Interactive Jamboard Activity

Interactive Jamboard Activity
California State University, San Bernardino
Brittany Bloodhart, Instructor from CSU San Bernardino, developed an engaging interactive activity leveraging Jamboard. Instead of assigning students the individual task of generating stereotypes and expectations about gender, they now have the opportunity to explore their own assumptions by observing their peers' contributions on Jamboard. Through the use of sticky notes within a collaborative space, Jamboard allow students to actively participate by moving the concepts to different areas of the "map" (or board) based on their agreement with other students. This creates another interactive element, where students can debate about the placement of ideas, encouraging students to debate on a discussion board and assess whether each concept aligns with their collective understanding. This approach enhances student engagement and promotes active learning.

Assignment Information Video Production using Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools
California State University, Channel Islands
Ryan Murphy, Assistant Professor of Business Communication at California State University Channel Islands, created an assignment information video using HeyGen (an AI avatar video creation tool) and ChatGPT.
