CoSN’s Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO is comprised of three primary professional categories in the education technology field: Leadership & Vision, Understanding the Educational Environment, and Managing Technology & Support Resources.  Each of these categories includes 10 essential skill areas, outlining the responsibilities and knowledge needed to be a viable educational technology leader. Each of these skills and the related knowledge needed to demonstrate them are included in CoSN’s Certified Education Technology Leader (CETL®) certification exam.
Note: Course developers do not have access to the CETL® Exam under accreditation standards. Thus, this course instead focuses on the skills required to become a successful tech leader. This course and the CETL® Exam are based on the CoSN Framework of Essential Skills. 

This course meets online every *Thursday from Oct 1st – Dec 10th, 2024, from 4:00- 5:30 PM ET.
*Sessions are recorded if you are unable to make an individual session.
