The Need

The Need


K-12 education needs a methodology for
achieving personalized learning.


The accelerated rate of technological change is surpassing the industry’s ability to adapt - preventing schools from realizing the potential of personalized learning and digital technology. In response, district leaders are turning to immediate, near-sighted solutions that fail to meet the needs of their district and provide any long-term benefit. Given these challenges, district leaders need a revolutionary approach, a methodology, to keep K-12 education at the leading edge of technological advancement in order to best prepare 21st century students.

The Framework gives you a birds-eye view of work focus across your district and allows you to manage your change initiatives by providing measurable results. 



The Digital Convergence Framework guides districts through seven Stages across five categories. Districts begin with a self-assessment to determine their starting point and work in partnership with Modern Teacher to progress through their customized path toward Digital Convergence. Your district will track progress against our success indicators and your own customized metrics.  


The Framework and National Network is housed in a cloud-based Platform that connects administrators, principals and teachers with the strategy, know-how and metrics to effectively move a district toward its goals. Administrators collaborate and track district progress, while teachers engage with a series of professional learning experiences with personalized and blended coaching in each district.  


Strategy Sessions leverage your district leadership team to create a personalized Digital Convergence plan. Your plan is continually supported by Modern Teacher Concierge Services, including conference calls, webinars, and account management to ensure success. Instructional Coaches or Lead Teachers receive additional training to help support all teachers.
