Using Jamboard as a Digital Whiteboard (Part I)

Jamboard is a Google product that can be turned on in the G-Suite platform. You can access it at Jamboard on a laptop or desktop computer, but this app is equally usable (maybe more so) on a mobile device.  It works very well for those devices that are touchscreen, with the only parameters being your screen size real estate! If you are going to use this tool on a mobile device you will need to load the appropriate app from Google Play (Android) or the App Store (Apple IOS).

Jamboard is a collaborative whiteboard where people can be invited to work as a group, the work can be shared in the traditional Google product sharing mechanism and permissions available. 

Before you are going to tell your story, it can be helpful to lay it out first. Photographers, Graphic Designers, and Videographers will often "storyboard" out the message they wish to share in the presentation.  Use Jamboard for brainstorming, teamwork (because of the sharing feature), visual storytelling, digital bulletin board, as well as storyboarding presentations.

There is the second part of the two-part tutorial, where I show how to use a mobile device with this app.  Searched the labels to the right, and click on Jamboard to access the other one.
