Fostering Engagement with Jamboard and Zoom : Summer Online Faculty Institute, 2021
Northern Kentucky University
Building classroom community, student engagement, and fostering a sense of classroom community and faculty presence can be challenging in the online environment. In this session, strategies used to engage participants in using Google Jamboard to facilitate rich student engagement in three synchronous courses will be shared: a first-year honors course, online teamwork course, and capstone course. Complex tech tools are not required to build engagement -- in fact, with their low learning threshold, simple online tools reduce tech hesitancy and simplify class planning and implementation, allowing instructors to focus on core content and students to engage in activities with their mind on the content and not on the technology.
