3 Interactive Websites to use After Jamboard

1/29/20242 min read

1. Figma's Figjam: Figjam has almost endless posibilites. From using it as a simple interactive whiteboard to using one of the many games and features to create a whole experience, there is definitely something for everyone. It also has many features to make it quick and easy to create charts, flowmaps, and various activities for the classroom. It allows up to 200 editor and 500 collaborators, so no one will be left out. With the paid plans you even have more control with the ability to see history and who has done what.

2. Miro: Miro is the simplest of the interactive whiteboard options. Sticking to the basics with shapes, lines, and stickies being the bulk of what you can do with it. It does allow for multiple people to work on the same page at one time and has fun addition like voting to spice it up. They also have many templates ready to be used at a moments notice. This site would be wonderful to use in a intermediate classroom while the students begin learning how to use these types of tools correctly, or by the teacher in a primary classroom as a simple visual organization tool.

3. Lucidspark: Lucidspark seems to be the furthest along in terms of integration with google. It already has the ability to create assignments and post them directly to google classroom as well as turning in assignments. Furthermore you can even add your lucid documents to any google app. As a student or teacher, when you sign up using your school email you will have access to the education versions of this site where you will be able to have unlimited boards (however you are limited to only 3 active boards at one time)It also has many pre-made template to make creating and designing lessons a breeze for both a teach and a student.

Each of these sites have power features that would be useful in the classroom no matter how you use them. However, I do wish that these site would integrate restoring history in their education due to its imperative use in the classroom, though this is something you can access with a paid version.

Below I have added some other sites that do virtually the same thing but were not promoted by google on the email that stated they were closing down Jamboard and urge you to also check those out.

This year Google is closing the internet doors on their version of an interactive whiteboard, Jamboard. This was one of my favored classroom tools for its simplicity and accessibility for students of all ages. But now, what are we left to use? In this post I am going to talk about alternatives to the Google Jamboard Site to help bridge the gap that will be left.
