If you work in a school, you’re probably used to using whiteboards when teaching, but schools aren’t the only ones using this traditional note making or presentation method. Many people keep small whiteboards at home, whether it’s in a home office, or in a child’s room to encourage learning, even offices use whiteboards and it’s been incredibly popular for a number of years. But with new board types being introduced such as interactive boards and glass boards, are whiteboards becoming dated and out of fashion?
If you’re asking which board type is right for you and the environment you work in, read our analysis of the two board types below to see which board would suit you the most.
Traditionally, whiteboards have been one of the longest note taking methods used across the world. These board types are particularly popular in schools for lessons, but are also often also often used in offices for taking notes and presentations.
Despite other board types being available, whiteboards remain a present and popular choice, particularly amongst classrooms. While whiteboards are predominately used in schools, they can be used creatively in other environments.
Whiteboards are available in a range of sizes so there’s nearly always an option to fit the space. They are also an affordable option when compared to other products adding to their appeal. This allows you to use miniature whiteboards with students in classrooms, small whiteboards at workstations, medium whiteboards in home offices and larger boards in classrooms and offices. Because of the durability and reasonable pricing whiteboards are often easy and good selections of board types for all environments.
This board type is often available as a multi purpose board; half whiteboard and another type of surface, usually felt or cork. Because of this, you can store many types of notes and attachments to these boards. Whiteboards also come in mobile options, so they can be moved around classrooms and offices easily.
Glass boards defiantly stand out amongst other board types. With a smooth cutting edge contemporary finish due to the simplistic use of glass, glass boards appear incredibly modern and stylish whilst having the ability to blend in to any environment due to its transparency. Due to their contemporary style, these boards are great for improving the image of professionalism in offices.
Glass boards don’t just look great, they’re also great to use. These boards don’t suffer from ghosting like whiteboards do, which is perfect for clean office environments that are tended to be kept tidy for professionalism.
Unlike whiteboards, glass boards can come in multiple colours. Whether you want a standard clear board to blend in with your office environment, a blue board for design and architecture purposes or even a vibrant coloured board to brighten up a classroom, glass boards can come in many colours to suit every room, even your home office. You can also add LED lighting to your glass board, to continue a polished, contemporary theme with your boards in the office to add a high quality feel to your working environment.
Glass boards are available in a selection of sizes. Although whiteboards vary in size, placing different sizes and colours of glass boards together can be a highly creative method of decorating your office or classroom, and yet the boards still maintain their functionality. For example, you can place miniature glass boards along your workstation, and with the use of coloured glass boards, you can colour code your boards for various types of notices and levels of importance.
As well as the ability to choose from various coloured boards, with glass boards you can also have high quality images of your choice printed onto the surface of the board, from family photographs to company branding and logos. Personalise your own glass boards for your office today.
Each board type has its own advantages. The glass boards are beautifully sleek for professional environments, and yet the whiteboards continue to be successful teaching resources within schools. It’s down to you to think about the advantages of each board that have been discussed to conclude on which board is right for you.
