Why have students create Jamboard Tutorials:
- This is a student-centered review activity that values student voice and choice.
- Students become important references for each other, which helps them value each other as members of the learning community.
- When students can teach a concept, they know it on a deeper level. This is especially true when they are teaching to an authentic audience- their classmates who really need to know the content for upcoming finals!
How to have students create Jamboard Tutorials:
Step 1: Have students pick a topic and plan their tutorial. We did a jigsaw of the final exam study guides given by college professors and their math teacher.
Step 2: Students Access Jamboard through google drive. My students used their touch screen laptops with a stylus. You can also use a mouse or the actual google jamboard hardware. See their samples below for an idea of what can be done on this platform!
Step 3: Students record tutorials using the free Screencastify Chrome Extension.
Step 4: Students post tutorials on a common google site, padlet, or flipgrid. We used a padlet that I posted on our google classroom.
Step 5: Students use each other's tutorials to prepare for upcoming tests and review important content!
