Vertical Non-Permanent Surfaces (VPNS) [...]

VPNS is a catch-all name for pedagogies which involve students working at the edges of the classroom uses vertical non-permanent surfaces such as portable whiteboards. The idea is it improves visibility to the teacher, who can watch as work progresses, allows for transfer of knowledge around the room, reduces the stress of “permanent” writing, and encourage students to learn from the examples of others.

There is at least a nod here to the Monitorial System, at least in regards to room organization.
