Higher education in any form is an immersive learning experience. Students are expected to gain critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills, and also be knowledgeable of real world applications like ethics, decision making and teamwork.
Google Jamboard creates a modern, collaborative learning environment for professors and students. The digital, 55” whiteboard makes lectures and coursework interactive and fun!
Often teachers have to present slides on one screen and illustrate their points on a whiteboard separately. Jamboard brings these two together with G Suite integration. Pull any slide presentation from your Google Drive and place it right on the screen. Annotate the slides with Jamboard's writing and drawing tools.
One of the many collaborative tools Jamboard offers is the ability to co-author in real time. While professors are giving lectures and posing questions, using the Jamboard app, students can add notes to the board from the phones or tablets. You can also video conference in guest lecturers through Google Hangouts. These tools together make Jamboard ideal for remote learning.
Liberal arts colleges in Michigan use G Suite and Jamboard to host the same course, at the same time, at three different schools. These tools make interactive videoconferencing seamless and engaging for students. Read this case study here.
