FCS Breaking Barriers Chat #4its

The ITS will be facilitating the Breaking Barriers Technology Site Visit.  Instead of a “live” chat, we can tweet out our experiences to #fcstour as well as to #4its.  If you take some great photos, tweet those out too, especially for the activities occurring on Friday, March 8!

Forsyth County Schools will be hosting its own conference  called Breaking Barriers  – Technology Site Visit this week on March 6-8.  The event will include hands-on professional learning activities at the Forsyth Conference Center and site visits to Coal Mountain Elementary School, Kelly Mill Elementary School, Whitlow Elementary School, Otwell Middle School, Forsyth Central High School, Almon C. Hill Center, and the Forsyth County Board of Education and Professional Development Center.  Visit the Breaking Barriers wiki for more information about these activities. Throughout the event, we are welcoming all of our attendees and participants to discuss their experiences in Twitter at #fcstour.

On Friday, March 8, we will have several opportunities for ITS (#4its) chat as the ITS facilitate learning experiences at the Forsyth Conference Center.  Here is the agenda for that day:
