Student collaboration is so important in our Adult ED classrooms, especially in the virtual classroom. Fortunately, there are a lot of amazing free tech options available to help us. One of my newer favorites is Google Jamboard.
If you are not familiar with it, it is "a cloud-based app that enables visual collaboration between users in real-time." (TeachThought Staff, 2021) I see it as a free and easy to use version of Padlet. What I really like is that participants do NOT need a Google account to participate.
Recently, Rachel Riggs led a Coffee Break discussion on "So Many Edtech Tools, So Little Time" where she guided participants through the entire discussion using the Jamboard. I loved how she used it as participants were able to engage with the entire presentation.
I love seeing all of the different ways it can be used! Please share how you use Jamboard in your classes or PD sessions!
