Google and Figma announced at The Anywhere School that Figma was coming to EDU Chromebooks for free. As a Jamboard fan, I was intrigued by Figma’s collaborative whiteboard, FigJam, which is like Jamboard but with so many “if you can dream it, you can do it” features.
I am excited to announce that I have partnered with Figma to produce videos with back-to-school FigJam tips teachers can use to make the most of this impressive tool with students. I will release a new video every weekday from today August 2 through August 15. Watch these videos and six more I made in June on this YouTube playlist:
UPDATE: I have now partnered with Figma to make 11 more videos in September 2022. The playlist is now up to 27 videos!
To be clear: Figma sponsors these videos but all opinions are my own. Figma compensated me to produce the ten videos that will publish in August.
