 Pro Tip


If you are sharing a laptop or computer, then we recommend that you "assign" one child to each web browser so they do not have to sign out.

For example, if you have three children:

  • Child 1 - Login into Seesaw using Google Chrome
  • Child 2 - Login into Seesaw using Firefox
  • Child 3 - Login into Seesaw using Safari (Apple) or Edge (Microsoft)

If you are sharing a tablet/smartphone, then students will need to Sign Out of the Seesaw Class app before the other student can use it.
