Preparing Your Environment
Before using Jamboard and Google Meet in your school or district, make sure both apps are enabled for use by your Google Administrator:
When students are interacting on a Jam (i.e. each student typing on a sticky note), do the sticky notes start piling up on each other, or are they only seeing their own sticky note while typing?
They do pile up, so you may need to tell students to move them after they post.
