The CoSN 2016 Annual Conference is almost here! CoSN – the Consortium for School Networking – is the premier professional association for district technology leaders, and their annual conference provides an opportunity for experts from across the country to engage in comprehensive discussions about K-12 education technology.
The 2016 annual conference, taking place from Monday, April 4 to Thursday, April 7 in Washington, DC, will focus on ways that school systems can change their organizational culture to embrace digital options and accelerate success. Cisco will have numerous representatives at CoSN 2016 to join the conversation and share what we’re doing to accelerate K-12 student success using education technology.
Here’s where we’ll be:
- On Monday, April 4, from 8-11 am, Doug Walsten, Cisco Solutions Architect, will be joining a panel of education technology leaders in a Pre-Conference Workshop that will discuss the “Comprehensive Design of Future-Resilient Smart Networks.” Doug was part of the team of school leaders and industry partners that led the effort in the design of the Smart Education Networks By Design (SEND) that will be discussed in this workshop.
- On Tuesday, April 5, from 11:15-11:45 am, Doug Walsten and I are leading a breakout session: “Imagine a Fully Digital School.”
- On Wednesday, April 6, from 8-9 am, I will be part of another great panel, “Beyond the Homework Gap: Infrastructure for Equitable Access.”
If you’re going to be at CoSN 2016, make sure you join us at any of these panels or workshops. We’ll also be at the @InnovationCentral expo at pod #2, so stop by and say hello. And if you couldn’t make it to Washington, DC this year, make sure you follow along at @Cisco_K12Edu and the hashtag #CoSN16 for insights from the panels and from the show floor.
