Check out Google Jamboard, a creative collaboration whiteboard app, which requires a Google account.

Designed to act as a companion to the Google Jamboard display, you can use the Jamboard app on a tablet, mobile device, and/or view on the web.

Although designed to complement the Jamboard display, the app can be used independently.

Download the Google Jamboard app for your device:

android-play-store apple-app-store[1]

Alternatively, Jamboards can be viewed via https://jamboard.google.com/.

The following features are available on your Jamboard app (e.g. on an iPad);

  • Post-it note (also on iPhone)
  • Insert photo from camera roll (also on iPhone)
  • Insert file from google drive (also on iPhone)
  • Draw
  • Handwriting recognition
  • Shapes
  • Eraser

Once you have held your meeting on Jamboard, the results can be Shared as a PDF or the frame can be saved as an image.

Google Jamboard could be a great app for getting students to collaboratively label an image (e.g. Skeleton); students add post-it notes of all the bones they can name, then the tutor adds an image of the skeleton for them to label.
