Instructional Technology Specialists
The Forsyth County vision for Instructional Technology Specialists is to transform, support and personalize learning for teachers and students using technology.
Instructional Technology Specialists (ITS) provide on-site and on-demand assistance for fellow teachers to create different forms of learning and teaching with the help of technologies. ITS strive to enhance student learning by leading teachers in the application and best practices of established and emerging tools. When ITS are carefully chosen and utilized properly, they can be more effective in helping teachers integrate technology into daily teaching and learning than any other form of professional development. The purpose of the ITS is to provide assistance to teachers with the integration of technology, support curriculum development as it relates to instructional technology, and train teachers to use technology in the most appropriate and effective manner. When choosing an ITS, an administrator should use the standards, qualifications, and attributes listed below as a guide. These standards and elements are derived from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Coaches
Our classrooms consist:
- 10 Chromebooks for students use

To encourage current and engaging lessons our teachers and students also have access to a class set of iPads and Chromebook carts. Teachers often incorporate these devices when they are using blended and personalized learning strategies that focus on their students' passions and interests.
