In honor of Earth Day, I’d like to direct your attention to the resources on the Consortium for School Networking’s Green Computing Initiative Web site. There, you can calculate your technology energy use and learn how you could save even more, find resources on where to buy green technologies and how to properly dispose of old technological equipment in an earth-friendly way, as well as tips on how to reduce waste and preserve the natural resources in your area.

In addition, the initiative has recently launched a new, free certification program for tech. administrators who are particularly interested in making healthy environmental choices with the technology in their district.

For more info on green computing and what you can do to reduce your district’s carbon footprint, check out my colleague Michelle Davis’ story on green computing and virtualization.
