Smile WEBINAR: Supporting Secondary maths through digital technologies, Wednesday 20 August, 3.45 – 4.45pm

Audience: Junior Secondary teachers

Please note | Descriptor change: Have you considered Flipping your Maths program? A Flipped Maths program rethinks how and when maths instruction can take place, thus potentially changing the role of the teacher in the classroom. This workshop will give a background to Flipped Maths programs, give examples of the ways in which Flipped videos can be produced, options for incorporating these into your maths program and student voice regarding their experience with Flipped videos. Guest presenter: Angela Stensness (Papamoa College).

This webinar is supported by a thread in the e-Learning in Primary maths group. You're invited to come and share your own experiences during the webinar. Please feel free to add your thoughts in this discussion post also.

Prior to the day

You will need to ensure your computer is ready to launch a desktop application to view this workshop in Blackboard Collaborate (formerly called Elluminate). If you have already used Blackboard Collaborate before, you will not need to do the following.

Step 1:

Please go to Blackboard Collaborate First Time Users/Checking system requirements and see if you have the green tick. If you do, congratulations you may move to the next part of the set up. If you see the red cross you need to follow the instructions to download Java Web Start.

If you are unable to do this, please contact your own technical support people immediately. If you can download it and the red cross changes to a green tick, then it's time to move onto the next step.

Step 2:

Join the Configuration Room to test your connection and configure your audio. To view the hardware and software pre-requisites for Blackboard Collaborate, please visit www.elluminate.com/support


We recommend you login from at least 3pm to give yourself time to trouble shoot. Contact your admin support in the first instance if you are having issues. It is recommended you wear a set of headphones, headsets or echo cancellation microphone/speakers to help avoid any sound issues. Please feel free to contact Tessa prior to 27 May, if you have any queries.

Please note: Any technical set-up to access Blackboard Collaborate, needs to be sorted by your organisation's technical support team well before this time. 

We look forward to connecting with you during this time.
