Whiteboard Tools for Google Hangouts Meet

When you are in a video conference like Google Hangouts Meet, a valuable tool to have is a digital interactive whiteboard. You can use this to give instruction, like a math teacher working out a problem, or it can be collaborative where everyone in the meeting is working together to brainstorm or design or complete an interactive activity.

Unfortunately Google Meet does not have a built-in whiteboard tool. However, there are many excellent whiteboard tools that can be used with Google Meet. For example, two great Google tools that can be use as digital whiteboard in Meet are Google's Chrome Canvas and Google Jamboard.

To show how to use these tools, and specifically how to use them inside of a Google Meet for teaching as well as collaborating with students, I recorded a short 8-minute video. See below for the video and related resource links.
