In celebration of CoSN’s 30th Anniversary, we have established a new award program, Impact 30, to identify EdTech Leaders who are currently making a difference for schools across the nation today, but who we also see as the influencers for the next 30 years.

CoSN reached out to members across the country to have them nominate EdTech leaders who are making a difference with vision towards the future. In our search for Impact 30 Leaders, we looked at key projects and accomplishments that had a significant impact, their vision for transforming K-12 education to meet the needs of the future of learning, and the top lessons they had learned that every new EdTech leader should know.

Below are the 16 incredible EdTech Leaders from education and business were selected as CoSN’s 2023 class of Impact 30 Awardees.
