Education / Pedagogy / Internal company training material
French term or phrase: le PB
This is a set of slides for an internal training programme. A full sentence is "L’animateur note sur le PB". It appears as "PB" in the "Outils pédagogiques" column for several sections of the training course in question. I am guessing it is an abbreviation for something like whiteboard, blackboard, penboard or flip chart (none of which begin with PB in French, however!) I have Googled it and checked several acronym finders - I have found it in lower case but not expanded. Any ideas welcome - thanks!

paper board
Explanation:
Sheets of paper on a kind of easel, very common in classrooms. It wouldn't surprise me in the least to hear someone say "le paper board" !!

Thanks, that's great. It's not one I've heard before - I always used 'flip chart'. I've been out of the office for too long :-)
