Try out our new Google Jamboard!

Academic Technology has recently acquired a Google Jamboard that faculty are welcome to try with students. A Jamboard is basically a giant touchscreen whiteboard on wheels. Jamboard’s main function is collaborative brainstorming. The built-in app throws together handwriting recognition, shape recognition, freeform sketching, photos, clippings and group-created post-it-style ideas into a live workspace.

The Jamboard app can be simultaneously used by students on their laptops or phones so everyone in class can contribute even if they aren’t standing at the board. And since it’s part of G Suite, all files are saved to Drive and can be shared with collaborators.

Google offered the Jamboard to Endicott for a very low price (less than 20% of the retail cost) because it wants to see how higher ed faculty use the new device in order to develop some case studies. So please contact Hedrick at hellis@endicott.edu to schedule a quick demo and to see if you might want to try it with your students.
