We heard you!  Large districts have unique challenges.  NEW this fall, CoSN has created a new event for the edtech community. The Great Minds Series!

CoSN has offered large district workshops in the past, and every one of them has given us the opportunity to connect with peers, learn and innovate with new solutions. The value of these workshops is priceless because it’s hard to find like-minded leaders in our edtech community to help us make quantum leaps in how students learn, educators educate, and technology leaders lead. This is one of the most effective ways to strategize, design, and collaborate in our edtech leadership journey.

In this series, you will get the chance to participate in 4 interactive virtual discussions of 90 minutes each. We will meet once a month starting this September through December 2021.

We need the best and most creative minds (you) to help pave the way in thought leadership to incubate and drive innovative practices as we move forward.  Let us be that catalyst for change in the K-12 community.

The cost to be a part of this series is nominal.   Registration for CoSN Members is $199 and for Non-Members is $299. Group Registration (unlimited number of participants) is $299, and non-members institutions is $449. Worried you might not be able to be present on all the series dates? Don’t worry; there will also be interactive podcats available to you and the wider edtech community.

Edtech leaders are part of a greater ecosystem, and we won’t be effective without strategic partnerships. Content experts from ClassLink, Google for Education, Education Networks of America (ENA)/Catchon, CDW.G, ContentKeeper, Clever,  and Filewave will listen, learn and share their experiences. They will not promote their products and services, but they will be there because they need to hear our challenges and help us develop new solutions.
