Jamboard and Sketchnotes

Google’s Jamboard is a new core app that your admin can turn on for you to have access to. What is Jamboard? Think Google Doc/Google Slides, but you can draw on it, like a collaborative white board you can share with your students.

This works really well with Ipads and touch-screen chromebooks, there are also limited functions for your mobile device. Now that Sketchnotes are becoming really popular, especially since sketchnotes allow you to be creative and think outside of the box. To learn more about sketchnoting check out Syliva’s website and tutorials.










So what does Jamboard look like and how does it work? Check out this slide deck for the setup and what are the important components of the application.

There are so many possibilities using this collaborative app in schools! Currently we are testing it out at our elementary schools and plan to allow it at all schools next fall. To see support and updates with Jamboard visit these sites:
