My kids love the mini-whiteboards. We have them in every classroom in my mathematics department. My Headteacher had never seen one before and I used them in my interview for my head of dept job. I was the only candidate out of 5 who did not use a powerpoint presentation. The kids that were my interview audience still mention my lesson to me. Other than for general AFL throughout the lesson I also set aside a full independent learning session where the pupils are given a topic that was delivered to them a week ago and they work through questions from the textbook but they select the questions and practice on the mini-whiteboard first, check their answers then note down the workings in their exercise books. I find that the students targe more difficult questions as they can have a go first. Other subjects have seen their use in the mathematics department and are looking to purchase them for their departments. I would love it if the school could get them for every classroom. I know that you can get them on planners but unless you have an A4 size miniwhiteboard its not the same. Our biggest problem is the pens as they run out after a few weeks. I might have to make it a piece of required mathematics equipment and get the pupils to purchase their own. Cuts!!!!
