Teaching with Google Jamboard Course from Otis for Educators

Google Jamboard Jams are free web-based files that lives in your Google Drive. If you are not already using Google Jamboard, you will want to add this to your teaching toolbox.  Start using it at the beginning of the school year, consistently, and you and your students will think of many ways to use it to collaborate!

Jamboard Help/Ideas

No worries if you haven’t used this free whiteboard that comes with your G Suite! Alice Keeler will show you the basics, including activities you can implement immediately, and even give you some thinking points regarding pedagogy. You may not have be able to attend the LIVE course on August 24th at 3pm EST, but the great thing about these Otis webinars is that once you sign up, you will have access to the replays. You can also answer some questions at the end of the webinar to receive a certificate of completion.

Teaching with Google Jamboard

I am adamant that Jamboard is not a replacement for paper. I LOVE PAPER! If you want a paper task, no shame in using paper! Jamboard is a collaboration tool.

How can I have my students think through processes and collaborate more?
