The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and its Texas state affiliate chapter, The Texas K-12 CTO Council, are honored to support the work of current and aspiring superintendents and district leadership teams in leading all aspects of digital learning transformations.

Last month we focused on effective professional learning and the need for a coordinated leadership strategy when planning and delivering professional learning experiences within a school district. CoSN’s one-page guide for school leaders on effective professional development offers school leaders three critical guidelines for professional learning that improve classroom practice and also presents an overview of the essential factors school leaders must consider when planning for and evaluating professional learning.

This month we examine the strategies necessary for leading digital learning with an emphasis on succeeding with 1:1 implementations. CoSN’s Leadership for Digital Learning Critical Issues Guide provides – in a concise, single-page format – an itemized check list for each of the four main systems (human and technological) that need to be properly established when implementing 1:1 technology for learning initiatives.

CoSN, in partnership with, hosts The EmpowerED Superintendent monthly webinar series on topics that are essential for all educators engaged in leading digital transformations. The focus of the January 13, 2020, webinar (4 p.m. CT) is on “Leading Digital Learning: Successful Strategies for 1:1 Implementations.” Four superintendents who are recognized as technology leaders in their field will share what it takes to successfully deploy, implement, and sustain a commitment to digital learning. Each will share the “why” behind their successful technology initiatives. Learn more and register for this free webinar as well as access recordings of previously broadcast CoSN/edWeb webinars at
