Academic staff are finding new ways to use online digital technology to teach calculations.

Murray Elder will explain why we need to hand-write  calculations and enable students to hand-write in breakout whiteboard rooms.

As well as how (his “hacks”) some of these tools can be used with an iPad, iPen and an online whiteboard in order to teach students calculations online. However, even without an iPad and iPen, Murray is sure others will find good ways to do it.

Who should attend this session?

Subject coordinators and other teaching staff wanting to teach mathematical calculations online.

Professional staff are welcome to attend this session.

What will you learn?

During this session, you will be shown:

• Why teaching calculations with a whiteboard tool is much better than Powerpoint.
• Hardware suggestions: tablet/stylus/iPad/iPen
• Software suggestions
• Common obstacles to teaching calculations online
• Student feedback and benefits of teaching calculation online


Murray Elder, Science

Murray will demo how he utilises an iPad & iPen  in combination with digital whiteboards & screen recording for his lectures and tutorials.

David Yeats, LX.lab

As co-facilitator, David will be there as moderator to answer questions and collect advice on how the LX.lab can support you to teach calculations online
