Robbins selected for National Council on Digital Convergence

May 20, 2019

Superintendent Dr. Shane Robbins Kershaw County School District (KCSD) Superintendent Shane Robbins has been selected as one of the 12 school district leaders to serve on the National Council on Digital Convergence.

“I look forward to serving with other educational leaders from across the nation as we improve our academic performance through digital convergence, which is when multiple components of the education system unify to form a greater whole,” Robbins said. “This will help us prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s workplace.”

Founded in 2016, the Council is comprised of a cross-section of K-12 administrators with expertise and passion for helping schools transition from traditional classrooms to modern learning environments.

A Modern Teacher-sponsored initiative, the Council’s mission is to leverage the voices of its members to collect feedback from the field and raise awareness of the need for digital convergence, determine and promote best practices and recognize, and reward school districts that are progressing on their paths toward digital convergence.

Individuals are selected for the Council because they have played pivotal roles as leaders developing modern learning environments within their districts and throughout the country. The Mount Vernon Community School Corporation—led by Robbins prior to his coming to Kershaw County in July of 2018—recently completed Stage 3 in the Modern Teacher Framework. In the past three months of initial work, KCSD has advanced from Stage 1.0 to 1.9 in the Framework.
