Today’s Chief Technology Officer is faced with a continually broadening array of diverse responsibilities and challenges that didn’t exist ten or even five years ago. There are very few systems in place across our schools that do not have a primary or secondary connection to technology. This means that our technology leaders must be flexible and adapt to a new normal by ensuring they have the requisite skills and knowledge to succeed in contemporary school districts. If you are in a leadership role in a school district, BOCES, RIC, or at the state, you are likely aware of the changes that have occurred in educational technology over the past decade. Today’s technology leaders need to be visionaries who are able to develop strategic approaches to the design, implementation and support of technology systems. They need to have a deep understanding of the educational environment, professional development, privacy, security, and policy laws, and be well prepared to lead cross functional teams in the decision making process and the implementation of a comprehensive technology plan.. The COSN Certified Educational Technology Leader (CETL) certification helps school district leaders build confidence and awareness of their own capacity to successfully lead in contemporary school systems. Participants in this session will be introduced to the COSN CTO Framework and explore their readiness to lead a contemporary educational technology program. Both Chris Nelson and Sarah Martabano hold the COSN CETL and are experienced contemporary school district leaders. Participants in these sessions will: ● Become familiar with the COSN Leadership Framework ● Perform a skill pre assessment and gap analysis of their own skill and leadership to help identify areas for improvement for themselves and/or their technology team. ● Engage in authentic task based learning activities ● Tour the COSN CETL program materials and certification requirements. ● Develop an action plan for the continuation of their leadership professional development.
