TIE Conference 2009

Welcome - TIE Director, Julie Mathiesen Welcome to the 23rd annual TIE conference – Together in Excellence. It is a pleasure and 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 – nationally recognized keynote speakers, stimulating breakout sessions, a technology-rich exhibit hall, fabulous prizes and much, much more.

TIE 2009 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 2009 partners is reflected in the breadth and depth of conference activities. I’d like to point out several unique features and additions to this year’s conference. Each of the breakout sessions are categorized by “tags”. No doubt you’ve become familiar with the concept of tags as you’ve explored Web 2.0 technologies like blogs and social bookmarking. These one or two word “tags” will help you quickly identify the audience and subject of each breakout session. While most tags are self-explanatory, you might be curious about the Learning Power tag on several sessions. One of our significant TIE partner projects is the Learning Power project which engages South Dakota educators in the delivery of online AP courses. Many of these teachers are attending the conference and will seek out the Learning Power tag because these sessions will contain elements relevant to online learning and high-level learners. Each year at the TIE conference we are honored to recognize outstanding technology leaders. In addition to the awards for K-12 Teacher and K-12 Technology Leader we will be awarding the first Dr. James Parry Technology Leadership Legacy Award. This annual award will be given to a leader who exemplifies the dedication and integrity of TIE’s founder and former director of 22 years. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to gain insight and wisdom from Dr. Parry as he reflects on his experiences during Tuesday’s final event. 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 Wiki http://conference2009.tie2.wikispaces.net/. 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,

My Conference Planner Monday, April 20 Keynote Session o 8:15 - 9:30 am

Technology Integration Professional Development Services Challenge: How do you find the time to create professional development that will help teachers locate online resources, learn about technology tools, incorporate them into classrooms, focus on 21st century skills, and still design standards-based instruction and assessment that prepares students for standardized tests? Solution: Contract with TIE to provide your technology integration professional development services! Integrating technology effectively into your classrooms can seem like an insurmountable task, yet more and more technology (and the tools it offers) is available in today’s schools. Our education technology specialists have the ability to generate custom professional development for your school and staff, resulting in practical ideas for implementation by teachers and administrators. Whether your staff development needs are for one afternoon, one day, one year, or part of your five-year plan, we can create and deliver an effective approach tailored to meet your goals. Our delivery methods are customizable to include onsite, online, videoconferencing or a hybrid combination of these formats. Not only can we structure the delivery method for your school or district, we will work with you to customize the topics addressed in order to best meet your individual needs and fit your school calendar. Here are just a few samples of what we have available: Web2.0: It’s a Wiki Wiki World! Do you wish you had a quick and easy way to post information for your students, where they could go to find needed items, rather than repeatedly asking you? Would you like to have your students collaborate on projects and publish them to the Internet? How about a place where you can communicate with the community, especially parents, about what your class is currently studying? You can do all this and more with your very own website, a place called a wiki. Wikis require no knowledge of programming or other software—if you can write an email, you can create a wiki! 21st Century Skills to Promote Higher-Order Thinking What better way to gain understanding of 21st century skills than to participate in a mock 21st century classroom? Find out how to use primary source data from current online resources and online collaboration tools like wikis, blogs, and Google Docs to facilitate higher-order thinking skills and to engage your students. This cross-curricular example provides a springboard for discussion about 21st century skills and implementation ideas for every K-12 content area. Using Google Tools/Google Earth We’ve all heard of Google and most of us have probably used it to search the Internet. But did you know that Google is far more than a search engine? With Google, you can clip information from the Internet as you surf, view maps and get directions, and use Google Docs to create collaborative word processing, spreadsheet, or presentation documents. Google Earth is just one of the many Google tools available, and has much more content than just geographic maps! Venture into Earth for lit trips, museum tours, historical imagery, and even ocean shipwrecks. Learn how to utilize these incredible tools for student engagement and collaboration on authentic tasks.

Thinkfinity for 21st Century Learning How do you incorporate Internet lessons, interactives, and learning objects into your classroom? Thinkfinity can help you understand the true meaning of integration with powerful resources that are aligned to national and state standards. Thinkfinity training can help all K-12 teachers in every content area to better integrate technology into their instruction. Web2.0: Consumption to Creation! The Internet used to be just a place to read information. Now, it is a place to read, write, communicate, and create. This tour of the read/write web will showcase many of the free tools available to you and your students. Tools modeled may include wikis, blogs, podcasts, and other online resources as per your request. Go beyond consuming and become a web innovator and content creator! Learn how to use these tools, why they are important and how they can deepen student understanding of your content! Interactive Whiteboards for Integrated Learning Digital whiteboards can serve as simple presentation tools or indepth collaboration tools. Go beyond the basics by promoting student collaboration with whiteboard resources. Whether you have SMART Boards, Promethean boards, or other brands, we will help you to develop engaging lessons using the resources provided by these companies or developing your own custom lesson materials. Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works Learn how to integrate technologies that support the nine research-based instructional strategies identified by Robert Marzano. Improve your student achievement scores by integrating technology with effective instructional strategies for 21st century teaching and learning. The focus here is on technology integration using computer and online resources.

Booktrailers provide an alternative form of assessment to the dreaded book report, get students involved in the community of content creators that are making booktrailers to share on the Internet and provide teachers with the process necessary to guide students through making a quick, 30 to 45 second introduction movie to a book. Using Photostory 3, teachers will learn the five step process needed to create their own movies. Teachers will also learn the collaboration strategies used to share their student’s work with the world or just their school. This book introduction movie is purposefully described as a “booktrailer” to distinguish it from the longer and more sedate “booktalk” and to associate it with the fast pace of a movie trailer, with which we are all familiar. You will see the progression of a book video website for students that started as a concept and now hosts hundreds of videos. General • Middle School • Innovation/Creativity • Visual Lit.

Monday Session Descriptions, continued Breakout Session 4 2:25 - 3:20 PM 2:25 Assessing Teachers on Technology Room 205 Shane Steckelberg - Tech Coordinator/Technical Staff, Dakota Valley School District What steps can be taken to assess and assist teachers with technology in the classroom? Administrators • Self Direction • Professional Development • SDSTE 2:25 Contemplative Education: Opening a Space for Mindfulness Rushmore Hall North Scott Simpson - Ed Tech Specialist, TIE Contemplative practice has existed as a part of all the Wisdom Traditions for centuries. It includes practices that range from various forms of meditation to methods for deep listening to creative practices centered on music, word and movement, to activities designed to promote social justice. Though our classrooms are often data-driven and state mandated, contemplative approaches address such important modes of knowing as reflective reading, suspension of assumption/judgement, cultivation of compassion, whole-hearted commitment to learning, panoramic awareness, authentic spontaneity, and playfulness. These are not modes typically articulated in standards, but they do feed the organic root of all learning and awareness. This session will involve several short readings of poetry and prose, discussion of theoretical underpinnings and practical applications, some interactive practice, and encouragement toward establishing a personal contemplative practice. Attendees will be exposed to several links and titles that may also be of use as they pursue contemplative practices in their schools and classrooms. Classroom Teachers • Self Direction • Innovation/Creativity • Contemplative/Reflective 2:25 Creating 21st Century Learning Environments Rm 105 (exhibit hall) Alan Hansen, Apple Computer, Inc. Why is it so urgent that we create 21st century learning environments that interest and engage today’s students? What are the 21st century skills students need to be successful? What does a 21st century learning environment look like? In this session we’ll explore these questions, and introduce the Apple Classroom of Tomorrow-Today (ACOT2) program and its challenged-based learning curriculum. Emerging Technology 2:25 Digital Citizenship & Internet Safety--A Resource for Schools Geoffrey Sheehy & Tammy Mestad - Teachers/Instructors, Rapid City Area Schools LaCroix B Helping digital natives make wise decisions as citizens in a digital world is a crucial goal for educators and parents, but it is difficult when the educators and mentors are not the experts with the technology. In this session, the presenters share resources they have created to help teach students the basics of digital citizenship and Internet safety. The resources have been developed for teachers across South Dakota in K-12 schools as they strive to meet the growing demand for Internet safety curriculum in schools. Presenters will share the background to the project, demonstrate how the resources can be used, and open discussion for concerns about digital citizenship and Internet safety. Classroom Teachers • Social Responsibility • Information/Media Literacy • Digital Citizenship 2:25 Digital Writing and Video with WebKinz Studio Room 206 Mark Geary - Teacher/Instructor, Dakota State University Learn how to leverage the popular student tool, WebKinz, for improved student learning. Create and have students create digital puppet shows in WebKinz. With 4.5 million students logging in each month, this tool is too important to go underutilized. Classroom Teachers • Middle School • Information/Media Literacy • Student Engagement 2:25 Engage Students Using Visual Literacy LaCroix C Marcia Torgrude & Barb Rowenhorst - Ed Tech Specialists, TIE Visual literacy is something learned, just as reading and writing are learned. It is very important to have the ability to process visual images efficiently and understand the impact they have on viewers. Images can be a great way to begin a discussion, to promote understanding, or to influence others thoughts. We will provide teachers with a starting point in the use of visual literacy in their classrooms. Classroom Teachers • Student Engagement • Visual Literacy 20

2:25 Libraries Taking on Computer Illiteracy and Narrowing the Digital Divide LaCroix D Chris Tonjes - Tech Coordinator/Technical Staff, District of Columbia Libraries With computer literacy being a make or break point in the 21st century, narrowing our nation’s digital divide should be a top priority for parents, educators, and decision makers. We must take steps to educate all citizens in the ways of the most recent technological advancements. The District of Columbia’s Public Libraries are combining state-of-the-art technologies with well educated professionals to take on the computer illiteracy problem. The benefits of an advanced library system are felt far beyond the library walls. With everything from job postings to applying for college to investments in being “paper free,” those further out of the digital divide will suffer. General • Other • Web 2.0 • Information/Media Literacy • Digital Divide 2:25 Profiling the High-Level Learner Rushmore Hall E MaryLou McGirr - Ed Tech Specialist, TIE Students in South Dakota have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement courses in the areas of math, science and English online through Learning Power. Through college-level AP courses, students enter a universe of knowledge that might otherwise remain unexplored in high school. In addition, students have the opportunity to earn credit or advanced standing at most of the nation’s colleges and universities. In this session, learn the qualities high-level learners need to possess in order to engage in AP courses. Discover the course prerequisites that will prepare these students to be successful in AP courses and exams. Classroom Teachers • Other • Learning Power 2:25 Self Publishing Books and Other Projects for the Classroom Room 201/202 Chris Martin - Teacher/Instructor, Harrisburg School District This presentation is designed for teachers who want to create projects in their rooms that allow students to work together in order to create stories, inform, or showcase classroom work. Self publishing is becoming more popular and with emerging technologies such as Shutterfly and Blurb, more user friendly as well. This session is best suited for all grades. Projects for each subject area will vary and is only limited to the imagination. The tools needed and process of book and media creation will be covered as well as actual examples shown. Participants will be encouraged to bring their laptops to follow along. Classroom Teachers • Interpersonal/Collaboration • Student Engagement • Creativity 2:25 SMART Sync: Maximizing Your Computers And Your Time Rushmore Hall G Chris Klein, SMART Technologies Discover how easy and effective it is to manage instruction with SMART Sync 2009 for your desktop, mobile labs, or even those few computers in the back of the classroom.

Monday Session Descriptions, continued 2:25 Technology in Physical Education Room 102 Jeannine Metzger - Teacher/Instructor, Shannon County School District In this session I would like to show all the ways I use technology in my gym class. My goal this year was to become completely paperless in my PE class. My students respond so much better to doing something with a computer or other forms of technology than using the old paper and pencil method. See how a Voki can add fun to a strength station. Analalize how a video of a skill can promte deeper learning, or just have some fun hip-hop dancing from lessons presented on the web. General • High School • Student Engagement • Innovation/Creativity 2:25 Using iGoogle in the Classroom Elizabeth J. Vogt, Pierre School District Rushmore Hall F For the past year, I have been using iGoogle with my students in a variety of ways. Each student sets up his/her own iGoogle account and adds Google documents and bookmarks. We frequently use the Google documents for collaborative work on group projects. In addition, my newspaper staff uses Google documents to discuss story ideas for each issue’s newspaper and to share stories with the editors and with me. We use Google bookmarks to keep track of our favorites, especially for research. My students like iGoogle so well that they often use it for projects in other classes and for their other personal uses. My presentation will demonstrate the various uses of iGoogle that I have used with my students and discuss what I have learned about using iGoogle in the classroom. Classroom Teachers • Other • Interpersonal/Collaboration • One-to-one • Learning Power 2:25 Virtualization Ponderosa Room Bryan Waege, Connecting Point Computer Center Virtual servers and virtual desktops let you host multiple operating systems and multiple applications locally and in remote locations, freeing you from physical and geographical limitations.

Tuesday Keynote & Session Descriptions

About Cheryl Lemke Cheryl Lemke is President and CEO of the Metiri Group. Ms. Lemke specializes in public policy for K12 learning technology, working at a variety of levels with governors, legislators, superintendents, business leaders, and teachers. She brings 25 years of experience in the public sector—as a teacher, technology coordinator, cabinet member at a state education agency—and the nonprofit sector prior to her work with the Metiri Group. Ms. Lemke currently works with both the public and private sectors at the state and national level. This includes projects related to assessment of technology impacts on learning; gauging the progress of states, districts, and schools with educational technology; conducting program evaluations; convening national experts in discussions on policy issues; and designing and prototyping educational technology frameworks. As of 2006 Metiri serves as a partner in the Regional Educational Laboratory Mid-Atlantic, conducting, reviewing, and reporting educational research.

8:15 - 9:30 am The Ripple Effect: 21st Century Research Innovations that Matter Rushmore Hall North Cheryl Lemke Design tomorrow’s lessons using the latest social, learning, and neuroscience research on critical thinking, multi-tasking, multimodal learning, collaboration, and engagement. All learning is highly personal, but research shows that collaborative/social learning is much more effective than competitive or individual learning when the goal is critical thinking. High tech tools serve as an extension to the student’s thinking - a place to explore ideas, research questions, test gypotheses, compose thoughts, and come to conclusions - in other words, to learn. Along the way, these tools serve as vehicles for social networking and authenticity, two highly effective accelerators to learning. Social networking via technology can connect students to a broad range of interactivity that sharpen and extend thinking and pique intellectual curiosity. Add authenticity into the mix, and enable students to explore rigorous academic concepts in the context of the world around them. The resultant sense of power and confidence unleashed in students and educators is to schools what globalization is to the U.S. economy - its future. Breakout Session 5 9:45 - 10:40 AM 9:45 Can We Do Whatever We Want Today? Nancy Reimer & Ladonna Mielke - Teachers/Instructors, Room 102 Faith School District This year the Faith computer department, in conjunction with the 7th grade teacher, collaborated and had students design their own wiki to make an online portfolio that they can use in any of their classes. Adding other widgets such as: voki’s, toondoo’s, Google Docs, zoho presentations, and many other Web 2.0 tools to their wiki’s makes the technology meaningful and interesting to each student. Classroom Teachers • High School • Student Engagement Interpersonal/Collaboration 9:45 Copyright, Fair Use and Creative Commons in the Classroom and Online LaCroix B Lacey Hoogland & Matt Wiebe - Ed Tech Specialists, TIE You’ve found another teacher’s lesson plans online. They’re perfect for your upcoming unit. The author did not copyright them so you decide to print the lessons out and use them in your classroom. Are you violating copyright and fair use laws? What exactly is copyright and fair use? Have you heard the term Creative Commons but don’t know what it is? Is this affecting your teaching practices and limiting your ability to be innovative in your instruction? This session will explore these questions and will provide you with resources that you and your students can use to avoid legal fallout.

Tuesday Session Descriptions, continued 9:45 Creative Use of Technology in the English Classroom Room 205 Kara Neugebauer - Teacher/Instructor, Wagner Community School District As the world of teaching and technology evolves, we need to keep up with the trends, as well as with our students’ needs. Using a Wiki in the English classroom allows students to use 21st Century Skills while engaging them in literature circles with kids outside of their own class. Having students complete projects using technology can enhance the understanding and writing of poetry. In this session, you will learn of some of the everyday and larger uses and applications of technology in the English classroom. Classroom Teachers • Other • Innovation/Creativity • One-to-one 9:45 Critical and Creative Thinking: A Differentiator LaCroix C Cheryl Lemke, Metiri Group Innovation is the engine driving today’s global, high-tech, connected society. In order to thrive in that type of society, students will need to be critical and innovative thinkers. Join this session to explore what it means to think critically and creatively. Take a look into classrooms where advances in the science of learning are translating into deep learning. Technology-rich examples of critical thinking in science, English/language arts, social studies, and mathematics classes will be demonstrated. Digital content, student technology-enhanced productivity tools, and rubrics will be reviewed. The session will be grounded in theoretical and empirical research. General • Critical Thinking • Innovation/Creativity 9:45 Dare to Inspire: Be the Teacher You Always Admired Rushmore Hall F Londa Richter - Ed Tech Specialist, TIE Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. When asked about your favorite teacher, is it the subject/grade level that you remember or the character of the individual? Teachers who successfully connect with students are able to get students excited about learning. Teaching character education comes from modeling responsibility, ethics and respect. Come and find out how to turn character education into higher achieving students. Classroom Teachers 9:45 Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Loan and Grant Programs Room 207 Kim Anderson & Wayne Ahlgren, USDA Rural Development The Distance Learning and Telemedicine (DLT) Loan and Grant Programs are designed to specifically to meet the educational and health care needs of rural America. It is a program about rural America, for rural financial assistance to rural recipients to enhance learning and health care opportunities for rural residents. The programs asks recipients to define the educational or health care problems that face their rural community; determine how Federal distance learning or telemedicine assistance can help and explain why it can’t be done without our help. Administrators • Emerging Technology 9:45 Let’s Have a Meeting Live on the Internet Room 201/202 Peg Henson - Tech Coordinator/Technical Staff, South Dakota Department of Education This session will provide instruction on how to conduct an online meeting via the states standard web conferencing platformMicrosoft Live Meeting. Participants will learn how to participate, design, and organize an online meeting for professional development purposes. General • Emerging Technology • Web 2.0 9:45 Meeting the Needs of the High-Level Learner in Mathematics Mary Cundy - Principal/Assistant Principal, E-learning Center, Northern State University Rushmore Hall E Students at the greatest risk of learning the least in classrooms may be those at the top range of ability. The needs of these students are often neglected because these students achieve acceptable standards on state assessments. High-level learners can create multiple connections and organize those connections in many different ways: they learn differently from their classmates. This session will focus on strategies for creating a challenging learning experience for high-level mathematics students. General • Other • Student Engagement • Learning Power

Tuesday Session Descriptions, continued 11:30 Did You Know that You can Use Microsoft Office to Help Your Students Understand Math Concepts? Rushmore Hall H Janet Caughlin, Douglas County West Public Schools Combining the typical cognitive approach to teaching math with the media elements in Microsoft Office will help your students learn math concepts. In this session you’ll see how to incorporate spreadsheets and interactive charts into your curriculum, and to manipulate the data so students can analyze this data, see trends, see connections, and plan for the future. Manipulating data helps students see the meaning in data at the same time it strengthens their analytical and critical-thinking skills and develops deeper content understanding. You’ll also learn to use Microsoft Equation editor to make professional-looking printed worksheets, and use PowerPoint to review students and introduce concepts in a step-by-step, visual way. Classroom Teachers • High School • Real-World Tools • Innovation/Creativity 11:30 Digital Projects And Stories: Voicethread for the Classroom LaCroix A Melissa Goodwin Voicethread is a Web based tool that allows users to create and collaborate on multimedia projects.

This session will introduce you to some ideas to take back to your language arts classroom and incorporate technology. The presenters have found that integrating technology really spurs students’ interests and keeps them engaged. The session will deal with projects used in upper elementary literature circles, such as book reports using Imovie, creating songs from books using Garage Band, videoing parts of a book and utilizing the Internet for online projects. The group will be able to look at projects students have made and along with the presenters, create their own book report using Imovie.

11:30 Quia - The Ultimate Technology Integration Tool! Room 101 Richard Thomas - Teacher/Instructor, Watertown School District Quia is a fee based site that is indispensible to the classroom teacher who wants to integrate technology into their lessons. It is user-friendly and the tools that are available at this site will be examined so that participants can use the site immediately! Classroom Teachers • Other • One-to-one • Student Engagement 11:30 Rethinking Presentations Alpine Room Geoffrey Sheehy - Teacher/Instructor, Rapid City Area Schools Watching students’ reactions to my instruction, I have hypothesized that there exists a formulaic element to teachers’ presentations in the classroom. That does not suggest good things for teachers, because if it is formulaic, students can ignore us more easily and return to more challenging intellectual stimuli, like figuring out how to text message their buddies without getting caught. Thus, I suggest four areas that we might consider addressing in order to improve our presentations: images, story-telling, participation, and alternative thinking that considers everything, not just Power Point. Classroom Teachers • Other • Visual Literacy • Student Engagement 11:30 Technology Can Make Response to Intervention a Reality Room 102 Linda Gillentine & Cheryl Jenner - Tech Coordinator/Tech Staff, Sisseton School District The current version of RtI mandates good instructional practices (i.e., empirically or research-based) and evaluation of academic progress (i.e., progress monitoring) for all children. The wait to fail to be able to qualify for special intervention is gone. Technology allows a teacher to effectively implement the three tiered model developed by IDEA. Using good software will effectively benchmark assess students, implement RtI strategies, differentiate instruction, and reassess to confirm successful intervention. This session will demonstrate how formative assessment can identify and provide intervention for Tier 1. This level of intervention will involve, according to IDEA, approximately 80% of the students. Intervention for Tier 1 includes the areas of math, reading and writing. Students not making progress with Tier 1 will move to Tier 2. Based on Tier 1 intervention, Tier 2 students can be identified. This session will demonstrate how intervention can be created and implemented for small specific skill sets and receive remediation by individual student or small group instruction. Tier 2 data will provide information for moving a student to Tier 3 if necessary. With the RtI Model teachers can better address individual students needs before they arrest a student’s progress. Benchmark assessment, data, and curriculum are the core of this model. Technology will easily allow for student evaluations, aggregation of data, and provide individualized instruction for specific skills. This presentation will stress assessment is something done not to the student but for the student.

Tuesday Session Descriptions, continued 11:30 You Want Me to Teach How and With What? Blended Learning for the 21st Century Classroom Rushmore Hall G Elaine Shuck & Marci Powell, Polycom The nature of the 21st century classroom is rapidly changing due to innovations and distance-learning opportunities. With online education in K-12 growing at about 30% annually, the onus is on the teachers to understand and use a combination of traditional and virtual teaching methods to raise student achievement, engagement and motivation. Blended learning programs require educators to understand the time and planning necessary for Web-centric courses, virtual field trips and distance-learning programs available to incorporate into lesson plans. Educators have a number of collaborative resources available to share lesson plans and ideas as well as look for opportunities to connect the classrooms. Tools such as videoconferencing can offer tremendous benefits to schools, educators, students and parents by enabling engaging learning experiences beyond the classroom. A combination of collaboration technologies and Web access presents teachers with the opportunity to plan virtual field trips, interact with subject matter experts and collaborate with a global peer network. Blended teaching methods also enable instant feedback and assessment capabilities ensuring that each student has mastered the material before moving on. Attendees will learn an overview of blended learning methods and its power in the classroom, how to incorporate blended learning methods into today’s classroom, technologies that can help facilitate the blended learning process, what to avoid when designing a blended learning curriculum, and best practice examples and real life case studies of blended learning successes. Tech/Network Spec. • Interpersonal/Collaboration • Emerging Technologies 11:30 You Want Me to Write WHAT? Rushmore Hall F Jennifer Nehl - Ed Tech Specialist, TIE This interactive session focuses on teaching educators how to organize, process, and deliver information cross-curricular using mulitple writing processes from various research-based programs such as Step-Up-to Writing, Writing to Win, Writing Across the Curriculum, Writing Workshop and others. We will provide creative, innovative, simplistic ideas for the busy educator which can be immediately transferred to the classroom. This session will help the educator to work smarter, not harder, removing the anxieties of not being a writing teacher! Classroom Teachers • Innovation/Creativity • Real-World Tools

Our Mission To be a source of professional development which assists and empowers educational communities to respond productively and responsibly in a networked global society. Our Vision TIE is committed to the ongoing capacity building of all stakeholders of the educational community, both internally and externally. In fulfilling this commitment, TIE strives to provide and create opportunities for positive and continued growth. Continued growth demands routine reflection, internal dialogue, and constant resolve for professional improvement and increased excellence. As its mission is carried out, the following observable traits describe the culture of TIE. Structures and processes that support a culture of lifelong learning in a networked global society are valued and pursued. Research and experience are recognized as important and the “nuggets” gleaned are used to thoughtfully engage in change and growth. Partnerships with many diverse educational stakeholders and educational communities are pursued, created, and maintained. Implications and challenges of a networked global society are embraced as the impetus to create new, valid intelligences which provide a foundation for ongoing school reform. • Broad-based awareness of curriculum, technology, and effective learning processes are used as the catalyst for systemic school reform. • Teaching and learning environments that empower educational stakeholders to interact and function in new productive roles are planned and created collaboratively. • Values that ensure integrity, accountability, and responsibility for a safe, healthy, and respectful global society are supported and practiced. • • • •

Within the Vision of TIE, technology, curriculum, assessment, innovations, and leadership are viewed as an integrated whole. This integration is also reflected in the broad-based knowledge and experience of the staff. The strength of TIE is multiplied through the strength of the staff, and the Vision of TIE is realized through the collective vision of its individual staff members.

23rd Annual TIE Conference


Welcome - TIE Director, Julie Mathiesen Welcome to the 23rd annual TIE conference – Together in Excellence. It is a pleasure and 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 – nationally recognized keynote speakers, stimulating breakout sessions, a technology-rich exhibit hall, fabulous prizes and much, much more.

TIE 2009 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 2009 partners is reflected in the breadth and depth of conference activities. I’d like to point out several unique features and additions to this year’s conference. Each of the breakout sessions are categorized by “tags”. No doubt you’ve become familiar with the concept of tags as you’ve explored Web 2.0 technologies like blogs and social bookmarking. These one or two word “tags” will help you quickly identify the audience and subject of each breakout session. While most tags are self-explanatory, you might be curious about the Learning Power tag on several sessions. One of our significant TIE partner projects is the Learning Power project which engages South Dakota educators in the delivery of online AP courses. Many of these teachers are attending the conference and will seek out the Learning Power tag because these sessions will contain elements relevant to online learning and high-level learners. Each year at the TIE conference we are honored to recognize outstanding technology leaders. In addition to the awards for K-12 Teacher and K-12 Technology Leader we will be awarding the first Dr. James Parry Technology Leadership Legacy Award. This annual award will be given to a leader who exemplifies the dedication and integrity of TIE’s founder and former director of 22 years. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to gain insight and wisdom from Dr. Parry as he reflects on his experiences during Tuesday’s final event. 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 Wiki http://conference2009.tie2.wikispaces.net/. 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,

My Conference Planner Monday, April 20 Keynote Session o 8:15 - 9:30 am
