School technology resources got the speed dating treatment at Quakers Hill Public School on Wednesday.
Teachers from 20 primary and high schools in greater western Sydney were stationed at tables in the school's hall and given three minutes to share information about the apps they used in class before their colleagues rotated to the next table in the room.
Quakers Hill Public School principal Bert Lo Campo said the event, co-ordinated by deputy principal Lyndall Droscher, gave schools the opportunity to share resources and ideas.
"Technology is evolving so quickly," he said.
"All schools are doing something unique, they're all using different apps and different programs and initiatives.
"You have schools who have moved into 'bring your own device', you've got our school and Barnier [Public School] who have one tablet for every two children in the school.
"This is about sharing the wealth of knowledge that is within the schools.
"We can't know or buy very 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 the one hit."
Blacktown Boys High School PE teacher Aimee French discovered apps such as Tellegami, used for presentations, and mind-mapping tool Popplet.
"Having an idea of the things that are going on in primary schools helps us to build that knowledge of what they're coming to us with so we can develop that further," Ms French said.
