The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) has created a new online resource designed to help technology leaders in small school districts. Called the Small School District Technology Leadership wiki, the site allows users not only to learn from there sources provided by CoSN and other sources, but also to contribute to the site by adding their own best practices, tips, strategies, case studies, and resources. “CoSN recognizes that technology leadership concerns and needs of small districts are typically impacted by a different set of resource, personnel, and even expertise constraints than are experienced in larger or medium-sized districts,” said Keith Krueger, CoSN’s chief executive. “The content found on the CoSN wiki may prove useful for any district but is particularly focused on the specific needs and challenges of small school districts.” The wiki aims to help with systematic technology planning for school districts with student populations of 2,500 or less in particular. Of the more than 14,000 school districts in the United States, nearly 75 percent have student populations of less than 2,500, CoSN says.
