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 factor that can help explain the religiosity gap.
- Sociologists have long observed a gap between the religiosity of men and women.
- A recent study used data from several national surveys to compare religiosity, risk-taking preferences and demographic information among more than 20,000 American adolescents.
- The results suggest that risk-taking preferences might partly explain the gender differences in religiosity.
