Google Jamboard is my Jam!

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?

If you are a teacher that is brand new to Google Jamboard, I’d recommend checking out this Jamboard tutorial for beginners that I made. In this video, I walk you through some of the basic features of the tool, including the ways it can be used for brainstorming, sharing ideas, and checking for understanding.

Recent Jamboard Update: You can now upload your own background! Just click “Set background” and select “image.” Enjoy!

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.
