Google Jamboard

Google Jamboard is a digital whiteboard that allows students to collaborate real-time in a shared platform.

Through Jamboard, students can draw, problem-solve, and post ideas synchronously. Items posted in a Jamboard—referred to as “Jams”—are saved directly to Google Drive or exported as PDFs, making them easy to share online. Students can also create multiple frames in one Jam to organize topics or facilitate group activities.

  2. Sign in to a Google account.

  3. View recent Jams associated with the Google account or select the New Jam button (+ icon) to create a new Jam.
