I am going to brag about a couple of our School Technology Leadership alumni in this post.
- The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) recently unveiled its free Value of Investment (VOI) tool, which allows school leaders "to better articulate the costs and benefits of proposed technology projects." In the eSchoolNews article about the new tool, Keith Krueger, the Executive Director of CoSN, said that the VOI initiative is one of the most important things that CoSN has ever done. Dr. Bob Gulick, who is a database administrator and technology trainer for the Parma City (OH) School District, was a member of our first-ever School Technology Leadership cohort. Bob helped CoSN design and create the VOI tool. Awesome work, Bob!
I love it when I can highlight some of the nifty things our unbelievably talented alumni are doing!
