Members of Clancy Catholic College’s e-Leader team have explored the educational uses of apps to share with their peers and educators from Sydney Catholic Schools through a video conference.
This was the first student-led discussion and demonstration among schools in the Archdiocese of Sydney, and followed the popular TeachMeet format. Used as a form of teacher professional development, the TeachMeets see teachers share short talks of up to 7 minutes on practical and successful ways to innovate in classrooms.
Clancy’s e-leaders, from Years 7 to 11, hosted the event. Their presentations centred on the different apps available for learning. These included Speakit!, and presentation tools emaze, Nearpod and Kahoot.
“We wanted to explore a wide variety of programs that can help students in educational and personal use so we’re specialising in different apps and programs” said Year 10 student Isabella Gagliano.
“It was a real privilege to be able to present this to so many schools and people. It makes you feel good about yourself when you can actually teach someone and help them to discover a new way of learning.”
