Washington, DC (July 29, 2013) – The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) today announced that New York is the association’s 16th state chapter nationwide. Led by the New York State Association for Computers and Technology in Education (NYSCATE), the new chapter is charged with advancing the role of district technology leadership and transformative learning environments across the state.

“From the Finger Lakes to the Adirondacks to the ‘Big Apple’ region, New York adds a far-reaching voice and consortia of proven district leadership to our state-level membership,” said Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN. “Combining our advocacy efforts with the vision set forth by the New York Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Council, we will work closely with New York school system leaders to harness technology to make it an everyday part of the teaching and learning experience. We look forward to extending our reach into the ‘Empire State.’”
