ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Dougherty County Board of Education Wednesday approved forming the new position of Instructional Specialists, to put more technology into the classrooms.

Six teachers will fill the new positions,  to instruct the other teachers how to best use the white screen art technology equipment in their classrooms.

615 classrooms in Dougherty County have the white screen technology, that allows teachers to interact with students. Saying today's students learn more quickly with technology, Dougherty County hopes to use federal funding to put the equipment in every classroom.

Executive Director Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Dianne Daniels said  "We have to introduce early on, from elementary all the way through high school, the necessary components,so that once they enter into the real world, they can apply what they have learned."

David Maschke was the only board member voting against the Instructional Specialists positions, saying the six teachers were needed more in the classrooms.
