CoSN events are designed to engage technology leaders in topics specific to common challenges, emerging trends, and best practices. They also provide opportunities for individuals to network and share ideas with peers, companies, and presenters. Join us to see first-hand what makes CoSN so unique.

CTO Clinics®

Delivered in conjunction with CoSN state chapters, CTO Clinics serve as local professional development conferences. Registration is free for at least one person from each current member organization; reduced member rates apply for additional attendees.

CTO Forums

CTO Leadership Forums are held twice a year (at CoSN's and ISTE's Annual Conferences) and provide opportunities for technology directors to keep up-to-date on best practices. CTO Forums are free, but registration is required.

Feedback Focus Groups

District CTOs, Superintendents, Curriculum Directors and Instructional Leaders choose programs, solutions, and products to make a positive impact on student achievement, access, and district-wide operations and services. In this Feedback Forum, we’ll ask CTOs what kinds of support they need and expect from their technology and content vendors to make decisions, evaluate potential impacts, and fulfill their commitments for accountability and performance. We’ll ask about the role of case studies, longitudinal and secondary research. We’ll talk through the evaluation of “impact” at each stage of the buying and implementation cycles. We’ll get the inside story about the ways technology, service, and content providers can continually communicate and prove the impacts of their products to retain customers and we’ll hear first-hand how district leaders and innovators define and use “impact” to support their planning, purchasing and strategic decisions. 

Next Feedback Focus Group: Hot Topics. Cool Conversation. The CoSN/SIIA Feedback Forum at ISTE 2018. - Wednesday, June 25, 7:30am-9:00am at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. Chicago, Illnois.

Join your edtech colleagues for breakfast and fast-paced look at the hot topics for the year ahead. A panel of CTOs will tackle a lightening round of topics, ranging from innovation and new solutions to new challenges and mitiagation strategues around cybersecurity. We'll shine some light on the things that continue to "keep them up at night" as they lead their institutions forward in making digital leaps. It's great way to start the ISTE 2018 conference.
