FigJam for Schools Intro Webinar

I recently had the pleasure to host a webinar on FigJam for Schools.

As you have probably heard by now, Google has announced that they are shutting down Jamboard by the end of 2024. Thankfully Figma has partnered with Google to provide their tools absolutely free to educators and students.

One of their tools is FigJam which is an advanced collaborative whiteboarding tool with features including stamps, emotes, stickies, shapes, connectors, drawing tools, plugins, interactive widgets, and much more.

To help you get started with FigJam, and get the most out of it, I hosted a webinar with David Curran, a former teacher who has recently joined the Figma for Edu team. This was an introductory webinar to cover all of the basics of using FigJam in your school.

We will also be hosting a follow-up webinar on October 10th to go deeper into the tool and answer questions we did not get to in this first webinar.

See below for a recording of the webinar, resources from the session, and details on the advanced webinar coming up.
