Benefits of Using a Dry Erase Board
Most people think that whiteboards or blackboards are the only types of boards that can be found in a classroom or an office. This is not the case because other types of boards have been made available to replace those common boards. These boards that have come to replace the whiteboards and blackboards are the ones that are referred to as dry erase boards. These types of boards are gaining popularity nowadays because of the many benefits that are associated with them. Here are several benefits of using a dry erase board instead of other boards.
One of these main benefits is that with dry erase board one can manage to have legible writing. Note that when using dry erase board there are no limitations if the type of marker that you are supposed to use. You can use any type of marker that is is available at that time and whether is written on this board remains visible for a long time. The fact that most users of these boards use black or white markers does not mean that using other markers of different colors is not allowed. The white background of these boards makes everything thing that is written on it to be seen because it helps in increasing its visibility. Note that people will only pay attention in a class or an office if whatever that is being written on the board can be seen. Otherwise, they will keep complaining that they cannot see and this may end up disrupting the session and waste a lot of time which can be recovered.
Another benefit that is associated with the use of dry erase boards is that they can be used with a lot of ease. Note just like whiteboards dry erase boards are very easy to use. The only difference comes in that chalks are used when writing on the whiteboards or the blackboards. The use of chalks is sometimes very annoying because it may dirty your clothes and this may end up ruining your moods. Also sometimes chalks may keep on breaking and falling thus distracting whatever that is meant to be written on the board. With dry erase boards people are required to use markers and not chalks whenever they are teaching or demonstrating something on the board. The use of markers is considered to be neater compared to the use of chalks because markers leave no residue. In translation, the use of markers is considered to be the best compared to the use of chalks because they are not messy like chalks. You need to know that when you clean a blackboard there is some chalk residue that embeds itself on the surface of the board. With dry erase boards this can never happen because there is no residue left when you make use of a marker. In case a marker leaves a stain on the board, this stain can easily be removed through the use of an alcohol-based cleaning solution. With chalkboards, water is used for cleaning purposes and it cannot help clean any damages that are caused to the board.
