In response to COVID-19, the CoSN Board made the decision on March 11 to transform CoSN2020 to a virtual conference, CoSN2020: A Breakthrough Virtual Experience. Transitioning the conference to a virtual setting was a complex decision. First and foremost, this was done with consideration for our registrants’ safety based on official health recommendations and the newly established District of Columbia health guidance. And second, it was based on the understanding of what school system leaders are facing in their own community, including preparation for e-Learning, endless meetings, and local district policies restricting travel.

We are in a moment of rapid and profound change. Artificial Intelligence and other technologies provide new opportunities for learning and school operations while stretching the expectations of technology leaders. How do we embrace mindsets to lead through this change? How do we move from break/fix operational support to implementing a strategic vision? How can responsible technology leadership shape hearts and minds? CoSN2020 -- Breakthrough Mindsets: Leading Meaningful Change -- explores transformational technology leadership that positively changes the trajectory of our students and impact learning.
The CoSN Annual Conference includes 3 plenary sessions, dozens of breakout sessions, additional workshops, and pre- and post-conference events designed to maximize professional development for your entire school district team. Our conference environment enables a personalized and authentic learning environment with an emphasis on peer-to-peer sharing and networking. Content at a CoSN Conference is rooted in this team-oriented approach, so we encourage you to bring your school district team.
