Phone number: 770.888.3170 ext. 140320Our vision is to use classroom technology to engage students in asking questions and choosing tools to facilitate real world problem solving. Instructional technology has expanded in Forsyth County Schools to include the collaborative classroom components of an interactive whiteboard, classroom computers, a ceiling mounted projector, and sound system.
Electronic whiteboards facilitate active learning not just passive reception of information. In situations where teachers use a whole-class approach, students are more engaged in the lesson when an interactive whiteboard is used. In addition, research shows teachers who have access to an interactive whiteboard are more likely to make creative and varied use of all the resources at their disposal (British Educational Communications and Technology Agency, 2004). Our students are consistently engaged in the learning process through authentic problem solving and design. Each school's wealth of technology resources helps transport students beyond the experiences that have been possible in a traditional classroom.
