Over the past few years, I mentioned several times to Keith Krueger, CEO of the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), 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, CoSN!
P.S. Join Keith and me later today for an online chat about PK-12 technology leadership.
