Mastering the Digital Convergence Framework
The US public education system finds itself at a crossroads. Two decades after classrooms became connected online, the traditional education model can no longer deliver the American dream. Only by establishing modern learning environments can school districts serve their most important purpose: equipping graduates with the skills needed to compete in the twenty-first century. For district leaders, this critical transition means overcoming a status quo a hundred years in the making.
In Wisdom and Influence, bestselling author Dr. Shawn K. Smith explores the most advanced challenge and solution for educational leaders trying to institutionalize the modern learning environment. The book explores the enduring quest toward twenty-first-century education, calling on leaders to navigate the often-murky waters of power and influence in the Digital Convergence Framework, while offering readers guidance on how to accomplish this feat.
