Whether you are in the teaching profession or not, you may still want to look at whiteboards and chalkboards if you have kids at home. These boards can be used for home tuitions as well as for writing in offices. To find out which one you should buy, consider shopping online.

 

What to look for in whiteboards and chalkboards?

Choose one on the basis of erase-ability

Depending on the frequency of use your whiteboard or blackboard, see how clean the board erases. For limited use, choose melamine surface for whiteboard. Though it is the most economic option, it needs cleaners on a regular basis. When the whiteboard is being more frequently, get one with a porcelain writing surface. They erase cleaner and need much less effort in cleaning. There are PVC coated steel, high pressure laminate and porcelain enamelled steel whiteboards.

Then there are whiteboards with magnetic surface that clean most easily. Blackboards were first made of thin and smooth sheet of black slate stone. Porcelain enamel is the most popular material for blackboards and they are quite easy to clean. Silica is also used to make the blackboard surface. Green ‘blackboards’ are preferred these days, as the colour of the board is more soothing than the black surface.

Durability of the whiteboard or chalkboard

Cheaper melamine surfaces for whiteboard develop scratch and dent quite easily with even modest use. When you use your whiteboard frequently you should invest in a porcelain surface. You may choose a whiteboard chalkboard combination when you use the board frequently.

Whiteboard or blackboard with special features

If the boards have magnetic surfaces you get better visibility because of cleaner surfaces. Some boards have grid patterns that are useful for drawing straight line or graphs.

Chalkboard and whiteboard for schools

Traditional blackboards were in use in schools for hundred years. As they are used excessively, it is better to invest in costlier chalkboards made of porcelain enamel. It has a lifetime of 50 years, if managed properly. There are different options for the frame for both whiteboard and blackboards, including solid wood, anodized aluminum and PVC. Unframed whiteboards provide more space to write.

Chalkboard and whiteboard for engineering studies

Chalkboards and blackboards make learning any process easy as they are very effective in demonstrating the process in real time. You can buy boards with grid for presenting engineering data easily. For use on such boards, you can use precision measurement instruments like whiteboard/chalkboard drawing instrument set that will have triangle set, transparent protractor, compass and T-square.

Chalkboard and whiteboard for business meetings

If you really want to go high-tech, consider buying an electronic whiteboard. Whatever you write on the board can be saved to your computer for later use. This board is great where you want your audience to listen and not get busy in taking notes.
