The Benefits Of A Magnetic Blackboard

Updated on August 29, 2009

A magnetic blackboard is a good investment for you if you are looking for a way to keep your important notes and messages in one place or if you are looking for a versatile board for your children to use during the course of their playtime activity.

The original chalkboards were made from black or dark grey slate stone and examples of these can be seen in a lot of period dramas such as Oliver Twist or any other film that has a school setting.

Chalkboards became more widely used in schools and colleges and were created by using large pieces of wood attached to the wall and painted with a black matt paint. Further advancements were made and soon schools and offices started using sheets of plastic that came on a rotating roller system. The colours were usually black or green. A lot of educational institutions still use this system, though a lot have progressed onto the use of whiteboards.
