Using Jamboard for Student Engagement & Assessment

Jamboard is an app in the Google suite of apps.  It is a collaborative workspace in the form of boards (think chart paper in digital form), which may be composed of multiple frames (similar to slides).  Creators and participants may post sticky-notes, write text, import images, draw, and erase when provided the link to the Jamboard with which you wish for them to work.  Jamboards are just one of many online tools that could be used to facilitate collaboration, discourse, problem-solving, or active learning.  It can also be an excellent tool for formative assessment.
