CoSN Small District Technology Leadership Wiki
, 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 2006when 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 resourceand 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.

It's one of the most consistent patterns in the unviverse. What causes it?
- Spinning discs are everywhere – just look at our solar system, the rings of Saturn, and all the spiral galaxies in the universe.
- Spinning discs are the result of two things: The force of gravity and a phenomenon in physics called the conservation of angular momentum.
- Gravity brings matter together; the closer the matter gets, the more it accelerates – much like an ice skater who spins faster and faster the closer their arms get to their body. Then, this spinning cloud collapses due to up and down and diagonal collisions that cancel each other out until the only motion they have in common is the spin – and voila: A flat disc.
