Digital Whiteboard Options to Replace Google Jamboard
Session 4: 4:00pm-5:00pm (Friday March 01, 2024)
The presentation will cover discussion and demonstration of multiple digital whiteboards for the purpose of comparing their capabilities and sharing lesson ideas for engaging and enhancing the learning experience. Participants who bring their personal laptop or tablet will be able to post on sample whiteboards that model brainstorming, reviewing, planning, and more. Use of common features such as pen tools, sticky notes, textboxes, and images will be shared as well as more advanced features like creating sections, zooming in/out, adding audio, commenting, etc. There will be a greater focus on FigJam, its features, and how to transfer Jamboards. Some keyboard shortcuts will also be included as time saver options. Lastly, a comparative chart will be reviewed as a tool for participants to determine which digital whiteboard might best fit their particular educational needs.
