Sticky Campus Partner Organisation Facilitating group work, innovation and visible thinking Wireless technology is now invaluable to the collaborative learning process, as it allows access to research materials, VLE’s, and facilitates students co- designing learning objects.  But there remains a place for surfaces where writing and diagrams can be developed and shared by student groups, making thinking visible and providing time for reflection and iterations.  Writing surfaces provide big spaces for big ideas that can be expressed and explained, and which, when developed as part of a conversation, are more likely to be recalled in context at a later date.  And technology helps here too; who hasn’t got a phone or tablet with a camera that can capture these creative flows so they can become a digital record or instantly shown to other student groups in the room. TeacherBoards satisfy the needs for a wide range of styles, sizes and mobility of writing surfaces for both education and business, where increasingly wholes walls of writing surfaces are providing teams the foundations for innovating products and processes that drive business improvement. About TeacherBoards TeacherBoards have been manufacturing and distributing boards from our Yorkshire based factory to educational institutions for over thirty years. With a strong history of supplying many local council catalogues, online retailers, builders and contractors, the chances are you have bought our boards without even knowing it. In 2015 TeacherBoards merged with Sundeala which helped us become the largest board manufacturer in the UK. This has helped us expand our range of products and materials that can be manufactured here. For example, Sundeala boards are made from 100% recycled material and its strong core can be adapted into a variation of products suitable for high functioning learning environments. As specialist manufacturers, we recognise that ‘one size does not fit all’ and we have a high performance factory set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales where we manufacture our traditional and bespoke products. Our expert craftsmen build boards and finish them by hand, from simple felt boards to complicated tamperproof lockable notice boards. This means that if you need a product altered to meet a specific need, our manufacturers are able to help. Whether a customer might need a thinner core, a particular type of fabric or a special size, if it can be made without compromising on quality, our factory can produce it. Over the years, many of our products have been developed in conjunction with schools that have got in touch with a particular need or new idea. Because we understand the materials and not just the finished product, we know how products can be adapted and what uses they may or may not be suitable for. We are always looking to expand our education range with innovative and inspirational products that can help increase the functionality and credibility of a learning environment. Our Installations Team of in-house engineers and expert project managers offer an end to end service, from site visits to measure and assess room requirements through to fitting and finishing. This is great for schools, colleges and universities that are tackling large projects and require assistance.  For the ultimate hassle-free refurbishment, we start with a comprehensive site survey where we measure rooms and address any potential issues such as asbestos which needs specialist handlers or awkward spaces that require bespoke boards. This means we can work with the customer to create the best presentation solutions for any venue, whether you need modern products that will blend seamlessly with sensitive historical environments or state of the art display surfaces for brand new builds. Business Development Manager Rob Nichol Rob Nichol joined TeacherBoards in October 2016 to supply display and presentation surfaces to Universities. His personal interest in this field is the design of future teaching. The key to this is to understand the reasons why people require certain solutions for certain spaces, such as why mathematicians will invariably request a chalkboard column board system for their lecture theatres or why something as simple as a mobile whiteboard could engage technology averse academics in group study rooms and create a better dynamic between the academic and students. Rob is always keen both to learn about and share best practice and is fortunate enough to be able to do this on a daily basis as he meets with University AV, IT and Estates teams across the UK. When you need any kind of communications surface in your teaching space, don’t hesitate to contact him – he’s very happy to help!
