Washington, DC (April 17, 2012) – The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) will commence its 2012 Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Clinics on April 26-27 at the Ball University Center in Indianapolis, IN. First in the series of six clinics held in conjunction with CoSN state chapters nationwide, the Indiana clinic is themed, “Reimagine Learning: How we can create a participatory culture that engages students and enhances education.” Designed as in-depth professional development events for district-level technology decision makers, attendees of the clinics will hear about emerging technology trends, receive up-to-date information on using technology to create effective learning environments, and network with peers and the private sector.

“Technology leadership in school systems is critical if we are to enable learning that prepares children for today and tomorrow,” said CoSN CEO Keith Krueger. “CTOs, regardless of their title, need to understand the leadership skills needed to succeed. The CTO Clinics provide in-depth, peer-to-peer learning that simply isn’t available anywhere else.”
