Modular Whiteboard installed in MH203 and Open House

Hello Faculty:

I know you are all busy with end-of-semester tasks. I would like to talk to you about a demo system that we have in Mitchell room 203. These are moveable whiteboards that can be hung and un-hung from rails mounted in the classroom. These boards are excellent for in-class collaborative work or even just to extend your teaching surfaces around the edge of the room. When you think of what this system is, think of permanent 2’x3′ post-it notes that I have seen many of you use in the classrooms.

Here is a photosynth picture of the boards in-place in MH203 (silverlight plugin required):

We are evaluating these boards and will perhaps be installing them in some locations around campus. The first likely locations will be the classrooms in the East campus building when it is renovated. See the product information sheet on this system:

Open House and Request for Comment

Do you like what you see? Want to come see it in person? Take a break from grading exams and term papers and check it out this Friday, December 14th from 10am-12pm in MH203. If no one shows up, I get two hours of uninterrupted time to work on other projects. You can check the boards out or come and chat about other technology-related subjects. You can RSVP with the link below or just show up 🙂

If you can’t make it this Friday, you can check the classroom out anytime it is open. Feel free to comment on this blog post if you have feedback or input about this system.

We saw these during a webinar on collaborative learning spaces. A special thanks to Dr. Nate Phinney for setting that webinar up.
