Update Your School Staffrooms with Magnetic Whiteboards

Magnetic whiteboard wall for teachers lounge

Functional surfaces are a great addition to any learning environment. They promote interactive and collaborative learning, allowing students to visualise their lesson material better.

Just like in the classroom, functional surfaces can also benefit your school staffroom.
In this post, we’ll explore how a magnetic whiteboard can enhance the overall functionality of a classroom and staffy room setting.

What is a magnetic whiteboard?

A magnetic whiteboard is a writable surface that attracts magnets. So, apart from writing on it with dry-erase markers, you can stick papers, cards, photographs, etc. to it with good-quality magnets.

What are the best ways to get magnetic whiteboards?

Depending on where you want to have your magnetic whiteboards you can either use magnetic whiteboard paint or magnetic whiteboard wallpapers to create magnetic whiteboard surfaces in your school.

You can use magnetic whiteboard paint to create dry-erase magnetic walls, convert old chalkboards into magnetic whiteboard surfaces, and create writable magnetic walls in any colour. You can use magnetic plaster instead of magnetic paint to get a superior magnetic pull. The magnetite content in the paint gives ferrimagnetic properties to any surface.

The magnetic whiteboard wallpaper is also suitable for all the above purposes except creating transparent magnetic whiteboards.

What are the benefits of having a magnetic whiteboard in a staffroom?

There are a whole range of possibilities that open up with the installation of a supercharged collaborative tool such as a magnetic whiteboard. We’ll explore some of the possibilities here.

Better scheduling
With so many facilities and equipment, it can be hard to keep track of who is using the school gym or TV at any given time.

Instead of printing out a schedule of which staff member will be using which facility at a certain time, why not just write it up on your magnetic whiteboard wall?
This way if any changes need to be made to the schedule you can easily do so.
The staff at St. John’s Primary School wanted a way to better organize their days, so they decided to create a magnetic whiteboard surface in their staff room.

To do this, they combined Smart Magnetic Paint and Smart Whiteboard Paint.

Now they can organise and manage their day most efficiently.

Replace thumbtacks with magnets
Sick of finding all of your notices on the floor instead of where they should be? Most staff room notice boards are filled with thumbtacks that have a hard time keeping your documents in place. So why not try a magnetic whiteboard surface instead?

You can stick four sheets of A4-size paper with a single neodymium magnet on a wall treated with the Smart magnetic paint by Smarter Surfaces. The super magnetic paint with a 60% magnetite content offers even better magnetic pull. With a large enough magnet, you can mount a TV on a wall treated with the magnetic plaster by Smarter Surfaces, thanks to its 75% magnetite content.

Now, maybe you have a quick update you need to share with your colleagues. Don’t waste time typing and printing it out. Instead, simply write your update onto the wall and wipe it off when it’s no longer relevant.

Magnetic whiteboard walls give you the freedom to easily and effortlessly display your notices. That’s how it should be.

Important Information Where You Can See It
In most schools, there will be students who suffer from medical conditions or allergies.

To ensure the proper health and safety of these students, all staff must be aware of who these students are and what they are dealing with.

With a magnetic whiteboard surface, you can stick up pictures of students in your staff room and write out important details. These can be what allergy or condition students may have what to do and who to call in case an emergency arises.

Don’t forget the health and safety of your staff members.
