Jams and Slides, free backgrounds for Jamboard or activities using Slides

Ready to Jam?

Now that we can finally use custom backgrounds in Jamboard, it’s time to take those jams to the next level!

Prepare your slides, add the texts you want to show in your Jambord, and delete the ones you don’t. Once your slide is ready, click on File > Download and choose PNG or JPEG. Now, go to Jamboard and use that slide as background!

If you wish to use Slides, share the link with your students (select anyone with the link can edit) and let them work together on the file, or force a copy for each if you want them to work individually. Remember to lock any “do not touch” content on the master.

ATTENTION GOOGLE SLIDES USERS: PLEASE, DO NOT REQUEST FOR ACCESS. If you are prompted to “Request for access·” (sometimes it happens when you are logged in more than one Google account or when you are logged in a Google for Education account and your IT Admin has blocked the access), you can try again by logging in a personal Gmail account, and signing out of all the other accounts.

The other workaround is for you to download the pptx file, upload it to your Google Drive, and open it as Google Slides.
