of action this year as it has meant we have been able to more smoothly move to a model of remote home learning with parents  following school closures.  We have been very impressed with the response of parents and students so far, who are working hard to keep up with their learning and develop a new routine.  It has been great to be able to interact with students online about their learning and continue to offer feedback and support.  You can find out more about Seesaw here https://web.seesaw.me/
