How to get your child to do Homework

Homework is one of the biggest challenges a parent faces daily. After all, having sat all those long hours in school, the last thing your child wants to do is sit down some more and focus on school work.

Unfortunately, homework is necessary, enabling your child to retain what was taught in class that day.

That being said, homework shouldn’t be something both you and your child dislike; it shouldn’t be a daily struggle, at least not every day.

Creating a Conducive Environment for Homework will help in a long way to encourage your child to like doing Homework. A child’s bedroom setting geared towards homework instead of play will make a big difference.

Whiteboards replacing Blackboards

In a classroom situation in Kenya whiteboards are slowly replacing blackboards. Here in Kenya we are a little behind as far as innovations are concerned. But the change is taking place gradually, specially in private schools.

Blackboards are flat writing or drawing surfaces. Several decades ago, they were made out of slate. Since the slate usually was black in color, this gave blackboards their name.
Whiteboards are also flat writing or drawing surfaces but with a white surface on which markers can be used.

Teachers seem to prefer whiteboards because the use of chalk results in chalk dust that can aggravate allergies. Chalk dust also has to be washed from your hands after the board is used. In contrast, whiteboards use markers and therefore do not put any type of dust into the air. They do not leave any coating that has to be washed from your hands, and so are considered cleaner. [Chalk dust is also not good for a room that has Computers.] [You can also project Powerpoint slides on to whiteboards.] [From a students perspective, whiteboards are also easier to read.]

Our observations of teachers using our combo blackboard/whiteboard indicate that the teachers seem to use the whiteboard side more than the blackboard side.

Both whiteboards and chalkboards can be reused as many times. Blackboards are cleaned with erasers that typically are made from felt. Whiteboards are cleaned with special dry-erase erasers, and if marker residue builds up, they are wiped down with a general surface cleanser. Users of whiteboards, however, have to be more careful of the writing instrument they select. Only dry erase markers can be used on whiteboards, since permanent markers or other markers will not come off the whiteboard surface easily.

[Most schools in the UK are using whiteboards now – the children often have small (A4 size) ones for writing answers on and holding them up for the teacher to see – like the old slates I suppose.]
