IdeaBoard for Jamboard

If you know me, you know that I LOVE Jamboard.  I am so thankful that my district purchased one for me this year. Although there are a few features I still need to explore, I learn something new every time I use it, and I fall in love with it even more.  

I have covered Jamboard several times on my show, The Suite Talk, with guests like Tom Mullaney, Steven Hope, Kassie Drey, Philip GoodrichAshley Stout, and Emily Bruns.  Its no surprise that my PLN has embraced this new cutting edge app/tool and use it in their schools and classrooms too.  I learn a new tip or trick from these experts by following them on Twitter.    

I wanted to share the love of Jamboard with a broader audience, so I created the Ideaboard for Jamboard resource.  The purpose of my ideaboard is to promote Jamboard, support others who are using, inspire others who are unfamiliar with it, and to learn and share ideas with my audience.

It offers an introduction to Jamboard, ideas on using it in the classroom, and allows you to share your idea too.  Each idea is hyperlinked to a Google Slideshow that includes a learning goal, how it is aligned, examples and templates.

Some of templates were created by Philip Goodrich from BenQ.  If you like any of those templates, you can download them as an image by clicking on  the link in the slide, then inserting it as a background image in your Jam.  The examples posted are taken from my some of experiences in the classroom and during training sessions.
