Letter from the Director

Welcome to the 25th Annual TIE Conference! Welcome to the 25th annual TIE Conference. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have you participate in the region’s largest professional development event for educators. I encourage you to engage fully in all the conference has to offer – nationallyrecognized keynote speakers, stimulating breakout sessions, a technology-rich exhibit hall, fabulous prizes and much, much more. TIE 2011 reflects the finest in education/government/business partnerships. Through cooperation and collaboration with schools, professional education organizations, the South Dakota Department of Education and technology vendors, TIE leaders have shaped an event that helps participants discover the potential of sound technology integration for all learners. The result is a conference that features a wealth of relevant technology-related information for today’s schools and communities. The enthusiasm and commitment of TIE 2011 partners is reflected in the breadth and depth of conference activities. TIE Twitters and we invite you to join in the conversation. You can find a Twitter TIE-torial here http://xrl.us/twitterattie. You can follow all the happenings at TIE when you follow the #TIE11 Twitter hashtag. On Monday evening you are invited to a “big screen” premier of TIE’s latest DVD production, Digital Citizenship: Breaking the Culture of Mean. Please join us at the Elks Theatre in downtown Rapid City from 5:30 to 6:30pm for a viewing and a panel discussion. At the conclusion of a great TIE Conference, attendees are energized and anxious to bring ideas and strategies back to the classroom. Often we have so many good ideas, we lose track of them. This year conference resources from presentations will be posted on the TIE Conference Ning http://tieconference.ning.com. We’ve encouraged presenters to post presentations, handouts and links so that you can easily access them after you return home. Thanks go to a host of people, organizations and agencies for the success of this event. Also, as the Director of TIE, I offer a special thanks to the TIE staff members that work diligently throughout the year to ensure that the TIE conference is a powerful and productive experience for participants. Sincerely,

Dr. Julie Mathiesen TIE Director

Technology in Education - What’s Changed, What Hasn’t Rushton Hurley & Ken Shelton

Technology has unleashed a torrent of possibilities for teaching and learning, but our being effective requires us to know the difference between what’s really changed and what hasn’t. If the interpersonal connection between teacher and student is that which enables powerful learning in a classroom, certain questions can shape how we build our lessons. To what degree do students trust that we care about their strengths and weaknesses? Does their opinion of our abilities decide the degree to which they will pay attention? Are we rising above their expectations of predictability for our classes? And finally, can technology help us address these questions productively? Don’t miss the thoughts on these questions from two far-from-boring teachers who refuse to stop learning.

About Rushton Hurley Rushton has been a Japanese language teacher, a principal of an online high school, a teacher trainer, an educational technology researcher, and a school reform consultant who has worked and studied on three continents. He is now director of an educational nonprofit called Next Vista for Learning, which houses a free library of videos by and for teachers and students. Rushton has trained teachers around the country, presenting at national and regional conferences. His fun and thoughtful talks center on the connection between engaging learning and useful, affordable technology, as well as professional perspectives of teachers.

Sunday, April 3

6:45 - 8:00 pm

Learn more about Rushton at www.nextvista.org.

About Ken Shelton Ken holds a M.A. in Education, with a specialization in New Media Design and Production. He has worked as an educator for 8 years and currently teaches technology at the middle school level. He has earned teaching credentials in both Social Studies and Technology Education. As a part of his active involvement within the Educational Technology community, Ken is a Google Certified Teacher, an Apple Distinguished Educator, a Discovery STAR Educator, and serves on the board for the Computer Using Educators Los Angeles affiliate (CUELA).

Teaching in the Digital Age

Change the way you teach to better align to the research about how the students of today learn.

Acceptable Use Policies 2.0 Alpine Room Panelists: Dave Barker - Platte County School District, Julie Ertz - Associated School Boards of SD, Lisa Tolliver, Wagner School District. Moderator: John Swanson, TIE What is acceptable use of technology in a 21st Century school district? The increasing use of Web 2.0 applications and mobile technologies is causing school districts to reconsider their current Acceptable Use Policies (AUPs). A key challenge facing districts is how to identify policies and procedures which are restrictive enough to promote Internet safety but permissive enough to capitalize on the value of these new technologies to improve teaching and learning. This panel discussion will explore how some school districts are responding to that challenge. A list of resources for assisting districts in transitioning their AUPs into RUPs (Responsible Use Policies) will also be shared. Administrators Pre-K to 16 Interpersonal/Collaboration / Leadership

Invention & Creative Problem-Solving in the Elementary Classroom: STEM Enrichment Programs from Invent Now, Inc. Room 206 Susan Clarke - Invent Now, Inc. Discover a new approach to STEM education in the elementary classroom that weaves science content into a crosscurriculum theme while meeting curriculum standards. Invention can be used as the springboard to teach required academic content as well as 21st century learning skills. Engaging the child in small-group problem-solving captures his interest in the subject matter while giving him the opportunity to work on other real-life skills such as teamwork, decision-making, and drawing inferences. The create/recreate process encourages risk-taking and learning from failure, while the creative problem-solving process parallels the steps of the scientific method and allows children to actually become scientists by coming up with ideas, testing, evaluating results, revising, and testing again. Participants will receive a brief overview of Camp Invention and Club Invention, elementary outreach programs offered by the non-profit Invent Now, Inc. in partnership with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. These STEM enrichment programs are hosted by your school, with local teachers paid to present our curriculum. Everything is provided, including curriculum, materials, staff training and salaries, liability insurance, etc. Participants will try a hands-on activity from our INNOVATE curriculum.

After review, the AdvancEd/NCA team identified a need for the West Central School District to improve both the “quality” and “quantity” of technology in the district. In response to this feedback, we took aggressive measures to improve the application of technology to support teaching and learning. Additional amounts have budgeted for the use of technology, including a 1-to-1 initiative at the high school, multiple Promethean boards at all levels, and a large dose of professional development for all staff. This development has focused not only on the use of applications on the computers but also integration of these applications into the curriculum.

Salon D - Holiday Inn Chris Link - Platte County School District #2 As a teacher of Social Studies, the opportunity for integrating technology into project-based units of study was not only feasible, but advantageous for students in my American History class. Through the use of IMovie, IDVD, the internet, visits to local historical sites in our area, and shared excitement by both students and myself, the approach to learning and teaching the era of the Great Depression took on a whole new look. Students were responsible for gathering research, refining their topic, writing scripts, creating movie footage using green screen technology and actual historical clips, and laying down sound tracks. Once the groundwork was completed, the students then created the actual movie using IMovie. The movie was fine-tuned and then burned onto a DVD.

Art and the Web: Studio Courses in Online Environments Alpine Room Bradley Hesser & Thomas Jones- Dakota State University We are currently looking at a continued trend in moving traditional courses to an online environment. More and more degrees are being offered solely at a distance. At DSU, we have many programs that are solely offered in an online environment. This brings us to offering studio art courses in an online format. Studio art courses require one-on-one interaction from painting to drawing, and finally into the creation of computer graphics. We, as faculty, have been saddled with the task of modifying and creating content for these online courses. Through the past 6 years we have been working to develop and implement many strategies to solve this problem. Along the path we have encountered many problems and feel we can provide solutions to many of the current problems. Classroom Teachers 9 to 16 Innovation/Creativity / Emerging Technology

Breaking the Space Time Continuum: Making Achievement the Constant Salon D - Holiday Inn Dr. Julie Mathiesen - TIE For far too long the constant variables in the student educational experience have been space and time – “you will learn history in this classroom setting for 50 minutes a day for 9 months”.

A variety of technologies are now available that allow us to make space and time the variable – we can strive to make achievement the constant.

School 2.0: Where We’re Headed, Why, and What We Can Do About It

Theater

Steve Hargadon Significant changes are taking place in our society and culture, largely driven by the participative and collaborative technologies of the Web. These technologies have the potential to dramatically (and quickly) change public expectations of the role of schools in teaching and learning, and we are about to have the largest discussion about education we’ve had in decades, maybe longer. We can predict several changes to education that are likely to come from these changes, and as we examine the core dilemmas that these changes pose to our current educational systems (and that will define our biggest challenges in our next few years), we’ll discuss the things that we can do now to start preparing.

About Steve Hargadon Steve is the Social Learning Consultant for Elluminate/Blackboard Collaborate, founder of the Classroom 2.0 social network, host of the Future of Education interview series, and co-chair of the Global Education Conference. He pioneered the use of social networking in education, particularly for professional development. He authored Educational Networking: The Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education, and is the recipient of the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award. He has consulted for PBS, Intel, Ning, Microsoft, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, the US State Department, and others on educational technology. Learn more about Steve at www.stevehargadon.com.

Welcome to Class - Today I will be Teaching From...Las Vegas! Room 101 Steve Gough - NSU Center For Statewide E-learning Teaching from Nevada to South Dakota, I had the opportunity to really put the distance part of my job to work. Six years ago when I started teaching for the Center for Statewide E-learning in Aberdeen, I was amazed that I could teach to students from one corner of the state to another with the help of the DDN network, however I certainly never thought that I would be able to teach my classes in South Dakota from Las Vegas. Due to a family medical emergency in early November, I had to take an unexpected trip to my parents’ home in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had to figure out what I could do with my classes so the students would not fall behind. Through a program called Camtasia I recorded my class sessions and posted them on the Desire2Learn (D2L) site for each class. I was able to continue with my classes according to my lesson plans and did not have to lose teaching time with my students. Could this be done in a regular classroom? My answer is yes! If you know you are going to be absent from class, you could pre-record your lesson from any computer with a web-cam and just have your substitute play it for the class. In this session I will focus on how I am using Camtasia in my courses currently, things I plan on doing and things you could do with it in a regular classroom setting.
