When we first started teaching in the late 1970’s, written communication with pupils was via the chalk blackboard or the banda machine.
Nowadays blackboards are hardly ever used in schools, in fact all of ours were removed to be replaced with very expensive interactive whiteboards. We also have a few small metal white boards.
Although I use my interactive whiteboard constantly, I love the look of words written on a blackboard. Mind you, I can’t write in comic sans whereas I am able to type in it!!
Still, Tim has found a good use for all of that all of that redundant chalk …
He takes a photograph of our kitchen notice board at Le Petit-Pressigny.
What he hasn’t got the knack of doing yet is to check the photograph of the list BEFORE we return to France!
