Course Description

The education technology field is a unique profession. CTOs must:

  • Understand the educational environment
  • Know how technology enhances the student’s educational experience
  • Play an active role in the school district’s long-term strategic and operational goals

But while technology has had a transformative impact on our society, the influence of technology to improve and innovate learning in our nation’s schools has not kept up. To resolve this gap, CoSN identified the knowledge and skills education technology leaders need and developed the Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO. The CETL examination will test existing and aspiring education technology leaders on their mastery of these skills. 

The materials are designed to prepare leaders for the CoSN CETL® examination and designation. Each module includes "To Do" exercises, "Reflection Questions" to help you gauge your understanding of the specific skill area, and an "Extending Your Study" section with suggestions for additional information.

Learning Outcomes

After you complete the exam preparation material, you should be prepared to take and pass the examination. The exam pass rate will never be 100%, but the site, which like the exam is aligned with the Frameworkoffers you the best possible preparation.
