Jamboard Getting to Know You Frayer Eduprotocol

I am a big fan of Eduprotocols and the Frayer Model! I recently came across an excellent Eduprotocol idea that can be completed in less than 10 minutes. 

If you are not familiar with a Frayer Model, it is a four-quadrant diagram that students often use to define vocabulary terms, analyze text, etc. However, have you ever considered using this model as a fun getting to know you activity at the beginning of the year? 

Jamboard Getting to Know You Frayer Model

Here is my interpretation of this Eduprotocol by using Jamboard!

How Does it Work? 

Step 1: Share a copy of the Jamboard with each student through Google Classroom or your learning management system. 

Step 2: Have students interview and use Jamboard to record information about their partners. This should be done in less than 10 minutes. Speed is important when using Eduprotocols. 

Consider having students use the different tools on Jamboard to complete the activity. This is a great way to orient students to using Jamboard for the first time or after a long break. Here are some suggestions:

  • Use the camera on their device to take a picture. 
  • Use the pen tool to write their partner's name. 
  • Use the post-it note feature to write 3 things they are good at. 
  • Use the textbox to share what they are good at and something they would like us to know about them
Step 3: Have students share out! This is a great way to ensure accountability. 

Consider telling students to share a particular quadrant on the Frayer model. For example, "James, can you please share quadrant 2 (something your partner is good at?)?" 


With the beginning of school coming up, this might be a great way to have students get to know their classmates. This is a twist to Eduprotocols by combining technology with a Frayer model; however, you can use this protocol without technology too! That's the beauty of the Frayer model and this protocol.
