When I return back to school in September, my classroom will be fitted out with a new interactive whiteboard. I have used one of these before and they really enhance lessons and learning whilst helping make some mundane lessons seem a little bit more fun for kids.
What I have never been told and never had explained to me as that there are health risks associated with using whiteboards. There are ways, quite simple ways, of avoiding these risks, but they have never been explained to me or anyone else I know.
It is good to read HERE that there are people trying to make the relevant authorities aware of the risks, but it seems that until a teacher goes blind, nobody in a position to warn teachers is is really interested in the risks.
