SCHOOL technology resources got the speed dating treatment when teachers from 20 primary and high schools in greater western Sydney converged to share information about the apps they use in class.
Teacher at Hilltop Road Public School in Merrylands, Kate Lavery, was at the event at Quakers Hill Public School on Wednesday.
She shared information on Tellagami, a mobile app that lets you create and share a short animated message and can be used as a presentation tool.
"You can change the background and share it with your class," she said.
Quakers Hill Public School principal Bert Lo Campo said the event gave schools the opportunity to share resources and ideas.
Teachers at separate stations were given three minutes to share information about their chosen apps with individual colleagues before they rotated to the next table in the room.
"Technology is evolving so quickly," he said. "All schools are doing something unique. They're all using different apps and different programs and initiatives. This is about sharing the wealth of knowledge that is within the schools.
"We can't know or buy every app that's out there, and we certainly can't trial every app that's out there, but when we've got 20 schools that are presenting something different, that's 20 ideas you get in one hit."
