School whiteboards a danger to eyesight

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

School whiteboards a danger to eyesight (Times)

This is something I’ve been wondering about for a while. I don’t think that these would have any effect if only used for a little while at a time, but if they are placed in all classrooms and are expected to be used for long periods each day, then it’s clearly not going to be good for teachers’ eyesight. Every time I’ve used them, the bright light has annoyed me. I’m certain that this is a greater health risk than the chalk dust from a good old black board. But this is a cleaner solution, and therefore necessarily better in the eyes (no pun intended) of some.
