VSTE is the state chapter of CoSN. The VSTE CoSN Council provides professional development of interest to school divisios technology and instruction leaders.
CoSN sponsors the CETL Certification. Becoming a Certified Education Technology Leader demonstrates to your staff, superintendent, and other stakeholders that you have mastered the knowledge and skills needed to define the vision for and successfully build 21st century learning environments in your school district.
Tim Tillman, Director of Technology and Learning at Colonial Heights Public Schools, is a recently certified leader. He believes the certification has made him a better leader:
When I found out there was a certification that could prove I had the foundation of knowledge to succeed as a K-12 technology leader, I knew it was something I wanted. Although the CETL was relatively unknown to my district and surrounding region, I wanted something that I could use to support my authority and leadership. Studying for the certification helped me realize the weaknesses in my experience and education. I was then able to take corrective action to be well rounded and exhibit the skills required. I am grateful for this certification and worked hard to be a CETL. It was worth it!
