Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Through this presentation participants will learn how to utilize Google Jamboard as an effective and collaborative digital learning tool. They will receive ideas as to how they may encourage and empower elementary students to engage in collaborative work during instruction. Participants will learn how to incorporate Jamboard into various different subjects and lessons to provide and encourage student collaboration and digital communication. A variety of activities that bring students to high levels of critical thinking, creativity and innovation to support, engage, and empower their learning will also be shared as examples of ways that Google Jamboard can assist students’ learning in an innovative way.

Virtual collaboration and communication became necessary due to remote learning during COVID19. Collaboration and communication in the classroom has proven to be a method of spurring on student growth and understanding over time so it was important to find a way for students to do that virtually. Through research and experience, it is evident that valuable learning and growth occur when students are working together and can receive guidance or coaching along the way. During this presentation an elementary educator will share various digital learning activities from lessons in a variety of subject areas that can be utilized by students to investigate standards, display their understanding of standards, or practice applying that understanding both independently and collaboratively. The proposed presentation supports ISTE standards:
Facilitator: Educators facilitate learning with technology to support student achievement of the ISTE Standards for Students.
6b: Manage the use of technology and student learning strategies in digital platforms, virtual environments, hands-on makerspaces or in the field.

Creative Communicator: Students communicate clearly and express themselves creatively for a variety of purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media appropriate to their goals.
6c: Students communicate complex ideas clearly and effectively by creating or using a variety of digital objects such as visualizations, models or simulations.
