Jamboard Ideas and Activities for Teachers

Blog Posts, Distance Learning, Math

Teachers and students are experimenting with TONS of websites, platforms, games and apps during this season of distance learning. Throughout all of this, one platform seems to be finding its way to the top of many teachers’ favorite tech tool lists. What is this popular tool? Google’s Jamboard! Check out the ideas below to start using this tool in your classroom.

Use Jamboard to write on documents

One easy way to insert a worksheet into Jamboard is to save it as an image or take a screenshot. You can then share it out to your students through seesaw or google classroom (or your desired online platform). Below is a page from our 2nd Grade Spiral Math! The students can choose to use the pen/marker tool, voice to text OR use the sticky note feature to provide their answers.

The possibilities are ENDLESS of what teachers could assign to their students in this way!

Use Jamboard to create interactive assignments

In Jamboard you can create movable objects and sticky notes. (Any time students can move objects around on the screen they are engaged!) Check out the video example below using our Numberless Word Problems resource. Check out this resource below.

Use Jamboard for student responses

Teachers can pose a question of the day and have students answer it using sticky notes, google images or the pen tool. A new question each day will be something the students look forward to.

Jamboard Art

Students can use Jamboard for digital art projects! They can simply draw on it using the pen tool, or they can create a collage using google images and sticky notes. Check out the real student example below.

    This is great!
    Is there a way to control what images students enter into the jamboard?
