Teacher questions that may help you too!

QUESTION

“Hi Lauren,

Is there an app (like Google docs) that allows a student and teacher to collaborate on a whiteboard together?  Or that allows a teacher to write on a photo of student work while they watch?  I’m trying to think of how I can view student work and help them on a math problem while still maintaining distance.

Thanks,

8th Grade Math Teacher”

ANSWER

“Hi _____________

Have you ever heard of your used Google’s “Jamboard”? It is a part of Google’s Education Suite and it sounds like it could help with what you are searching for!

Think shared Google Doc, but whiteboard! You have the same sharing mechanisms as you do with other Google Docs but you can have one, two, three, or however many students on the board watching someone write, or adding to the writing as well.

In terms of collaboration practices there are other tools out there like the premium shared Explain Everything options, but I feel like Jamboard is simple and straight forward!
