Students will not need the app to participate on a Jamboard you assign to them.

Using Google Meet for Universal Collaboration
Google Meet (https://meet.google.com/) is available for all staff in Granite School District to use as part of our G Suite For Education accounts. Granite District staff can create a Google Meet with others outside of our district. Google Meet is not open for students, but students can participate in a Google Meet that the teacher has organized.
A Google Hangouts Meet is easy to setup and easy to join. See the information and videos provided for help with getting started.
Below is a list of a few ways Google Meet can be used in the classroom.
