How Dry-Erase Painted Walls Benefit Teachers

Top-quality ReMARKable Dry-Erase Paint is a natural fit as an instructional tool for teachers from the kindergarten to the university level. The huge open writing and drawing canvas provided by a dry-erase painted wall makes teaching much easier and more enjoyable for students and teachers alike. Some of the many advantages that dry-erase painted surfaces provide for teachers are presented in this article.

Promote Retention of Lesson Material through “Meta-cognitive Modelling”

The real-time creation of text and visual images that occurs when teachers use dry-erase painted walls strengthens information retention among students studying math, science, English, history, and other subjects. Also, when teachers speak while going through a series of steps in a process like solving a math problem or interpreting a story on a dry-erase wall, they engage in “meta-cognitive modeling.” In this approach, teachers talk through the various stages of their thought process with students while writing on the wall, thus demonstrating how to reason in lessons that involve interpreting information, analyzing statements, solving problems, or drawing conclusions. The meta-cognitive modeling or thinking-out-loud technique is especially applicable in math classes, where teachers plan and then explicitly describe their underlying thinking process during problem-solving.

In fact, this activity should be the main focus of so-called “teacher talk” during all types of lessons. Teacher talk includes everything said to students while they’re working in the classroom, and when teachers think out loud, students pay closer attention than they otherwise would. The meta-cognitive modeling strategy can also be practiced in reading classes, as teachers ask rhetorical questions while reading a story or make comments about how to anticipate what’s coming up next in the plot while writing down the key aspects of their thought process on a dry erase wall as they go.

In this way, students can more actively participate in learning by bringing together all of their mental resources and so have more profitable learning experiences. In order to do this, a dry-erase painted wall can function as a centerpiece for the learning process as teachers write out and speak about the sequence of steps involved in solving or understanding given academic material like the math problems or story plots mentioned above. When children “think about thinking” like this, they come to understand how they learn and become conscious of the steps followed and the
means used to gain knowledge, solve problems and perform other academic tasks.

Enhance Collaboration among Students and between Teachers and Students

By promoting lively interaction between teachers and students and among groups of students working together on lessons, dry-erase walls are ideal media for real-time collaborative learning. According to studies by educational psychologists, students using dry-erase boards instead of flip charts or other media are better at collaborating and encouraging others to work with them in sharing ideas.

For instance, in comparing flip charts to dry-erase boards, the researchers found that geometry students who worked out problems on flip charts did most of their talking before any writing or drawing began, possibly because marker ink is not erasable from flip chart paper. Therefore, much of the reasoning about what should be presented on the charts stopped before much content was written down. This occurred even though the students had been told they could start over on a fresh sheet of paper as often as they liked. In addition, the writer was almost always the same student – the one who drew the best, wrote most legibly or was the most aggressive in snatching the marker. This caused the final product that appeared on the flip charts to be the writers’ versions of the groups’ ideas.

However, with dry-erase boards, instead of waiting until the group’s reasoning process was completed, students began writing immediately, then stopped, started, and erased and rewrote constantly, so what appeared on the board evolved as the conversation developed. While some of the students didn’t write anything, it was much more common to have several students writing or drawing on the board at the same time. Additionally, students who avoided writing did occasionally erase what others had written or suggested that what had been done should be erased and redone.

These findings show that dry-erase boards stimulate group collaboration in a much more dynamic and democratic way than do flip charts or other non-erasable media. The students working on dry-erase surfaces avoided stopping to think about what they were going to write down but instead jumped in and started writing and erasing, so their work evolved dynamically as they collaborated during the problem-solving process. And, with the vast surfaces offered by dry-erase painted walls, such collaborative work would have been even more creative and free-flowing, with many students being able to write at the same time and interacting as a group to solve the assigned geometry problem.

Stimulate Interactivity in the Classroom

Who needs the hassle and high price tag of a complicated electronic interactive whiteboard when a dry-erase painted wall can serve the same purpose for a fraction of the cost? A dry-erase-painted surface turns a classroom wall into a giant interactive whiteboard that teachers can use jointly with multiple students throughout the school day for lessons in any subject area and for any length of time needed.

Provide Freedom to Teach with Abandon

Dry-erase painted walls give teachers the freedom to teach without the constraints caused by the limited writing surfaces of traditional framed dry-erase boards, flip charts, tiny computer screens, and other small media used for instructional purposes. Open-ended and vast, dry-erase walls are attractive blank canvases that inspire a sense of freedom and creativity in teachers and students alike.

Captivate Students and Hold their Attention

The large, open-ended writing and drawing spaces offered by dry-erase painted walls hold kids’ attention extremely well. Children enjoy writing and drawing on vertical surfaces, and with dry-erase painted walls, they have the freedom to cover a vast area in the process. When classwork is done on a dry-erase painted wall, the surface is close to children’s eyes, thus helping them to focus on the task they’re doing, and in turn, improving their ability to concentrate and pay attention. This close proximity, along with the wall’s vertical surface, also allows children to maintain an upright posture, which is another aspect that helps with maintaining attention. Without a chair to rely on for support, children constantly use their back muscles to keep themselves standing straight, so they can easily access the wall’s surface. This helps to foster good posture, which in turn can improve kids’ self-image and desire to learn.

Provide Efficiency in Doing Classroom Teaching

Being large and easy to access at any time throughout the day, dry-erase painted walls are excellent tools for helping teachers to teach efficiently. The fact that dry-erase surfaces are also extremely easy to write on and erase makes changing from math to English to history and other subjects during the day quick and time-saving.

Roominess Provides Enough Space for Multiple Subjects and Users at Once

Dry-erase painted walls allow much more room for teaching lessons than do traditional framed whiteboards or other surfaces, and they also have a lower cost per square foot. The vast open canvas of a dry-erase coated wall lets multiple students write and draw at the same time with the freedom to quickly erase and create something new over and over again. This quality is especially useful in-class brainstorming sessions for essay topics, science project ideas, and the like, as the walls’ roominess encourages students to come up with an endless stream of ideas, record them, and then erase and write again in a continuous flow of creativity. In this way, the walls invite naturalness of thinking and the constant discovery of original concepts in both individual students and groups. Then, after a brainstorming session is over, the results of a team’s collective thinking can be gradually erased and whittled down to those ideas that are most achievable or appropriate for the assignment. Finally, the wall can be used to delineate the steps required to put the ideas obtained through brainstorming into action.

Dry Erase Wall Paint

What are the Benefits of Dry Erase Paint?

Fresh Walls

Hi-quality dry erase paint keeps walls looking fresh for ten or more years. Compared to standard flat or semi-gloss indoor wall paint, our premium dry-erase paints are formulated to create a superior satin to semi-gloss finish with minimal glare, allowing users to write or draw as long as they like without experiencing eye strain. Our durable coatings come in two colors, white and clear. They’re designed to create the time-honored whiteboard effect on the coated surface while also maintaining the quality of high erasability, which allows markings made by low-odor dry erase markers to be effortlessly wiped off without smudging or streaking.

It’s important, however, to follow the cleaning and care instructions provided with the product to guarantee that your dry-erase coated surface remains fresh and new-looking for many years to come.

Dry Erase walls = Performance

Premium dry-erase paint can be applied to almost any surface in either the white or clear version. This great flexibility of application allows for the transformation of walls, doors, desktops, room dividers, tabletops, and even ceilings into long-lasting and highly functional dry-erase surfaces. When the application instructions are followed carefully, our top-quality dry-erase surfaces erase exceptionally well and can be further cleaned by light buffing with a microfiber cloth. In fact, with their low-odor, eco-friendly dry erase formula and commercial-grade performance capacity, both our white and clear coatings have been given the highest ratings for erasability and durability of all dry-erase paints on the market today. Quality dry-erase coatings are designed and formulated to last and come with a full ten-year warranty ensuring trouble-free application and use.

Over the last decade, the production of environmentally friendly paints and coatings like ours has made great strides, and this growth has been hastened by advances in performance capabilities and reductions in ingredients that emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are highly hazardous chemicals that cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, nausea, and potential damage to the liver, kidneys, and brain. The main focus in creating new paints and coatings for architectural and industrial use has been on ways to achieve maximum performance levels while still meeting strict VOC and emissions requirements. And environmentally conscious paint companies such as ours are encouraging suppliers to use even more ecologically sound production methods to help reduce damage to the planet.

Ideal for schools, offices, cafeterias, clinics, homes, and other venues, our coatings are exceptionally easy to clean, resist stains, chemicals, and abrasions, feature high-performance capability, and are low in VOCs, which, as mentioned, are unsafe for human health and the environment.

Easy to Erase – Dry Erase

Top-quality dry-erase painted surfaces are large and effortless to erase, making it possible for fresh ideas to keep coming and being replaced by new ones until the ideal solution to a problem or strategy for project implementation is reached. The walls encourage continuous generation and evaluation of original ideas. And after a round of group-free association, the results of a team’s collaborative thinking can readily be narrowed down to the most relevant and operable ideas through the flexibility, size, and easy erasability of a dry-erase painted wall.
A major factor in deciding on the quality of a dry-erase painted surface is how easily it can be erased. In the case of our premium dry-erase surfaces, you can be sure that they’ll always erase easily and wipe off without needing to use your valuable time and energy in scrubbing away streaks or smudge marks. After a perfect installation, you’ll have a smooth, durable surface where all traces of your writing or drawing can be wiped away fast so that you and your team can continue to express your ideas for as long as you like.

Besides being highly efficient, the quality of easy erasability also has other benefits. Physics teacher Dr. Colleen Megowan-Romanowicz has found that students using erasable whiteboards instead of non-erasable flip charts are better at collaborating and prompting others to work with them and share ideas. In her study, students who did problems on flip charts talked with one another mainly before any writing began, possibly because marker ink on flip chart paper is not erasable. Thus, most of the group’s thinking about what was to be presented on the charts stopped before much content was written. This was true despite the fact that the students had been told they could start over on a fresh sheet of paper whenever they liked. In addition, the student who ended up writing on the chart paper was almost always the one who drew the best, had the most legible handwriting, or was most assertive in grabbing the marker. This caused what appeared on the flip chart representations to be these writers’ personal versions of the group’s thinking.

However, a different scenario occurred with the students who used whiteboards. Instead of waiting to write before the group’s thinking was completed, students began writing immediately, starting, stopping, and erasing continuously, and the results that appeared on the board evolved as their discussion evolved. Although some group members didn’t write, many more cases of several students simultaneously writing/drawing on the whiteboard occurred. These results show that due to their erasability, whiteboards stimulate group collaboration in a more active and democratic way than writing on paper, as the students who used the whiteboard didn’t hesitate to think about what to write but jumped in and started writing and erasing right away. So, the work they did evolved dynamically, as they talked continuously during the problem-solving process. And, considering the large surfaces available on dry-erase painted walls, such collaboration would have been even more creative and free-flowing, with larger numbers of students being able to write simultaneously and interact cooperatively on a large wall to solve the problem assigned.

Thus, because of their great size and erasability, dry-erase walls are the perfect media for stimulating unlimited creative thinking and imagining, allowing students, office staff, or family members to express ideas through writing and drawing. On a dry-erase wall, a long series of thoughts and images can be displayed by using the same space over and over again to add and erase in real-time. In this way, participants’ ability to focus in brainstorming sessions, meetings, or conferences can be greatly enhanced. According to a study conducted at Indiana University, the mere act of writing by hand releases creative centers in the brain that are not easily accessed by other means. And the fact that dry-erase painted walls are so easily erased makes writing by hand even more productive since thoughts can keep being written and removed until the writer and team are fully satisfied with the result.

Long-Lasting Dry Erase Paint

With proper upkeep and normal types of wear, our long-lasting premium dry-erase painted surfaces resist yellowing, cracking, and peeling, even under continuous use for many years, and come with an industry-best ten-year warranty from the time of shipping. This ability to endure long uninterrupted use is highly beneficial to both your bottom line and the environment because, for many years, you’ll save money by not having to use alternate media such as flip charts, conventional whiteboards, chalkboards, or electronic devices, all of which are either difficult or impossible to recycle. Thus, installing our coatings in your workplace or home is a highly practical and eco-friendly option.

Vault50.com, an independent online review guide that deals with medical, business, and industrial products and software, supports the view that our coatings last long and work well. The site recently evaluated a number of different varieties, brands, and colors of dry erase coatings and then ranked them based on their formulation properties, warranty, dry-erase finish quality, usability on a surface over time, odor, cost-effectiveness, compatibility with different types of dry erase markers, and recommended drying time. At the conclusion of the study, the site ranked our dry-erase coating as its “Best Dry Erase/Whiteboard Paint for 2021.”

How to Turn a Chalkboard into a Dry-Erase Board

Old school chalkboards produce loads of messy allergy-inducing dust and are difficult to erase and maintain easily. Besides, text and drawings done on chalkboards are often hard to see clearly, especially if the boards haven’t been cleaned recently and old chalk dust has been allowed to collect on the surface. So, if your school or office still has a collection of old-fashioned chalkboards in place, it may be high time to upgrade to more modern, hygienic, and easy-to-use writing surfaces such as dry-erase coated walls.

Chalkboards are Being Phased out around the World
For the past several decades, chalkboards have experienced a steady and rapid decline in worldwide popularity due to the rise of dry-erase and dry-erase coated walls. Nowadays, few people in business, education, medicine, or other fields choose to use traditional chalkboards because they’re messy to use, spread chalk dust around a room when written on, and require continuous cleaning to stay presentable and useful. Also, many people are allergic to chalk dust, and sensitive electronic equipment can easily be damaged if chalk dust flies around a room, gets into the equipment’s casings, and adheres to internal parts such as motherboards and hard drives thus creating the need for costly repairs or replacements. For these reasons, schools, businesses, retail shops, and other establishments are now switching from using chalkboards to using low-maintenance, easily erased, healthy, and eco-friendly dry-erase coated surfaces for writing and drawing.

Steps to Converting Chalkboards into dry-erase Coated Surfaces

To save money and avoid having to remove their bulky, messy chalkboards, many institutions and companies are making the transition to a different writing surface by covering their existing chalkboards with top-quality dry-erase paint. If you wish to do so yourself, just follow the simple steps below, and you’ll have a brand-new writing and drawing canvas that’s durable, affordable, highly writable, easy to maintain, and attractive to the eye.

Chalkboard Surface Preparation

When applying our premium dry-erase paint to walls, proper surface preparation is essential to ensure adequate adhesion, and the same goes for painting chalkboards. Carefully preparing the chalkboard then applying a suitable primer and base coat will provide you with a sturdy, serviceable, and good-looking dry-erase coated surface that will last for ten-plus years of regular use without needing to be replaced.
Before applying a premium dry-erase paint to a chalkboard, we suggest you do the following prep work:

Thoroughly wipe down the surface with a damp microfiber cloth to remove all leftover chalk residue, dirt, and debris that may be present.
Let the chalkboard sit until it’s thoroughly dry to the touch.
Make sure the surface is 100% dust-free, as dust is the main enemy of adequate adhesion.
Carefully cover all the edges of the blackboard frame with masking tape or preferably painter’s tape, which is sturdier and easier to remove after painting without splitting apart.

Applying Dry-Erase Base Paint or a Primer Suitable for Slate

The next step is to apply a coat of base paint like ReMARKableTintable base coating or a coat of good-quality primer to your chalkboard. The goal of applying a primer coat is to seal the surface well because of the highly porous and absorbent nature of the slate used to make chalkboards. Instead of using a separate primer, we highly recommend that you coat the chalkboard with a couple of coats of ReMARKableTintable Base Paint, our top-quality proprietary product that consists of a primer and a base paint in one formula. Thus, you will save time, money, and energy by not having to worry about applying two different products, a primer, and a base coat, and then waiting for the primer to dry before applying the base coat.

• Make Sure Your Primer is Suitable for Use on Slate Surfaces
However, if you choose to use a primer paint other than ReMARKableTintable Base Paint, it’s okay as long as our premium dry-erase coating is not installed directly over the primer. Once the primer has sealed the surface, and the surface is dry, apply two coats of appropriate satin or eggshell water-based enamel. As mentioned above, slate is highly porous by nature, so it needs to be thoroughly covered with a quality primer that can fill all of the microscopic pores on its surface. The paint shop or home improvement store staff where you buy the primer can help you select the appropriate type for use on slate surfaces.

• Apply Painter’s Tape or Masking Tape to the Chalkboard Frame
Before applying the ReMARKableTintable Base Paint or primer, carefully mask the edges of the chalkboard with painter’s tape or masking tape, which needs to be removed two to three hours after the Base Paint or primer is applied. Allow the Tintable Base Paint or primer to dry for at least 24 hours.

Application of the Base Coat and Dry-Erase Coating

Then re-mask the frame of the chalkboard with fresh masking tape or painter’s tape. If you have applied the ReMARKableTintable Base Paint, you can go ahead and install the dry-erase coating after thoroughly mixing Parts A and B of the formula according to the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with your dry-erase painting kit. If you applied a primer made by a different company, you would now need to use a high-quality water-based satin or eggshell base paint before installing the dry-erase coating. In this case, let the base paint dry for at least 24 hours before installing the dry-erase coating. Remove the painter’s tape or masking tape two to three hours after application so the tape doesn’t get embedded in the paint and cause an unsightly, uneven-looking edge.

Drying Time is Short

Your newly coated dry-erase surface will be dry to the touch in just twelve to fourteen hours, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity of the room where it’s been applied. However, it’s recommended that you let the paint dry for a full 48 hours before using it to write or draw on. After the coating has thoroughly cured, use a dry microfiber cloth for erasing, and maintain your dry-erase coated surface through regular cleaning with a damp microfiber cloth. It would be best if you also did periodic wipe-downs with a microfiber cloth dampened with a water-based dry-erase paint cleaner like our eco-friendly proprietary dry-erase cleaner.
The Quick Drying Time Saves both Time and the Environment
The short dry time of our premium dry-erase paint helps you save precious time and energy by allowing you to write and draw on your newly refurbished surface more quickly than you could with low-quality epoxy-based dry-erase paints. In addition, because our eco-friendly paints are virtually odor-free and extremely low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), your team will be able to continue working in the area where the surface is drying, thus eliminating the hassle of moving your office to a temporary location.

Maintenance is Easy

It’s best to use only low-odor dry-erase markers for writing and drawing on your new dry-erase coated surface so it can be easily erased with a microfiber cloth. Also, never use traditional dry-erase board cleaners on the surface and instead apply only a water-based eco-friendly cleaner that’s specially designed for use on dry-erase paints. In this way, you can keep your surface constantly looking good and working perfectly. Spray a little of the eco-friendly cleaner on any stained spots you may notice and wipe the surface down with a microfiber cloth or towel. Then give it another quick wipe-down with a damp cloth. Finally, dry it off with a microfiber cloth, and you’ll be ready to write and draw again on your newly refurbished surface.

Dry-Erase Painted Walls Can Enhance the Quality of Every Room in Your School

Premium ReMARKable dry erase paint is commonly used to transform the drab unused walls of elementary, high school, and college classrooms into an attractive, highly functional writing surfaces for teachers and students to use for lessons and other activities. However, other rooms and areas of a school are often overlooked when it comes to applying quality dry-erase paint; in fact, the paint can easily be used to convert an entire school building into an enhanced educational and communications environment. For example, the principal’s office, the teachers’ lounge, the school cafeteria, the nurse’s office, the music classroom, the art room, the computer room, the library, the gym, and students’ and teachers’ lockers can all become places where top-quality dry erase paint is installed. In this way, virtually every part of a school building can become a place that promotes better learning, interaction, and creativity among administrators, teachers, students, staff, and security personnel alike.

The Principal’s Office

In the principal’s office, a dry-erase wall can serve as a handy place to post teachers’ schedules, academic goals for a semester or year, new curriculum ideas, times for student counseling sessions and parent meetings, ideas for managing the school budget, lists of school supplies to be ordered, maintenance workers’ schedules, and much more. Since principals are responsible for ensuring school security for students, teachers, staff, and visitors, the wall may also be used to brainstorm improvements in security procedures and personnel assignments, as well as an endless number of other activities related to school administration.

When principals meet with parents and teachers to discuss students’ behavior and academic progress, a dry erase wall can serve as an easy-to-use canvas for sharing ideas on helping students improve in these areas. In addition, the wall can be used to list current concerns of parents and community members about school academic policies, athletic teams, extracurricular activities, and the like. When conducting professional development programs and workshops for faculty and staff, the wall can be a place to record ideas for scheduling, creative development of teachers, and new classroom activities.

The Faculty Lounge or Break Room

Teachers typically spend a lot of time prepping bulletin boards in their classrooms, so why not give some TLC to the board in their break room? The area where faculty members take breaks and have lunch is ideal for having a dry-erase painted wall act as a bulletin board and general communications hub. There, teachers can leave notes and reminders for one another, plan lessons together, brainstorm ideas for teachers’ meetings, list break room items to be ordered, post motivational quotes, and more. The door to the faculty lounge can even become a dry erase painted surface for writing items like “the quote of the day,” faculty meeting times, and reminders about upcoming school events.

The School Cafeteria

The cafeteria is an ideal place to have a dry erase wall for listing items such as the daily and/or weekly menu, rules on proper lunchroom etiquette, and state health department guidelines. The vast surface area of a dry erase wall makes it easy to write in large letters to better convey to students the importance of following the rules, and also to allow many lunch menu items and other information to be listed at once in large letters for all to see. In addition, students can write down suggestions for new menu items, reviews of meals, and related ideas.

The School Nurse’s Office

The nurse’s office is an area where the focus is on both the physical well-being of the students and staff and the children’s overall success and life-long achievement. There, a dry erase painted wall can serve as a large space for posting school health guidelines, medical supplies to be ordered, students’ immunization status, referrals for health conditions, and other health-related items, as well as ideas on health and safety awareness, wellness training, healthy eating habits, and more.

The Art Room

Whether it’s used to make doodles and artwork, write inspiring messages to spark creativity, or make preliminary sketches for class art projects, a dry-erase painted wall is an exciting way to perk up a school art room. When students make rough sketches before crafting a finished painting, drawing, or sculpture, they typically waste a lot of paper, causing increased expense for the school and harm to the environment. However, if these sketches are done on a dry erase wall, they can be generated quickly with low-odor markers and then easily erased with a microfiber cloth until an acceptable final sketch is created. Using a marker to draw on the vast canvas of a dry erase wall unleashes spontaneous images more easily than drawing with a pencil on a small piece of paper. When students sketch on a dry erase wall, they feel freer to express their artistic ideas and come up with images that can later be used to fashion finished works of art for class assignments.

The Music Classroom

The music classroom is another ideal place for a dry erase painted wall, as it offers an immense area for creating multiple music staves in less than 15 minutes through the use of a ruler and some 1/8-inch pinstriping available at auto parts stores. Even if a school already has standard five-line music staves in its music room, music teachers might like having a three-line staff for use with first and second graders or staves in different areas of the room that work better for teaching purposes. Music teachers will be amazed at how easy it is to produce the staves with the pinstriping material, and having one or more permanent music staves in the music room will make their lives much easier.

In this way, a dry-erase coated wall offers a space-saving, highly functional addition to a school’s music classroom. The high-quality dry-erase paint produces a tough, attractive writing and drawing surface that resists scratching, staining, and ghosting. And when permanent lines are made on the wall, it saves teachers the hassle of redrawing staff lines each time they erase notes during music lessons.

The Computer Room

Installing dry erase paint on the walls of the school computer room creates a vast area for teachers to write down lesson information when conducting classes, posting rules such as “no food and drink allowed” and “save your data often,” as well as times for using the computer room, and other useful information. In addition, advice on how to use computers, such as which keys to use for PC computer shortcuts, can be written down in large letters on the wall for younger and less tech-savvy students to easily see and study. Another area of the dry-erase wall may be designated for students to write suggestions about improving the computer room, notes to teachers, and the like.

The School Library

Library class time and other time spent in the school library are some of the most important periods of the day in a school’s curriculum, but they often get sidelined and become a secondary priority to course completion and other activities. Installing a dry-erase painted wall in the school library can help to alleviate this problem by helping teachers make library time more exciting for students through class activities involving library use. For example, after a class has read a book, they can create a large “story pyramid” on the dry erase wall using the following structure:

Line 1: One word that gives the main character’s name
Line 2: Two words that describe the main character
Line 3: Three words that describe the story’s setting
Line 4: Four words that state the story’s main problem
Line 5: Five words that describe one main event in the story
Line 6: Six words that describe a second main event
Line 7: Seven words that describe a third event
Line 8: Eight words that provide the solution to the problem.

In this way, the library’s dry erase wall becomes a useful tool for enhancing children’s reading proficiency and interest in reading that can last a lifetime and enhance both their academic and personal growth.
