How Can I Teach with This Tool?

Scribble Together is a collaborative whiteboard tool for the web and iOS. Compared to some other interactive whiteboards, it has a limited number of tools (and options for those tools). That's not necessarily bad, though. The idea is to get in and start sketching and creating quickly and simply, a lot like Jamboard. Users can draw and erase, add text and images, and use a pointer tool. Whiteboards have some basic style options (e.g., a grid or dot-based sheet) and can be strung together in a series and then exported.

Teachers can use Scribble Together Whiteboard in a 1-to-1 classroom for brainstorming or group learning. Teachers can present a problem to solve, an issue to explore, or a discussion question and ask students to add their ideas. Or students can use the board to share ideas in small groups and then report back to the class. Include PDFs or photos of something to explore, and have students mark them up with ideas. Scribble Together Whiteboard could also be a helpful tool for remote learning. Draw out ideas, explain a math problem, underline a text, or highlight some part of an image. There's no audio, video, or recording option, and no embedded camera or linking, so teachers will likely want to use Scribble Together Whiteboard together with a video chatting app for remote learning. Be aware that the live sharing feature is available only with the paid subscription.
