Welcome to the Technology 4 Learning team’s Virtual Expo, a virtual space designed for teachers and school executive to explore all the latest edtech and ICT tools for your school.
Usually, we host these events in person, however this term we have taken it online to ensure we can reach every corner of New South Wales!
This is not your typical online event. We have made it in 360 so it is almost as good as being there!
This term your hosts take you for a tour of:
Latest tools on the STEM catalogue
Displays panel technology with Mobile Computers on Wheels (MoCoWs) and Main Learning Displays (MLDs)
More tours will be added regularly!
