A couple of weeks ago I was grading papers in the beautiful “vista” portion of our hallway here:
It’s a lovely place to sit and work. The light is great, and my eyes can scan over the seasonal changes in the beautiful nature of the 58 acre wetland that composes 60% of our campus, or watch the Jetsons-like flow of vehicles along the elevated roadways joining State Route 522 and I-405.
Anyway, while I was sitting there grading papers Mark Kochanski stopped by. Mark is a fellow teacher in the Computing and Software Systems program here and teaches some of the same courses I teach. We got to talking and I mentioned how my students are using whiteboards in my class. Mark was intrigued, so I showed him where the whiteboards are cached in one of the computer labs, and offered him their use.
He tried them out the next day in his CSS 411 / BIS 421 Computing Technology and Public Policy class. Here’s his story of how the whiteboards worked out in that class.
