Clarksville, TN – For more than a century, quiet students have suffered from a common phobia known as “board shyness.” They keep their eyes down and hope the teacher picks someone else to write on the board at the front of the classroom.
“You want students to come up to the board to work, to become more confident in their knowledge,” Dr. Bob Shelton,associate professor of chemistry, said. “Some suffer from board shyness. They’re scared of what they’re about to write. We can overcome that with some of the iPad apps that allow them to work from their seat. Then, through the technology that we have, they can project their answers so that the entire class can see it and learn from it.”
