INTRODUCTION TO JAMBOARD

Your Collaborative Digital Workspace

+info

Introduction to Jamboard

Jamboard is a digital collaboration space available for free with any Google account! This tool allows multiple users to share sticky notes, images, and drawings, much like on a physical dry-erase board.

Introduction to Jamboard

In 2020, driven by the shift to online and remote instruction necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, librarians at the University of Dayton began using Jamboard to replicate the interactive nature of our in-person information literacy instruction sessions. In doing so, we discovered levels of interaction with our students we'd struggled to achieve in the past!

HOW IT WORKS

Getting started with your own Jamboard

How It Works

In this video, Hector demonstrates how to get started with Jamboard, add items to the blank canvas, and share your board with colleagues, students, or the general public!

IN THE CLASSROOM

One demo example of a Jamboard

IN THE CLASSROOM

+info

Moving from theory to practice, students in an English composition class were asked to share their topic at the start of class, then expand on that topic in keyword brainstorming, and ultimately find relevant articles on their subject.

In the Classroom - Technical Considerations

Do you need a Google account to access?

You need a Google account to create and share. However, you do not need an account to contribute.

The limit per session is 50 individuals and 20 slides

Are there any limitations on the number of participants or slides?

Do you need a phyicsal Jamboard to operate?

No, but you can broadcast to these devices if you have access to one. For more information, click here.

BEST PRACTICES

How to make Jamboard work in your classroom.

BEST PRACTICES

Build the Jamboard ahead of time, populated by gathering student topics from their regular professor.

Return to the Jamboard throughout class to build upon earlier searches and reinforce technical skills.

Establish participation expectations by having students "claim" their topic on the Jamboard at the start of class.

Distribute the link to students after class so they have a digital artifact of their work they can refer to later!

ACRL FRAMEWORK

Using Jamboard to address information literacy.

In this exercise, students were encouraged to ask increasingly complex questions related to their topic. The Jamboard helped them collect and organize information as they found it, allowing for continued and deeper searching.

Research as Inquiry

Searching as Strategic Exploration

The instruction session emphasized a nonlinear searching method, encouraging students to take inspiration from the process. The Jamboard facilitated collaboration, allowing students to expand upon their classmates findings and add additional search strategies along the way.

Due to the open-ended nature of Jamboard, this exercise can be expanded to emphasize other frames as well! Here are a few ideas.

ACRL Framework for Information LIteracy

Using sticky notes, the students can provide indicators of authority for the sources they find. Can they tell if a source is scholarly?

Authority is Constructed and Contextual

Starting with a journal article, have the students explore citations to find commonalities and other relevant sources for their topic.

Scholarship as Conversation

After completing their research assignment, provide the opportunity for them to reflect on the searching exercises. How did the process of searching influence their creative process?

THINGS TO CONSIDER

Surprises, suggestions, and so on!

Things to Consider - Surprises!

By simplifying and anonymizing participation, more students were comfortable engaging with the activity. There was also a perceived increase in active participation (volunteering to speak, turning on cameras, etc.) in classes using Jamboard.

Students took ownership in organizing the information, sorting similar topics by color, stacking synonyms together, and annotating their peers' found sources.

With classroom instructors monitoring the Jamboard, they were able to provide real-time feedback and suggestions to their students, and some have even been eager to participate!

Things to Consider - Next Steps

Jamboard is a useful tool in all sorts of classrooms, meetings, and informal collaborative settings:

Use it in small groups to brainstorm synchronously or asynchronously.Distribute a public link for an informal anonymous poll using sticky notes.Upload images and utilize the shapes tool to create complex slides for presentations.Spice up your existing instruction session with an instant collaboration space.
