The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the School Superintendents Association today released a new toolkit designed to help current and aspiring superintendents build their knowledge, skills and confidence as technology leaders for their schools.
Titled “The Empowered Superintendent: Professional Learning Module 1: Five Imperatives for Technology Leadership,” the toolkit covers key themes of sustainable technology leadership. Two related tools, “Self-Assessment for Superintendents” and the “District Leadership Team Assessment,” are aimed at helping district leaders evaluate their progress toward becoming effective technology leaders.
Development of the new toolkit was part of CoSN’s The Empowered Superintendent initiative, and was overseen by a Superintendents Advisory Panel. The panel, co-chaired by Mark Edwards (Mooresville Graded School District, NC) and Terry Grier (Houston ISD), included nearly 20 superintendents from around the country.
