Rookie mistake

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I walked into the empty classroom this morning and I wrote my name on the white board at the front of the class. My first class said nothing, but when I returned to the classroom for my second period - the kids were already in the room - and I looked up and saw that my name on the board was very faded. I commented, gave the "what happened?" look, and the kids pointed out that I had written my name on the computer projection screen/board, not the whiteboard next to it. We all had a good laugh at my expense and one of the nice kids (great class of 10th graders) got some type of cleaner and took it off, good as new. (It did not wipe clean with just paper towel and water). Next time I will pay closer attention. There actually were a different type of pen to use on the screen, but I will stick to writing on the whiteboard with dry erase pens.

I live in fear of this. I'm glad the ink came off easily.

One of my worst fears! I didn't know there was cleaner for it! Yay!

We had some presenters come in earlier this year, and one of the first things that happened was that one of them wrote on the SmartBoard with a dry-erase marker. Every classroom in our district has a SmartBoard (and has for years), so we were surprised they didn't recognize an interactive board.

dry erase compatible so if the person was used to newer tech, it would be an understandable mistake. Smartboards all look similar across the years and models.

I probably would have written on it too. The ones I have seen are dry erase-compatible. We don't have many Smartboards, so I don't have much experience with them and wouldn't know some could be different.

I have subbed in a classroom though where a previous sub had written on the pull-down projection screen with a sharpie.(???!) Several years later, her writing is still there.

At one of my schools, the teachers are nice enough to put a post it on the smart board to remind us not to write on it
