CoSN Small District Technology Leadership Wiki

Over the past few years, I mentioned several times to Keith Krueger, CEO of the Consortium for School Networking


, that CoSN was a great organization for larger districts that had CTOs or CIOs that

supervised large staffs but that technology coordinators in smaller districts

didn’t really have an organization that represented their interests. Keith

rightfully replied that many of CoSN’s resources (which are superb in my

opinion) also were relevant and applicable to smaller districts’ needs. I

concurred but still wished that there was an organization that better

represented these folks. As I

noted way back in August 2006

when my readership was about 12 people, there

really isn’t a national association that represents the majority of people in

these positions like there is for principals, teachers, counselors, school

business officials, etc.

Although my desire for an organization that comprehensively represents

technology coordinators has yet to be fulfilled, in November 2007 CoSN unveiled its Small School

District Technology Leadership Wiki

. I can’t take any credit for this, of course, but I’m delighted. The wiki is chock full of information

for technology leaders in smaller districts and, of course, can be edited and

expanded by others. I encourage you to check out this

fantastic resource

and to contribute and make it even better. Thanks,


P.S. Join Keith and me later today for an online

chat about PK-12 technology leadership
