CoSN2022: Excitement Builds for the In-Person Event Highlighting Digital Innovation

K–12 education and technology leaders will meet in Nashville, Tenn., to discuss student success in today’s learning environment.

After two years of online-only experiences, attendees can come together in person for the Consortium of School Networking’s 2022 conference in Nashville, Tenn., April 11-13.

CoSN2022, which will also offer a selection of uniquely virtual sessions, will feature panels and workshops that evoke this year’s conference theme: “Amplifying the Power of One.” Speakers will discuss how one action, one voice or one community can beneficially impact K–12 students in a technology-driven education model.

Three keynote speakers — Raj Adusumilli, assistant superintendent and CIO of Arlington (Va.) Public Schools; Jessica Rosenworcel, chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission; and Michael Hinojosa, superintendent of Dallas Independent School District — will share stories of leadership and equity in a digitally transformed learning environment in their keynote address, “Leadership Matters.”
