"Earning the Certified Education Technology Leader certification demonstrates a commitment to bringing 21st century learning to our nation’s schools," said Keith Krueger, CAE, chief executive officer of CoSN. “Because of the CETL recertification requirements, certified leaders pledge to stay current in this ever-changing field of education technology."
To become certified, the candidate must have demonstrated experience in the education technology field and pass a comprehensive two-part examination based on the 10 skill areas in CoSN’s Framework of Essential Skills of the K-12 CTO. Once the CETL certification is earned, the ed tech professional must complete 60 hours of professional development activities every three years to maintain the designation.
"Matthew Mayo is an integral part of our district. He is knowledgeable regarding curriculum and instruction, as well as cutting-edge technology. He consistently finds new ways of supporting students, staff members, and the central office team," said Dr. Valerie Bridges, ECPS Superintendent.
The CETL certification is awarded by CoSN. Founded in 1992, CoSN is the premier professional association for school system technology leaders and its mission is to empower educational leaders to leverage technology to realize engaging learning environments. CoSN is committed to providing the leadership, community, and advocacy tools essential for the success of these leaders.
