Join us for the Seesaw Summer Academy hosted by Vita-Learn, where you’ll have the opportunity to take part in differentiated group sessions tailored to your Seesaw skill level. Whether you’re a beginner looking to get started with Seesaw, or an advanced user wanting to explore new features and capabilities, we’ve got you covered. During the morning sessions, you’ll learn how to create and assign activities, bring resources into Seesaw, and use digital portfolios for assessment. In the afternoon, bring your curricular materials and join our Seesaw experts for collaborative work sessions, where you can share ideas and get hands-on assistance with implementation. With natural pausing points for demo, exploration, work, and questions built into each session, you’ll leave feeling confident and empowered to incorporate Seesaw into your instructional routines. Don’t miss this chance to take your Seesaw skills to the next level!

$270 for non-members. $20 discount for Vita-Learn members.
Please use the form below to register for the Seesaw Summer Academy. Please note, we are using a new partner to provide online payment and registration for this event, Zeffy. Zeffy provides Vita-Learn with credit card processing services at no cost, saving Vita-Learn the standard 2.9%+$0.30 per transaction (and a $5.50 per registration fee we usually pay to CVent). These savings could add up to over $5000 in savings for Vita-Learn!
To do so, Zeffy includes an donation option in the registration form. You can choose to add a donation to your registration fee that will support Zeffy’s mission of providing fee-free credit card transactions for non-profit organizations, or you may simple change the donation to “Other” and enter “0“. That’s up to you! Additionally, you will see an option to donate to Vita-Learn as part of your registration. That too is completely optional.
If you are a Vita-Learn member, make sure to login first, and visit the members page to see the coupon code that you can enter to save $20 off of this registration. If you are not a member, those $20 will cover your annual dues so that you can receive discounts to future Vita-Learn events.
If you wish to pay by purchase order/check, in the checkout, enter INVOICE (case sensitive!) into the coupon field to zero out the balance. Vita-Learn will send you an invoice separately to the email you enter in the registration. We’ll look up to see if you are a member and apply the $20 discount accordingly before we invoice. Please make sure to register using the same email address that is associated to your Vita-Learn account!
If for some reason you must cancel your registration, please contact Jeff Mao, firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible. Cancellations made no later than July 13, 2023 will be issued a full refund. Cancellations made after July 14, 2023 will be issued a 50% refund.
