2013 was all about touch, both touchscreen mobile devices for students and teachers, as well
as touchscreens for learning spaces. At the start of the year everyone was talking iPads vs Android
but we also saw the arrival of Win 8 and Surface. Chromebooks were another revelation for
schools and looking forward to 2014, rumours abound of a touchscreen option for the new Acer
C720 Chromebook. Read about Chromebooks on pg 10.
2013 also witnessed the first significant sales of touchscreens for learning spaces. Some schools are still putting in Flat Panel
Displays but with the price of a reasonably sized touchscreen falling to as little as $2K+ there are now more options to
consider. Read more about how to decide what is the right solution for your school on pg 4-6.
These two shifts, the increasing numbers of devices in the classroom
and the improved quality (HD) of the classroom display device have had
knock-on effects. Firstly, schools want to be able to connect multiple
devices simultaneously to the one classroom display to foster
collaboration and the exchange of information. We have seen all our
suppliers shift to meet this need and this is discussed on pg 12. In 2014
we expect the collaborative software, apps and hardware to
incorporate even more features of benefit to education.
Secondly, teachers and students want to take full advantage of their high
definition screens and the visualiser has become a must have item to
showcase student work, experiments and activities. Particularly exciting for
2014 is the Tabcam, a visualiser that will work with iPads, Android or Win 8
tablets, freeing both the visualiser and the teacher from the front of the
class to wonder around showcasing and capturing the different work of
individuals and groups. Read more on pg 9.
We have continued to see the radio station and science
trolleys roll out, almost all of these attracting funding from
charitable trusts. You can read more about two schools who
started their journeys this year on pgs 22 and 23, and if you
haven’t already, make sure you download your funding
application forms from
Lastly we at Sitech Systems NZ continue to work with numerous schools tailoring projector and sound installations to meet
your needs. Just as with other technologies, new gizmos and gadgets come out all the time to improve AV quality. Drive racks
probably had the biggest impact on our installations in 2013, drastically improving the quality of audio. Read more about this
on pg 32. In 2014 we expect wireless data projectors (featured on pg 30) to be the projector of choice for most halls and
learning centres, allowing multiple devices to connect wirelessly and simultaneously.

Flat Panel Displays
● The economics: New data projectors have come a long way with lamp life expectancy of 4-6000 hours and run time of 3-5
years. However life of a panel is over 10 years. Factor in built in sound and reduced installation costs and the panel will win.
● Quality of image: true HD
● Light: cope better with light classrooms
● Larger screens available: 60” plus screens are far more affordable today
● Mobility/flexibility: build it into a trolley or teaching station and make it work with your modern learning environment.
Things to think about:
● Wall Mounting vs Mobile
● What size?
● Sound
● LCD, LED or Plasma
● Touch or Non-Touch
● How “smart” does it
need to be?

Touch Learning Interfaces
You’ve already been convinced of the benefits of a flat panel over a data projector. Why pay more to be able to touch the screen?
Value for money: today it is not significantly more expensive to get a touchscreen over a flat panel.
Expectation: society is embracing touch technologies, and so are our students. Adding touch is essentially future proofing
your investment.
Collaboration: most touchscreens are multi-user, meaning two or more groups of students can interact simultaneously,
creating opportunity for discussion, and that other great motivator – competition!
Interaction: touchscreens come with powerful software that support teaching and learning, they are not simply
presentation devices but with professional development can be engaging learning interfaces
Integration: essential for use with ipads and tablets, not only can you plug in your devices to create a huge interactive ipad
or tablet, but they also can come with software or hardware that can connect all of your devices to each other and the
screen* (see page 13).
*Bundled version of Displaynote is a one-connection presenter license but includes a 28 day whole class trial

Cross Curricula: Visualisers
3 Reasons Why You Can’t Teach Without a Visualiser
1) Secondary - Flipping Your Classroom
Watch a
If you want to capture yourself “doing” something, a visualiser is the ideal solution. The beauty of the
visualiser is the ease with which you can capture live teaching, those key bite-sized chunks of learning that
students may want to revisit. Just press a record button and it will create a video with audio of whatever
you or the students are doing. Andrew Riccardi of Waimea College is an advocate of the flipped classroom
and uses a visualiser to capture maths tutorials .
2) Just in Time Teaching
Put anything and everything under the visualiser and examine it on your big screen, capture photos of it,
talk about it and video it – big books, flora and fauna, student work. Read about how visualisers are used
at Palmerston North Boys’ High here

3) And like a bottle of wine it just keeps getting better
Update the software and access new features with every update. In 2013 Text to Speech arrived and OCR text recognition enabling
you to capture text and convert it into digital format. Andrew Riccardi from Waimea College shared his latest discovery: using his
visualiser and free software called Gradecam he is quickly and easily marking multiple choice tests and importing the results into
the student management system.

AVer TabCam
TabCam enhances mobile, digital curriculum
As a wireless streaming camera, TabCam captures and broadcasts live, physical
classroom content to your iPad, Android Tablet or PC/MAC Laptop in real-time. It also
keeps your mobile device mobile, able to move anywhere in the room without having
to be near it. The tablet app and software package then takes that real content and
enables students to fully interact and engage with the content in a way that is both
familiar and captivating to them.
Present and create rich, full lessons
Present live video of anything, from anywhere in your room, while annotating,
highlighting and manipulating the content from your tablet or laptop without being
tethered to the camera. Present student or group work from one end of the room while
interacting with the content for another group elsewhere. Add supporting content such
as images or video from other sources to strengthen the lesson, include alternative
solutions, and more.
Don't forget it, record it!
The rich lessons you create with TabCam do not have to be forgotten. TabCam will record
your entire lesson to be available for flipping your classroom, review, absent students,
substitute teachers and more. All of your live video, audio, annotation, highlights, and
supporting content are captured and saved even as you move from element to element.
Blended, Flipped and Interdisciplinary
TabCam not only digitizes content for Blended Learning, but can instantly
share recorded lessons to DropBox, YouTube, Facebook, even your classroom
management site to support Flipped concepts. Furthermore, interdisciplinary
curriculum can be created, recorded and shared between subjects.

Cross-Curricula - Bring Your Own Browser - Connectivity
Bring Your Own Device / Bring Your Own Browser – Ensuring Collaboration
Many schools are now looking to simultaneously connect multiple devices to a display device and ideally to each other for group
work. As always there are a number of solutions available. Here is the low down but please contact us to discuss the solution that
will work best for you.
Interactive Whiteboards - eInstruction Workspace Connect
If you are looking to connect to an interactive whiteboard there are apps around for most
brands of IWB but only some will connect multiple devices. Workspace Connect is an app
that runs with eInstruction boards and Mobis and can let 9 tablets/iPads work
simultaneously. This image shows an interactive whiteboard divided into nine with each
iPad controlling a section. Access the free Workspace Connect app at your App store.
See pg 5 for more information on eInstruction Mobis.
Any display device - software solution - DisplayNote
A powerful software solution is available which releases you from the whole propriety brand issue. It will work with all presentation
devices, no matter the make of interactive whiteboard, data projector or panel. It is called DisplayNote and allows you to connect
as many devices as you wish. You can share your computer with all the devices in the room, and students can annotate and make
their own notes and save them. Or you can share the content from a student device to the whole room and perhaps one of the
most exciting features, you can put students into small groups and they can work together on the same activity on their tablets.
Watch a video and check out DisplayNote on page 13.
Data Projectors and Panels
If you are connecting to a data projector, again it depends on the brand but some will allow more than one device to connect.
Panasonic has software available called Wireless Manager. Screen images from multiple computers can be projected by using MultiLive mode. The teacher can see a thumbnail of each and select one to look at or can divide the screen into four and stream live from
all the devices, great for comparison.
Alternatively there is an app available for Panasonic wireless data projectors and panels with built-in wireless or with an additional
wireless dongle The advantage of these types of software solutions over the IWB apps is
that you are not restricted to the IWB software but rather can engage with a variety of media.
Any display device - hardware solution - Crestron AirMedia
Alternatively there is a hardware solution that frees you from the brand issue, the Crestron AirMedia. This allows 32 devices to
connect and 4 to display simultaneously. As with all of the above it works over your wireless LAN with a free app for mobile devices.
You can even enable remote viewing and stream your class over the web to other rooms. See below for more information.
Crestron AirMedia
With AirMedia™ anyone can walk into a room and wirelessly
present PowerPoint®, Excel®, Word and PDF documents, as well
as photos, on the room display from their personal iOS® or

any device fast and easy.

This 4-person Infrared Headphone set is designed for use with
classroom based computer programs (Mac and Windows
compatible) and is ideal for reading and language

3) Differentiated Listening Activities
It is easy for classrooms with numerous tablets / MP3 players to set up differentiated listening activities. But for those who aren’t so
fortunate Easi-Ears is the answer. Easi-Ears enables teachers to drag audio files onto one or more of six wireless headset units using
software on their computer. The headsets are all different colours so that each student can identify their headset and can control
their own audio, repeating, pausing and moving to the next track using the controls on the side of the headset. A remote control
unit enables a teacher to intervene as required, cut in and broadcast announcements and instructions. And best of all for the littlies,
the headset will start to play as soon as you put it on and pause for up to 20 minutes if they are removed. And students can go
anywhere so nature trails and treasure hunts become an option, with students creating their own content. The world literally is your

Cross-Curricula - Classroom Sound
Use your property grants to ensure ALL your students can hear
“The board of trustees can use the property grant to install classroom sound field systems. These systems distribute the
teacher’s voice throughout the classroom (via speakers) and can benefit a number of students by improving the level of the
teacher’s voice relative to background noise at the student’s location in the classroom.”

Case Study - Chapman College, Rotorua
Pamela Meyer, mother to a student at Chapman College in Rotorua contacted us
because her son was having difficulty hearing his teacher in a typical noisy NZ
classroom. He is deaf in his right ear and as pedagogy shifts to a more open, engaging
and discursive classroom environment many such children are struggling to keep
pace. She had heard about the Redcat and after visiting St Mary’s School in Rotorua
which also uses Redcats she decided to purchase one for the school for her son’s
classroom. We did a follow up visit and not only was the student overjoyed but his
teacher was also very impressed. He found that it had resulted in a quieter classroom
overall as he was not having to raise his voice to get attention and he wasn’t
expending precious energy projecting his voice. It proved to be a very positive
addition to the school’s senior classroom.

Science Trolley
Sitech System’s Science
• Build excitement and passion for science
• Let children discover the world around them
• Bring science into the 21st century
"We need to improve the way we teach science to our young
children to help them succeed in an economy increasingly based on
knowledge and innovation," ERO chief review officer Dr Graham
Less than a third of schools have effective science programmes for Year 5
to 8 students, according to the Education Review Office. Sitech Systems
NZ wants to help: we have designed a trolley to provide all the equipment,
funding application templates to help you win funding and a training
programme to support teachers.
Sitech Systems' Science Trolley is a treasure chest of science resources and lesson ideas. Suitable for
primary and intermediate students this portable workstation can be easily manoeuvred around rooms and
contains all students and teachers will need to host numerous science investigations across the curriculum.
Video Demo
Ohope Beach
Anthony Hall, Principal of Ohope Beach School downloaded and completed
the funding application form and sent it off to the Lion’s Foundation. The
school was successful and received their science trolley at the start of term
3, 2013 and we at Sitech witnessed one of the most successful integrations
of the science trolley into teaching practice that we have ever seen. There
were strong foundations with the school expecting its Enviroschool’s gold
award in early 2014 but they also had a strategy to get it up and running
straight away, embedding it into a sand dune reclamation project.
Here’s their top tips:
All staff attended the free intro session provided by Sitech Systems NZ
This was supplemented by the Ministry of Education’s PLD facilitator
They devoted three staff meetings to using the trolley
They divided their year groups into a mix of Yr1-8 and introduced the trolley to the
They had an inquiry planned for the whole term that would mean that the trolley was
immediately used for context-based research, not isolated experiments
They made laminated cards with simple step by step instructions on using the visualiser
and microscope and attached these to the trolley
The office lady is responsible for re-ordering resources and they keep a book attached to
the trolley for teachers to make a note when something runs out
Classes currently use it as they need it but they are discussing a booking system

Tony talks about how the science trolley has added a whole new dimension to their research capabilities and staff love the
convenience of having all the resources in one place. The school is already planning on acquiring another one for when they go twostorey. And the students? We met Indie 7, Thomas 8, Emi 7 and Sophie K 7 who all described how to use the equipment and the
research that they had undertaken, using all the correct terminology. Experts already!

Cross Curricula: Radio Station
for Attracting Grants!
Radio Station Package
Parakai Pulse 107.4FM
Although our radio station package has attracted many grants, Parakai School’s
radio station has by far the best story. Prefects at Kristin School in Albany run a
fund raising community project each year. Not only do they raise the money but
they also get hands on in making the dream come true.
The waiting room/planning area
This year Parakai School were the lucky project
selected. The Kristin School students held a
quiz night in May and raised $17K from a silent
auction. Way more than you need for our
radio station package but it meant that they
could do it in style! They renovated two spare
offices, turning one into the studio and the
other into a planning and guest waiting area.
The students organised all the trades people,
did all the hard work that they could and by
August they were ready for a handing over
ceremony and an official opening.
The radio station went live at the school’s gala day in September. The school did
their own preparation too. A student committee was formed from Year 6 and 7
students and they visited Mangere East School to get some ideas on running the
station. They soon identified that although great at organising, there might be
better DJ’s in the school body so on the week of Sitech’s follow up visit they were
conducting interviews. They have put together a programme that includes music,
news bulletins, community notices, sharing student work, guest speakers and
sports commentary.

Student Committee: Blake Dobbin, Jamie Allen, Taine
Mansell-Flay, Michael Williams, Madison Adolph and

Future plans: Principal Sean Valvoi was originally inspired by the Te Reo radio programme running at Te Akau Ki Papamoa School
and will integrate a similar language programme across the Parakai Pulse airwaves. Also in the pipeline are community broadcasts in
the evening.
This school has also taken advantage of some of our new
features for the radio station including the outdoor
speakers. These were an integral part of the gala day,
allowing the principal to commentate via a wireless mic
through the radio station broadcasting over the airwaves
and direct into the school grounds. With over a hundred
radio stations operating across the country we continue
to be astounded by the learning potential they offer. And
in the words of the Parakai Student Committee it is

Wireless Microphone Upgrades
Are you aware that your existing Wireless Microphone System may need replacing? Or that your Wireless Portable PA may
need to be upgraded?
The government is selling off the frequency spectrum which your Wireless Microphone and Portable PA system may be currently
operating on and it will be illegal to use them from the 1st January 2015. If your current system is operating between 694–
820MHz, it will need to be replaced. If you own a Mipro system, then you can identify the operating frequency band by the
sticker displayed on your wireless microphone receiver. If your system operates on the 7D band, or you have a different system
operating between 694-820MHz, then your wireless mic system will need replacing. In the case of Mipro Portable PA systems,
some can up upgraded simply by replacing the receiver module and mic transmitter.

Disaster Management in Schools
The Ministry of Education provides a disaster management template. Key to the plan is the need to communicate with staff and
students. Since the Christchurch earthquakes and other recent disasters we have frequently been asked to provide solutions
that support teaching and learning but also disaster management. For schools wishing to communicate with students in the
event of an evacuation they are a number of options dependent on number of students / size of evacuation point.

from the first day by using one finger chords. They are also always ready to play, there is no cleaning or sterilising any part of the
instrument and now that tuners are so cheap, have a student tune them before your session, so you are ready to sit down and
teach, play and have fun with students and ukuleles.

Data Projector Installations
Data projectors
Data projectors still have their place and we continue to see exciting uses for them as the technology develops.
Ultra-Short throw data projectors: a case study at Auckland Museum
“Moana – My Ocean” Exhibit
Auckland Museum Exhibition Developer Victoria Travers explained, “Our goal was to ensure that visitors understand that the ocean
is essential to human life and that they appreciate and understand the ocean’s biodiversity. This presented us with a few logistical
challenges when deciding how to display the many components in the Moana – My Ocean exhibit, in particular The Boil Up
installation which involved 270-degree projection.”
The Boil Up is one installation for the Moana – My Ocean project where visitors are immersed in a Hauraki Gulf Boil Up. The
experience was developed using artificial intelligence, and is a realtime living system which allows visitor to explore the behavioural
patterns at play during a Hauraki Gulf Boil-Up.
Travers explained, “The experience is contained
in a circular theatre and is made up of a 270degree screen. With this in mind we knew we
would need four projectors to achieve our goal
and to make the experience truly immersive.
Finding projectors that were extremely shortthrow and that provide a great image when
used in a multi-channel environment was a real
challenge that thankfully was eventually met by
Sony’s VPL-SW535 (ultra-short throw)
The short-throw was required due to the nature
of the space but also to ensure that visitors
didn’t interrupt the projection or cast shadows.
In addition the Moana – My Ocean team were
concerned about the short throw angle and how
reflected light from the screen may cause hotspotting and light scattering in the blend
Travers concluded, “We had some real issues to overcome and it was a major problem finding a solution from many of the
companies offering short throw projectors, despite looking at a number of models. When all were evaluated properly the Sony VPLSW535 ultra short throw projectors offered the best solution and great value for money too. I’m also delighted to say that once
installed, the Sony VPL-SW535 projectors truly did an excellent job.”
In addition to the ultra-short throw projectors the Moana – My Ocean exhibit also makes use of multiple Sony VPL-FX35 large venue
installation projectors due to their ease of installation flexibility and hassle-free maintenance, VPL-FH36 projectors that provide
ultra-high quality images with WUXGA resolution and full HD compatibility and a variety of high-end Sony Bravia display panels.

School Halls - Sound Installations
Installations - Hall Sound Systems
We highly recommend a consultation with one of our sound installation specialists. However prior to the meeting it can help to
work through this list of considerations below.
What is the sound system going to be used for?
The requirements for speech reinforcement such as daily assemblies and light vocals are different to those for production and loud
music (disco) and instruments. Your speakers need to have high frequency drivers to give the speaker clarity and to enable easily
heard voice reproduction. Heavy bass is not a requirement for good speech reproduction. When schools think about it 90% of what
they do is speech reinforcement.
Consider the physicality
● What is the size and shape and characteristics of the hall?
● What is the ceiling height?
● Are the walls straight or do pillars and beams protrude from them?
● Is there a mezzanine floor that protrudes into the hall space?
● Which area is recognised as the “front of the stage”?
● Does the stage have a proscenium arch?
● Is the hall a hard surface building (concrete blocks, hard floors, non-acoustic tiles)?
● Can you get under the floor for cabling?
All of these factors have implications for your sound system.
Location of speakers
We select the best type of speaker based on your above answers. Ideally they should be in the centre of hall in a cluster. Speakers
should not be to the rear of the audience or opposing, so if a cluster is not possible we usually put a couple in front of the stage
pointing out and a couple halfway down pointing in the same direction. You are more likely to need four if there are low ceilings.
Location of the control system
Is there an area available for all the control components that is easily accessible to the hall? Staff and students often want the
controls for the sound system in the stage area but then they cannot hear what the audience is hearing. Controls should always be
somewhere near the middle. If this is not practical, look for a room or cupboard at the back of the hall, or put a hole in the wall or a
lockable cabinet in the rear of the hall.
Microphones – how many and what type?
What type of microphones do you require, wireless or cabled? If you are unsure, we generally recommend two handheld radio mics
and two fixed handhelds. Mic stands (only $60 approx each) stop people speaking right into the mic and drastically improve the
audio quality. The speaker then needs to be 150mm away from mic and we set the settings to suit this. Do you want to use specialist
mics such as hanging mics or shotgun mics? This will enable you to pick up a number of students so is ideal for choirs and
productions. Two of them will often do a whole stage.
How many inputs do you require on the mixer?
These are just some of the questions that need to be answered before a suitable system can be installed. And be careful! There
are many installed sound systems in NZ schools that do not work properly because they are too complicated, we aim to keep it as
simple as we can.
New technologies
Drive racks are the latest addition to our sound installations and we keep in on top of all of these and take advantage of them for
you. These make systems easier to use and reduce feedback. They make it easy to do things like hide a mic in a prop during a
production and not risk feedback.
Drive Rack PA Plus Powered Speaker Optimizer
The DriveRack PA PLus Powered Speaker Optimizer has everything you need to get the most out of your stereo powered speaker
system. It even includes stereo or mono subwoofer support. With the included dbx M2 measurement mic, Auto-EQ corrects for
audible deficiencies in the room environment. Our patented Advanced Feedback Suppression (AFS™) kills nasty feedback, allowing
problem-free operation at higher sound levels, while the Subharmonic Synthesizer™ extends bass response for enhanced bottom

PENS Digital Signage Solution
Panasonic Electronic Noticeboard for schools
With teachers and students juggling busy academic and extra-curricular activities, the last thing you
need is for someone to miss an important message. Rather than sending paper notes with students,
or waiting until the next assembly or staff meeting, PADS Electronic Noticeboard for Schools (PENS)
lets admin and teaching staff send important and urgent messages with a few clicks of the mouse.
By linking the admin office, classrooms and noticeboards around the school, the PENS system is a
cost-effective way to cut out the time and frustration of sharing urgent or important messages.
In the office
From a very familiar interface, notices can be sent to teachers’ computers or directly to display screens around the school. You can
be very specific about where messages are displayed – send it to particular people or screens, departments or blocks of classrooms,
so you’re not cluttering everyone up with irrelevant information.
In the classroom
Using our simple Desktop Viewer, teachers will be able to see when new notices have been added by other staff members. A small,
unobtrusive pop-up will appear in the bottom of their computer screen without interrupting their class in the way a messenger
would. At an appropriate time, the teacher can review the messages, and easily share them with the class by displaying it on the
room’s projector or screen.
PENS doesn’t just let you choose where each notice is sent or displayed. With
the simple scheduling system you can also choose when the notices are
displayed and for how long – display tuck shop specials just before lunch,
remind students about tomorrow’s mufti-day just before the students leave, or
keep displaying a uniform rule every morning for a week. Just plan the days or
the week’s notices, then forget about them. Using a simple electronic form,
teachers will also be able to simply and easily send out their own messages to
specific blocks, departments, classrooms or screens around school.
Whether it’s cancelling
swimming practice, reminding
students about auditions for
the school production or
congratulating the winning
softball team, PENS is an easy,
fast and timely way to
Frequently PENS can simply pull the data from your existing management systems
or RSS feeds.
Disaster Management
In the event of an emergency, PENS can be an invaluable communications tool.
Notices can be set to take over teachers’ computers and the display screens around
the school to direct students in a drill or real fire, or gather the entire school
together for an emergency assembly, quickly and simply.
