3 Ways Writable Surfaces Can Be Used In Classrooms

Are you considering adding writable surfaces to your classroom? Well, you should.

Having a whiteboard surface can change the way teachers work and students learn.

But, how can you get the most out of your writable surfaces?  That depends on how you use them.

Find out three ways that you can make use of writable surfaces in your classroom by reading below.

Reduce Paper Usage With Your Writable Surfaces

Would you like your classroom to be more environmentally friendly? What if there was a way for you to reduce the amount of paper you  use during class time?

That can be a reality with writable surfaces.

Add Whiteboard Paint in either white or clear options to your classroom desks to transform them into writable areas for students to use.

Younger students can carry out equations or spelling exercises on their desk and then once everyone has come to the correct answer, write it down neatly into their notebook. Older students can make the most of their surface by plotting out assignments and keeping track of project deadlines.

This will greatly reduce the amount of paper you use, as students will be doing the majority of their work on their desks and only using notebooks when necessary.

Unlimited Space For Problem Solving

Do you find whiteboards limited in space? One of the main benefits of creating writable surfaces instead is that they can be as large as your entire wall.

This means now matter how tall or small your students are, they’ll have room to write upon.

Also, instead of sending one student at a time up to the board, you can have groups of students working on your writable surfaces at once.

Not only will they have unlimited space to write but it could also help with teamwork skills as well.

Writable Desks Aren’t Just For Students

Think writable desks are just for students? Then think again.

Teachers can use writable surfaces too. Transform your desk into a whiteboard and use it to create lesson plans.

You can keep track of the various topics you need to cover and cross them out as you go. Then once the day is over, simply wipe your desk clean and start again the next day.  

These are just a few ways that writable surfaces can be used in classrooms. No matter how you teach, bringing writable desks or walls into your classroom can be really beneficial.
