Whiteboard winners

Tourism students have netted Doncaster College £500 for their use of a Magic Whiteboard.

The College finished joint in the competition in which organisations demonstrated innovative ways of using the Magic Whiteboard.

The cabin crew students stuck the new invention – as seen on BBC’s Dragon’s Den programme – onto the fuselage of a plane at Doncaster’s Aviation Academy at Robin Hood Airport, where the College teaches many aviation related subjects.

Students used the whiteboard for training purposes as they turned the cabin of the Boeing 727 fuselage into a classroom.

Magic Whiteboard is a cheaper, less bulky and environmentally friendly alternative to flipcharts and can be transported and used almost anywhere. The idea was backed by Dragons Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden last year.

Gill Parkes, the College’s Director of the Academy of Service Industries said “both students and staff had great fun finding a variety of ways of using the magic whiteboard. It has proved to be a very useful teaching tool.

“The money is to be spent of an off site planning day for the teaching team to help them come up with even more innovative and exciting ways of teaching travel and tourism students.”
