Digital Learning Systems: Schoology and Seesaw

Spring Lake Park Schools uses two digital learning systems, Seesaw and Schoology, that support our district's 1:1 Digital Learning Initiative.

With Seesaw, students can share their learning and growth, and families can see learning evidence posted to their child's journal.

With Schoology, students can engage in a variety of activities both at school and from home, such as submitting homework assignments, reviewing grades, participating in interactive discussions, receiving announcements and feedback, taking tests and writing academic blogs. Parents also have login information that allows access to Schoology.

Translate documents

There are several ways you can use your child's iPad to translate documents. You use the Google translate app found in Self Service. You can follow these steps for support:

  • Get Google Translate. If the Google Translate app is not on the iPad, download it from Self Service.
  • Open Google Translate. Find the Google Translate app and open it by tapping its icon.
  • Pick languages. There are two boxes at the top. Tap the first to choose English. Tap the second to choose the language you want the report card translated into.
  • Select camera mode. Below the boxes, tap the option that looks like a camera to use it for translation. Allow camera access. When it asks for camera access, just say "OK" or "Allow."
  • Take a Picture. Hold the iPad over the report card, with text in the frame, and take a picture.
  • Adjust if needed. The words will be highlighted. To change the highlighted part, drag the corners of the box.
  • Translate. After the text is selected, tap "Translate.” The words will change to the language you chose.
  • Read the translation.  If the translation is not right, you might need to fix it or try taking the picture again.
  • Save or share. To keep the translated text or show it to someone, select the option you want.
