October brings a chill to the air in Wisconsin, and another deadline nipping at our heels. Oct. 30 is the final day for CoSN members to submit nominations for two particularly notable awards, the Withrow CTO Award and the TEAM Award. Nominees for these awards are not required to be CoSN members. (kj4rvif5bn)
Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) is the premier professional association for school district technology leaders. The organization helps these leaders use technology effectively to enhance instruction and knowledge-sharing in the classroom.
The Withrow CTO Award for educators is given annually to someone who has been a strong advocate for education technology in K-12 schools, whether they have served in a school, or elsewhere in the education industry. The TEAM Award recognizes strong group leadership in applying technology to education in bold, new ways, through work either at a school or at an outside business.
Nominees are judged on the following criteria:
- their leadership,
- their work toward community development,
- the innovative and effective means by which they have applied technology in education,
- the influence their work has had, and
- the relationships, with the public and/or private sector, their work has fostered, as well as the service to education that these partnerships provide.
Winners will be notified in January, and honored at the CoSN Annual Conference, March 14-16, 2011, in New Orleans. For more information about the Conference, click here.
