What is Google Jamboard?
Google Jamboard is an interactive digital whiteboard that allows users to create and edit content independently or in collaboration with others. Users can write and draw, search Google and insert images or webpages, and drag and resize text and images. Image recognition technology converts a sketch into a polished image. Users can also share Jams with others for their review and can be printed out as PDFs.
