Why not just use chalk? This may seem an obvious question; after all, most teaching has been done this way for several hundred years.Teachers are familiar with using chalk to convey information on the blackboard, which the students can then copy. There are a number of benefits of teaching this way as teachers are able to stand in front of a class and chat informally to their students.The flow of information can be dynamic as teachers are able to chalk ideas onto the blackboard and discuss the content as they proceed. Equally, students can also ask questions to which the teachers can respond, giving immediate feedback.
