Why chalk boards?

They are boards. They are black.

Has anyone ever really been offended by the word blackboard?

Can white people get offended by the chalky inference?

Just curious.
None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

    Agreed then, from now on no 'black boards' or 'white boards', just educational visual interface devices :wink:

    JEVIDs it is then.
    But will that offend Jevids?

    This could get tricky. :wink:

  • Is this in response to my post on "Office Notice"?

    Always good to get a mass debate going.

    Could this turn into a helmet thread?
  • arran77arran77 Posts: 9,260
    No helmets or mass debates here please, keep that for BB :wink:

    A mass debate would be heavy going.

    Well judging by the picture he posted of her yesterday she does do something other than clean but I don't think it's to do with crime scenes :shock: :wink:

    Surely that would belong on the milk board thread?

    They are not necessarily used for education, not if any of the bollox I've seen management write on them during meetings is anything to go by.

    School chalk isn't even actual chalk - it's calcium sulphate (Plaster of Paris*) rather than calcium carbonate ("real" chalk).

    According to Wikipedia there are 3 places in France named Mars plus another 2 in the US, so not entirely implausible. ;)

    I think they only exist in African classrooms these days ... And on the back of motorbikes in the poorer cycle races of course. It does amuse me when the whizzy, all singing all dancing interactive whiteboards crash as they often do.... Utter chaos

    In a cross thread coincidence........

    They have installed blackboards on the walls opposite all the lift doors in our office building.

    They are supposed to have varying inspirational messages.

    They are blank. :lol:

    I've started a thread for you Daviesee to generate some 'inspirational' messages for you to impart on your colleagues :wink:
