Canvas vs SeeSaw

My lower school admin is literally trying to decide between SeeSaw and Canvas for K-2 Specialists tonight. They've decided on Canvas for 3-5 (homeroom teachers and Specialists). It seems like we should all be on Canvas. HELP. I've told them I'll dive into the "message boards" tonight to see what experienced teachers have to say about SeeSaw and Canvas for the young student's classroom. Pros? Cons? I've just learned that they can be used together. Please help.



We have Specialist teachers for all lower school students. Any idea how SeeSaw works with multiple teachers needing their own spaces when in remote learning?

Parents I know with multiple kids in the same school have complained about having to learn more than one platform to help their kids with remote learning.

You can link to SeeSaw within Canvas.

That is a work around we are doing since the district is requiring everyone to use the canvas platform.

During summer school, I have my Canvas class set up only with my contact info and the link to SeeSaw.

I used SeeSaw during remote learning. I teach special ed.

From what I understand, K-2 used SeeSaw a lot because the students had iPads and SeeSaw was something they had used during the school year.

Special ed also found it was easier for parents to get into and help with SeeSaw.

In my district K-2 and self-contained special ed use iPads. Were are not 1:1 per se, but generally there enough to go around.

We have both. K-2 doesn’t tend to use Canvas much because they are not 1 to 1. Canvas is good for turning in assignments like documents, slideshows, taking quizzes etc.

I feel that seesaw is way easier to set up and use than canvas. I teach K.
