The End Of The Chalkboard?
from the going...-going...- dept
It seems that after many years, the ubiquitous chalkboard may finally be losing its place in the modern classroom. It’s being replaced by the “higher tech” solution popular in cubicles worldwide: the whiteboard. Of course, the whiteboard has the potential to do much more, by connecting them to computers (though, that seems a bit expensive for most classrooms). Some teachers, though, are upset to see the chalkboard go away. They say that it has the best surface for teaching kids to write. They’re afraid that the whiteboard encourages people to write too quickly.
