Exactly, Lika.  The word is relatively new (1991?), and it's used the UK and Australia.  I haven't heard it among American educators, but that doesn't mean that it's not used in the USA too.  By the way, it's also written chalk face and chalkface.  The original meaning is a place where chalk can be found, such as the face of a cliff.
