Education World: Whiteboards Stimulate Student Learning

Following on from Alla Askarova; comment about the whiteboarding concept (in our post at http://sfltdu.blogspot.com/2011/09/whiteboarding-low-tech-way-to-make.html), here is Education World's idea about how whiteboards stimulate student learning:

"Start with a clean slate next semester -- introduce mini-whiteboards to your classroom! Students love working on their own whiteboards; it's a great way of keeping an entire class actively involved in a lesson. Education World offers five lessons to engage students in learning with whiteboards. Included: Tips from whiteboard users plus alternatives to whiteboards! 
"Individual student whiteboards are the 21st-century version of the chalk slates used by students in colonial times! As thousands of teachers have found, whiteboards are a great way of actively involving students in the learning process -- and a terrific tool for immediate feedback and assessment."
More details and five simple lesson plans can be found at their post at http://www.educationworld.com/a_lesson/lesson/lesson251.shtml
