    Dorm Room Hacks: The #1 Dorm Room Essential You Need This Semester

    College can be hectic enough as it is, especially if you’re a freshman. It’s your first year away from home, you have to share a dorm with a stranger, and you don’t really know what you’re doing (it’s OK; no one does their freshmen year).

    So, freshmen, you need all the dorm room hacks you can get! Don’t worry – Think Board is here to help. We’ve listed our favorite dorm room hacks, used with the help of the Think Board, to keep your semester running smoothly.

    Think Board Dorm Room Hacks to Get You Through This Semester

    Keep A Calendar on Display

    Classes. Exams. Football Games. Social Events. Internships. Work. There’s always so much going on in college, and if you’re a freshman, it could take some getting used to such a busy schedule. The easiest solution? Stay on top of the game by writing down all of your events, classes, exams, etc. on a calendar that you view every day. The Think Board dry-erase calendar will help you keep your busy life on track.

    Write It Down

    Did you know that you’re 75% more likely to remember something if you write it down? Notes, equations, definitions – whatever it is you need to remember, the Think Board can help! Place the Think Board on your wall or desk, and draw out your math problems or formulas for more practice and a higher chance of remembering the material you’ve written down. That upcoming exam stands no chance against you!

    Stay Motivated

    We know how easy it can be to get discouraged at some points in the semester, especially around midterms and final exams. It may seem a little cheesy, but writing down simple motivational quotes where you can see them every day (cough, cough, on the Think Board) can make a HUGE difference. Thank us later.

    Fun Fact: Think Board Was Invented to Be One of The Ultimate Dorm Room Hacks

    You’ll never guess where the Think Board was invented – in a dorm room! That’s right, Think Board’s creator, Hanson Grant, invented the Think Board his sophomore year in college because he simply needed a space to write down his ideas and stay organized from week to week.

    Just like other dorms, Hanson wasn’t allowed to drill holes in the wall to set up a massive whiteboard, and wasn’t allowed to paint his walls with whiteboard paint. The solution? The Think Board: a clear dry-erase film that was easy to install, looked great and worked like a charm.

    The Best Back to School Gift for Teachers and Students

    The Best Back to School Gift for Teachers and Students

    Back to school, back to school!

    Most gifts for teachers are way overdone: apples, rulers... boring! The same goes for students; pencil, paper... yawn. The simplest and easiest solution? Think Boards! They're easy to install, customizable and a unique gift for students and teachers! 

    What is Think Board?

    Think Board is a clear, removable panel that turns any surface into a dry erase canvas, and is perfect for any teacher, student and highly creative person. 

    Hanson Grant is the founder of Think Board, a Mass Challenge Finalist, senior at Babson College, and one of Boston’s Top 25 Innovators Under 25. As a sophomore at Babson, he set out to reinvent the whiteboard.

    How Think Board Was Born

    All Grant needed was a space to write down his ideas, but papers get lost, whiteboards are too bulky, and dry erase paints are too expensive. Most people use large writing spaces for collaboration and expansive ideation, but current solutions are limited. That is whereThink Board comes in.

    Think Board is a clear film that turns any smooth surface into a dry-erase board. Think Board’s vision is to provide students, parents, innovators and entrepreneurs a new thinking space; by allowing them to turn any existing surface into a dry erase canvas for creativity!

    So, what makes Think Board different? Think Board is nearly invisible, which allows users to turn an existing surface into a dry erase canvas, without sacrificing the appearance of the room or office.

    With the help of digital printing, we can even personalize and customize Think Boards, with any logo, graph, or name. With this technology we have the ability to penetrate new markets that no dry erase provider has in the past.

    Think Board is currently focusing its time, energy and resources into education. Students of all ages love using it – whether in their room to practice math problems, or in their dorm room to organize their busy lives.

    We have done a number of tests proving that using Think Board can increase efficiency and effectiveness in a classroom or at home. The physical connection made between hand and pen, versus hand and keyboard allows for better memorization and enhanced creativity.

    Think Board has seen a large percentage of sales coming from college students, as well as mothers and fathers of grade school children. Students are finally excited to begin their work in class on their desk, or at home on their personal Think Board. We have been seeing parents putting Think Boards all over the house. The most popular places include their child’s wall, desk, playroom, or even refrigerator for a family shopping list or calendar.

    The most exciting part of focusing on students of all ages is receiving feedback from the customers to see how they are using Think Board in their own unique way. One kind mother wrote to us saying the following:

    “My daughter loves her Think Board. She is running her own little dance class on our second floor landing. Brilliant!”

    Think Board is not going to stop here; the company’s goal is to overlay Think Boards onto every school desk across the country. Think Board School Desks are in ten schools around New England at the moment, and the demand is rapidly increasing.

    Teachers are stating how students run to their desks during the beginning of class to start their in-class assignments. Students enjoy the opportunity of writing on their desk, being creative, and receiving immediate feedback from their peers or teacher.

    High performing students can write at an accelerated pace, while students who need support receive it in real time and can repeat activities as needed. The teacher is able to circulate and respond to multiple students in a time efficient manner. The traditional paper and pencil model requires collection, grading and returning of papers.

    Students get far more writing practice using Think Boards and are able to receive critical face-to-face feedback and support from peers and the teacher, which is lacking in paper-pencil model.


    Think Board on the Today Show.

    With so much potential at home and in the classroom, Think Board is in search of a corporate benefactor to help sponsor this program and make Think Board School Desks affordable in every school district. Until then, Think Board will continue focus on getting the product into the hands of as many students as possible.

    4 Best Productivity Tips for Organizing Your Work Life

    4 Best Productivity Tips for Organizing Your Work Life

    As exams slowly approach, many students are looking for ways to study, stay organized and stay focused. It's important to stay on task while increasing the productivity of work or school, but also important to have a little fun! 

    1. Writing Down Notes and Ideas 

    It's proven that writing down your notes and ideas help you not only remember the content better, but also allows you to have a new space to analyze and work through any problems you may have.

    Working through mathematical problems on whiteboards can help you see what is going on from step to step. Similarly, trying to list advantages and disadvantages of options you are presented with can help make a decision much easier.

    2. Make Lists 

    One of the best ways to increase your productivity is to make lists. Lists can help you internalize thoughts as well as remember them in an organized fashion. In the process of creating a list, you may find that often times you can remember what was on it without even looking.

    The cognitive science behind handwriting proves that writing trumps typing 100% of the time. Whether you're just trying to write down a list of groceries, or making a list of terms for your next exam, Think Board can help! 

    3. Map Out Your Thoughts 

    With Think Board, it's easy to map out all of your thoughts and organize them in a similar way to which your brain does. By writing all of your ideas and thoughts on a whiteboard, you are able to compartmentalize information much more efficiently and productively. Get creative, and organize like no other! 

    4. Go Explore: Don't Stay in One Room 

    Another perk to having a Think Board is being able to place it wherever you want. Whether you want one in your office, in your room, in the kitchen, or your desk, you can put a Think Board to any indoor, smooth surface!

    If you place your whiteboard somewhere where you see it every day, you are constantly being reminded of the content it contains, making it easier to remember. 

    Whether you're a college student looking for something to motivate you and boost your productivity, or a professional in the business world trying to stay organized and on top of your work, Think Board is the secret ingredient you've been looking for to achieve success.
