What is Google Jamboard?
Quick Summary: As part of the Google Suite, Jamboard is a digital whiteboard that allows for real-time collaboration and brainstorming anytime, anywhere. It allows for the similar whiteboard-style experience that occurs in the classroom, but does not require students to be located in the same physical space (aka it’s great for distance learning).
How do I use Google Jamboard?

What Jamboard activities can I try with students?
In the video above, I mention a couple of ideas of ways you can use Jamboard with your students, but based on feedback from teachers who loved this tutorial, I decided to make a more in-depth video with some specific examples. I’m all about action, so check out the video below for Google Jamboard activities you can try with your students tomorrow.
