Interactive Whiteboards have revolutionized classrooms and businesses in multiple industries. In classrooms, they have been used to foster collaboration thus increasing interactivity in the classroom and improving students’ learning experiences. In the business setting, whiteboards have become an integral part of boardroom presentations, training, and group discussion sessions. When using technology, maintenance is a key determinant of the device’s longevity. Maintenance of technological devices ensures that it is in proper working condition for a long time thereby extending the life span.
The screen on the interactive whiteboard is the most important part of the whiteboard and is susceptible to damage and dent. The board normally comes with interactive pens that enable you to write, move, erase, and control applications by touching and writing or making selections. The touch recognition features of the board also allow you to write, erase with your palm and move objects with your finger without having to press buttons, access on-screen menus, and functions.
Here are a few tips that will help you in maintaining your interactive whiteboard:
Preventive Maintenance Tips
On a regular basis, schedule a cleaning procedure where you use the dry eraser to clean the whiteboard exhaustively to ensure its surface remains smooth and clean. Dry erasers can be found in any office supply store.
Spray alcohol-free glass cleaner into a soft rag to wipe off any that remain from regular cleaning or those that remain for a day or longer.
Removing Permanent Marker Ink
In cases where a permanent marker is used on the interactive whiteboard, scribble over any permanent marker on the board with a dry erase marker. Sometimes, the dry marker ink will dissolve permanent ink marks and allow you to wipe it off. When it doesn’t wipe off, then you can use isopropyl alcohol to remove permanent ink. Soak a small amount of the alcohol on a piece of cloth or rag and rub off the marks in a circular motion. Care should be taken when using alcohol on the device because alcohol tends to damage the soft coating on the board when it is used too much or when it is exposed to alcohol for an extended period.
Cleaning the Sensor
The interactive pens used to write on the board use sensors to interact with the board. When they stop functioning, it might be due to some dust accumulation. Simply use canned or pressurized air to remove dust particles.
