Using Jamboard to Brainstorm, Share, and Support Ideas

One way to use Jamboard effectively is to enable users to brainstorm, share, and support ideas as seen on this screenshot. In order to do this, you should first have participants populate various sticky notes (you can even color code by participant and include multiple “posters” if necessary). Once everyone has dropped in their ideas, participants can star, favorite, or otherwise show support for ideas by adding a star, +1, or comment. This two-part activity allows participants to first call out all of their ideas and then review their ideas with others to identify which are the most interesting, actionable, or best-fit for the challenge being faced – similar to what you would do in-person sticky-note brainstorming activity.
