Find and Access Your Jams in Google Drive
Did you know you can create a collaborative space with the Jamboard software? This is a Google tool. A Jam is a document file that you can find in your Google Drive just like any Google Doc, Sheets, or Slides. Jamboard is really intuitive to use.
Go to jamboard.google.com to create a new Jam file or go straight to Google Drive and under “New” click “More” and find “Google Jamboard.”
Know Your Jam
The collaboration space allows you to sketch out your brainstorms, add sticky notes for ideas, and add pictures. Notice Jams have multiple pages. Click the right arrow on the icon in the toolbar center to add another page.
Sharing a Jam
A Jam is a Google Apps document. How you share a Google Doc is how you share a Jam. Click on the blue icon and add the email address of who you want to collaborate with or change the settings to “anyone with the link can edit” if you wish.
Using a Jam in Google Classroom
The exact way you would add a Google Doc to Google Classroom you add a Jam. Click the “Add” button when making an assignment and choose “Google Drive” and you will find your recently created Jam right there. Search for the Jam title if you did not create it recently. You can also filter for Jamboard Jam files by entering type:jam into the search bar.
Link to a Page
Just like in Google Slides and Sheets you can link to a particular page in your Jam. If you are on page 3 of your Jam and copy the link at the top of the screen, that link directs to page 3.
