Dry erase boards have been around for decades, being utilized in academic learning environments as well as being a staple in company conference rooms. However, modern innovations have improved the concept of “dry erase” to make group learning more efficient and accommodate changing situations for better productivity. Having dry erase boards that complement each other ensures students can collaborate and visualize their ideas while allowing teachers to customize and adapt lesson plans for both group and individualized learning.
Here are several dry erase solutions to help guide in picking what’s right for your learning environment:
Wall-Mounted Dry Erase 2.0
While traditional dry erase whiteboards have eclipsed old chalkboards (which date back to the 19th century), there have been many recent advancements that make these boards better and better. Some of these innovations include a frameless design to help utilize extra board space while providing an attractive and elegant appearance. Materials such as porcelain-coated steel with aluminum help with mounting on a curved wall while minimizing dry erase ghosting after repeated use. The Elemental Frameless Dry Erase Board by Best-Rite offers a wall-mounted dry erase board that also doubles as a projection screen that contributes to a seamless transition between lesson plans.
