Forsyth BYOT One-Day Tour: Showcasing Student Work

Our schools take pride in showcasing student work in the halls for other students, parents, visitors, and colleagues to enjoy.  What better way to take that practice to the next level than by adding video or audio to enhance the visual representation.  During our BYOT tour QR codes often accompanied posted student work.  Even though there are signs that give you an idea of what you’ll find by scanning the code, it’s a little like opening a surprise gift because you never know what you’ll see, hear, or read.   Here are a few examples of what we experienced, along with the content from the QR code.
