CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking) is the premier professional association for school system technology leaders. CoSN provides thought leadership resources, community, best practices and advocacy tools to help leaders succeed in the digital transformation. CoSN represents over 13 million students in school districts nationwide and continues to grow as a powerful and influential voice in K-12 education.
Technology is an essential element of learning, yet the use and application of it is inequitable.
CoSN is a community of visionary technology leaders empowering every learner to achieve their unique potential in a changing world.
CoSN provides current and aspiring education technology leaders for PreK-12 with the community, knowledge and professional development they need to create and grow engaging learning environments.
The health and safety of our community is our #1 priority. In the last few weeks, CoSN has taken the following measures to ensure that it’s staff, partners, and the larger edtech community-at-large were not only protected but informed:
- CoSN2020 was transformed from an in-person event to a virtual conference (more information below and on cosnconference.org)
- CoSN has implemented a remote-work policy for its employees. Staff is still working hard to serve its members, but now from a safe-distance
- CoSN staff and project directors are working on resources to help guide district leaders and their staff through this difficult process, including a newly released document on preparing to take your schools online
- CoSN is working with its corporate partners and vendors to provide members with the most up-to-date access and guidance on what they’re doing to help alleviate the technology strain school systems nationwide are feeling as they prepare for distance learning
