Jamboard on the 10 Minute Teacher podcast

I am honored to share that I was a guest on the 10 Minute Teacher Podcast with Vicki Davis. We revisited a topic we spoke about in 2018: Google Jamboard.

We spoke about instructional uses for Jamboard in the classroom. I also shared relatively recent updates to Jamboard including:

The episode was recorded in November 2020. Since then, Google has announced that Jamboard Jams can now have custom backgrounds.

  1. Hi. Thank you for sharing. Although I feel like Google image Is a great addition to the updated Jambord my only concern is on the images that can be viewed. For example when I typed in the word woman, there were in my opinion some inappropriate photos. Is this blocked when a student views images?


    1. Hi Belle, thank you for your question. Google Image search in Jamboard is safe search and Creative Commons. I just searched “woman” in it when signed in to a district account. I did not notice any inappropriate images.
