Whiteboard Desks: Low tech can be really fun!

Whiteboard Desks: Low tech can be really fun! | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Somehow by the luck of the draw, I ended up with the worst desks in our entire school when I joined this staff in 2013. Not only are the desk legs loose, and I’m constantly tightening them with a wrench, but also they are peeling and carved up. One even says “I hate this class” in big letters across the front. Let’s not even get into the gum artwork under the desks...


It finally came to a point where I was fed up. These desks have been through a lot, and they aren’t serving my kids’ needs. I can’t exactly go out and buy new desks. Solution: do some DIY and make whiteboard desks.

At the beginning of the school year I put butcher paper on tables and laid out markers. The students enjoyed it for a few days. This would be better, as they could erase and it would remain fresh.

This is an interesting idea. I suspect some teachers do something similar already and have for some time.

It has to be practical, because ethics is not theoretical and abstract. Kwame Appiah proposed that when ethics are strictly theoretical and abstract we make water from wine.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Interacting with one another is essential in learning and problem-based learning. Creating spaces where this happens naturally is important and echoes the work John Dewey suggested was critical in teaching.
