Use Jamboard as you would any whiteboard app. Teachers can demonstrate on the Jamboard whiteboards and share them with students for collaborative whole-class discussions. Students can work in groups using Jamboard, collaborating in real time with drawings, images, and text. Students can use Jamboard as a presentation tool, too. The flexibility of the app and the integration with Google Drive make Jamboard a tool that groups can use throughout a project -- from brainstorming and planning to presentation.Continue reading Show less
Google Jamboards are physical interactive whiteboards for front-of-the-class use, but the Jamboard app puts a whiteboard on any tablet in a student's hand. Students or teachers can create Jamboards, share them, and collaborate on them. For classes with the physical whiteboard, the creations could be broadcast onto the big Jamboard, but that's not necessary at all with the app. Jamboards can be saved as image files or PDFs. Rather than requiring endless scrolling, boards can have multiple pages, more like a slideshow.
Since Jamboard can be used many ways, it can enhance learning in a variety of situations and in different content areas. It can be used for teacher-led lessons, collaborative class discussions, small group projects and presentations, and individual planning and organization. This versatility, along with the ease of integration into the Google platform, make this a tool that many Google educators will want to implement and students will enjoy using.
