Chalkboard

Every day this semester, our EE 380 teacher has commented on how hard it is to write on the chalkboard in our classroom. And nothing ever happened to fix it.... until Thursday.

Here's a picture of the hard-to-write-on chalkboard:


The thing you should notice about this picture is that it's lacking our teacher. That's because, just prior to me snapping this, our teacher, in frustration said, "Alright, I'm going to go get the Dean. You all stay here!" And he left.

Then he came back with the Dean of the college:



And just as the end-of-class bell rang, two workers came in to put the new whiteboards up.

It's amazing what can get done when the right people know what to do.

And here's another wallpaper of mine:

That's amazing! I need to remember this technique for making things happen when I am a teacher with crappy equipment. I will study this video endlessly.

I loved hearing them hypothesize the reasoning as to why the board wouldn't work....but mostly, I am astonished to know there are still classrooms out there with chalkboards.
