Boards Get Brains, Chalk Vanishes
I've used this type of board and find it quite useful for explaining concepts. But I find it more useful in participatory decision-making workshops where different viewpoints are put on the same 'map' and participants see how their perspectives relate with that of their colleagues. I find the ensuing discussions during these workshops to be more focused and productive.
"All across the country, chalkboards are being ditched in favor of interactive, computer-driven whiteboards that allow students and teachers to share assignments, surf the web and edit video using their fingers as pens."
