Gearing up for the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) conference this week, I am curious what will be on the minds of the district-level technology leaders. eSchoolNews profiled a CoSN forum which brought together senior technology leaders to discuss how they would build a “Tech Department Dream Team." The panel conversations also highlighted what today's technology leaders view as their top concerns, including:
4. Community Support
6. Changing Mindsets
7. Professional Development
8. Training and Support for Technology Specialists
9. High-Stakes Testing
10. Fractured Leadership
11. Technical Challenges
13. Perceived Value
