VNPS: the perfect classroom sidekicks

VNPS: the perfect classroom sidekicks


"For years I have struggled with the balance of having interactive charts but the guilt of knowing we will just recycle them in a few weeks. The Wipebook Flipchart not only allows us to display our thoughts for an extended period of time but also allows us to reuse them over and over again."

 

Research supports that collaborative learning environment leads to deeper learning. Students who are able to engage in learning together build high thinking skills, better communication, and even increased leadership skills. The Wipebook Flipchart was the perfect tool to allow students to engage in this form of learning with VNPS activities and Thinking Classroom values.

Sharing a thinking space

 

One common concern with collaborative learning is having the right tools to facilitate. The Wipebook Flipchart allows students to work with partners using a common space. Students are able to work together while still having the amount of space to complete their own process. When hung on the wall, several students can utilize the space simultaneously! One advantage of using the Wipebook reusable Flipchart was the ability for students to show their thought process but also having the chance to edit or change their answers.

Piecing It Together

 

The Wipebook Flipchart can be used in a stack or separated throughout the room. This creates erasable surfaces throughout the entire classroom! Students can move around to work and share ideas. As a class, we have enjoyed jig-saw activities which encourage students to collaborate with many different classmates. Throughout these collaborations, we continue to grow as a community in trust and knowledge.

Greener Classrooms

 

In a world where we are constantly challenging students to find greener solutions, the Wipebook Flipchart is the perfect ecofriendly tool for modeling. For years I have struggled with the balance of having interactive charts but the guilt of knowing we will just recycle them in a few weeks. With the arrival of this product, that eco-guilt is gone and I can focus on the activities I want to organize for my students.

 

The Wipebook Flipchart not only allows us to display our thoughts for an extended period of time but also allows us to reuse them over and over again. I also appreciate the easy Wipebook Scan App that I can use on my device to store the images for future reference. While I have only been using this product for about a month, I already know I will be using it in my teaching for years to come!
