Small Group Activity using Jamboard

Exemplar thumbnail


Mark Gondree, an Instructor at Sonoma State University, developed a Google Jamboard activity to facilitate small-group collaboration. In this activity, student teams analyze small snippets of code featuring ARM assembly, to first recognize function prologues/epilogues, then analyze possible deficiencies (missing things), then suggest improvements (removing things that are strictly unneeded), and finally share-out. The code snippets are added as background images, making the text immune from accidental erasure or modification during the activity.
