Chameleon projection board with whiteboards in a classroom

On this page, you can read all about using whiteboards in education and combining them with digital displays via displays and projectors. Compare the advantages of several commonly used setups and find out which one suits your needs.

Writing boards create consistency and overview

In classroom teaching, lesson material is underpinned by reasoning and/or formulas. The added value of a good teacher is being able to intuitively build a narrative that students can follow. An analogue writing board makes this possible. As teachers manually write their lesson material on the board, explanations are adapted to the pace of writing. This is called ‘slow teaching’ and is a way of teaching that gives brains time to comprehend lesson material optimally.

Whiteboards in today's education

With the rise of ‘digital nomadism’, the field of education has also undergone a shift. Teachers and educational professionals are increasingly embracing the freedom offered by technology to flexibly choose their work location. Traditional classrooms are being replaced by flexible, technology-integrated environments that support the needs of both teachers and students. At the same time, analogue whiteboards are an indispensable link in these modern learning environments. They are integrated as a tangible tool for creativity and interaction, creating a balance between digital and traditional learning tools. This evolution in the spatial design of educational facilities reflects the growing trend of a borderless and flexible educational landscape.

Whiteboard and projection

The combination of a whiteboard and projector in education opens the door to a wide range of possibilities and benefits for both teachers and students. One of its main advantages is its image size. Projecting on a single Chameleon board can go up to 120 inches. Projections are therefore perfectly legible up to at least 7 metres.

Whiteboard and display

Displays such as touchscreens are used in all levels of education. They can contribute to visually engaging lessons with video and other digital content. However, displays are no substitute for whiteboards or chalkboards. Chalkboard displays enable a form of intuitive teaching that cannot be supported by digital means. Therefore, the most ideal setup is one where the digital display is used in combination with the analogue chalkboard.
