Digital Convergence creates a path toward implementing Personalized Learning Environments at scale.

 
 

What is Digital Convergence?

At the district level, Digital Convergence is the successful intersection of five fundamental categories of the education system—Leadership, Instructional Models, Modern Curriculum, Digital Ecosystem, and Professional Learning—redesigning existing infrastructure and resources to support modern learning.

How does Digital Convergence provide value?

Digital Convergence provides long-term, sustainable value by preventing solutions from becoming obsolete for failing to integrate with any one part of the education system. As a methodology backed by a framework, Digital Convergence starts with benchmarking and works toward measurable outcomes so that its value to a district becomes concretely discernible relative to the district's goals.

How do I achieve Digital Convergence?

Digital Convergence is not an end point, rather a state that is continuously changing amid advances in technology and each of the five drivers. The highly dynamic nature of Digital Convergence necessitates that leaders establish an assessment process or framework to measure their progress. Access Modern Teacher's Digital Convergence Framework Assessment.

 

Framework

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.  

Platform

The Framework 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. 
 

Support

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.
