What is Digital Convergence?
The District’s Digital Convergence Plan (DCP) is a fundamental evolution of the structure and environment of education in our schools. Educators need to connect with students so that instruction is relevant and engaging. It is the district’s goal to bring together different technologies – mobile devices, interactive whiteboards, streaming media, digital content – to enhance student learning, by increasing student engagement and student technology literacy.

The District’s DCP brings together different technologies – mobile devices, interactive whiteboards, streaming media, digital content – to enhance student learning, by increasing student engagement and student technology literacy.



The Digital Convergence Plan consists of 6 major components:

  • Classroom Infrastructure
  • Digital Content
  • Device Deployment
  • School Technology Purchases
  • Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
  • Professional Development

Classrooms that don’t have interactive and projection technologies will be outfitted with interactive whiteboards and projection systems. Additional digital content will be purchased for classroom instruction and home use. Laptops will be distributed to elementary schools, while tablets will be provided to 7th and 9th grade Social Studies classrooms.  Students in 9th grade World History classes will be provided tablets to take home for the 2014-2015 school year. Professional development will be provided to teachers to hone their technology skills and learn strategies for integrating the new technologies into classroom instruction.
