Welcome to the 24th Annual TIE Conference!

My Conference Planner

from Dr. Julie Mathiesen - TIE Director TIE Advisory Board

Welcome to the 24th 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 – nationally recognized keynote speakers, stimulating breakout sessions, a technologyrich exhibit hall, fabulous prizes and much, much more.

TIE 2010 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 2010 partners is reflected in the breadth and depth of conference activities. I’d like to point out several features of 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. 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 #TIE10 Twitter hashtag here http://xrl.us/ TIE10. 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 second annual 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. 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://conference2010.tie2.wikispaces.net. We’ve encouraged presenters to post presentations, handouts and links so that you can easily access them after you return home.

On the Horizon: TIE Membership Benefits You! Schools are constantly being asked to do more with less. TIE Membership can help you meet the challenges of budgets and time through the benefits provided to TIE members. The more your district utilizes its member benefits, the more your district can save! For more information on how TIE Membership can benefit your district, visit our website: www.tie.net.

FREE BENEFITS

MEMBER DISCOUNTS

ON-THE-HORIZON: Technology Leadership & Integrationist Events: As a new membership benefit, TIE will be offering professional development events for Administrators and Technology Integrationists (including the popular Technology & Innovation Leadership Event - TILE) over the course of the year at no cost to TIE members. These events focus on 21st century learning environments. Watch our website and monthly updates for more information about these events!

ON-THE-HORIZON: Technology Integration & Instruction Profile: TIE will be making a new service available for member districts in Fall 2010—the TIE Technology Integration & Instruction Profile (TIIP). TIIP will provide your district with a portrait of technology use and instructional practices within your school or district. TIIP can include a one-time survey , a more in depth site visit, or an ongoing measurement of 21st century skills in your district. Contact Lennie Symes for more information!

Workshop on DVD: Each school in a TIE member district receives a copy of our Workshop on DVD offerings as they become available. Our most recent title, Measuring Up, provides an introduction to formative assessment. Our next DVD, which will be available this summer, will focus on Internet safety and digital citizenship. These titles join our library of Classroom Management and Winning Words—how vocabulary instruction can increase student achievement in all grade levels and content areas.

Discount Vendor Partners: TIE is continually working to provide cost-saving opportunities through its vendor partner program. Whether you participate in a group purchase or take advantage of ongoing savings specials for TIE members districts, your district can cut its costs on hardware, software, and professional services. Joining our more than 30 discount partners this year are Learn360—a digital media provider, and LanSchool—a computer classroom management tool. Check the TIE website for updates, and mention your TIE membership status to vendors to ensure your savings.

Online Workshops: TIE membership provides free professional development opportunities to all staff in member districts, and does so in the comfort of their own classrooms, living rooms, local coffee shops, or wherever they can access the internet with our online workshops. These workshops provide teachers, administrators, and paraprofessionals alike with access to current topics in education and more importantly to each other.

Data Analysis Services: Looking for a better way to use all that data from the Dakota STEP? Our data analysis services provide you with easy to read charts and graphs representing your district and school information that tell you at a glance where students and schools are performing.

Tech Tuesday Webinars: Mark your calendars now for the first Tuesday afternoon of each month to join TIE staff and other educators from around the region for a quick update on new and interesting Web 2.0 tools. These webinars provide both where to find the tool, how to use it, and ideas for how the tool can be used in your classroom or professional work, plus they are recorded for viewing at anytime.

TIE Conference Registration: If you have this booklet, you already know that attending the TIE conference is an excellent way to discover new strategies, connect with colleagues, and stay current with the latest technologies. You might not realize that TIE membership provides a discounted rate for all staff. Plan to return with a friend or your entire faculty for TIE 2011 on April 3-5 in Rapid City!

Custom Technical Training: Network administrators and technology coordinators often need specialized technical training that can be somewhat expensive. Thanks to a partnership with New Horizons, TIE member districts are provided with 2-4 days of this kind of training absolutely free. Plus, members can now take advantage of a new mobile mentored learning program that brings the training right to your desktop—no need to travel!

TIE Contracts: Whether you are looking for ways to integrate technology, improve your reading scores, update your mathematics instruction, or implement professional learning communities, TIE has the expertise to help. Member districts receive discounted rates for TIE contract services, whether you need a half day inservice or a full year of staff development. See the next page for a few of our available topics!

TIE Conference Registration for Administrators: Make your TIE conference participation a great collective professional development experience with a team approach! TIE member districts receive one free general registration for a superintendent, principal, or school board member. This is a great way to stay current with 21st century educational practice and to have all of your school leaders on the same page.

24th Annual TIE Conference

TIE is pleased to be partnering with SDSTE to host special professional development opportunities for technology integrationists throughout the year. Please check our websites regularly for details.


Technology + Innovation + Education = TIE It’s an equation for success! When you need ideas for how to better integrate technology into classroom practice, TIE staff can deliver the right equation for success in your specific school or district. Each of the topics listed below can be customized to enhance and strengthen your existing goals. Additional topics are also available - contact Jackie Jessop Rising or Lennie Symes for more information at 605-394-1876. Have TIE come to your school for technology integration staff development that adds up to a successful focus on 21st Century teaching, learning, and leading! Format Options • On Site - Bring a TIE Education Technology Specialist to your location. • Via Distance - Take advantage of our web conferencing tools or the DDN for a live workshop. • Online - Participate in an online workshop developed for your faculty/staff with periodic live support through web conferencing. • Blended - Ongoing staff development with combination of on site and online presentations, resources, and activities. It’s a Wiki Wiki World! Do you wish you had a quick and easy way to post information for your students, where they can go to find needed items, rather than repeatedly asking you? Have your students collaborate on projects and publish them to the internet? How about a place to communicate with your community, especially parents, about what your students are currently studying? Do all this and more with a very easy to make and maintain website, called a wiki. Technology with Classroom Instruction that Works Learn how to integrate technologies that support the nine research-based instructional strategies as identified in a research metaanlysis by Robert Marzano and first published in the book Classroom Instruction that Works. See how computer software and online resources available for no cost can be integrated into your existing classroom practices to promote both 21st century skills and technology integration.

Using Your Interactive Whiteboards Whether you need an introduction to the basics or you are ready to go beyond the basics by promoting student interactivity with whiteboard tools, we can provide the training you need. We can show you how to access existing resources and develop engaging lessons based on them or by starting your own notebooks or flipcharts from scratch. We can help you with Promethean, SMART, or other brands.

Thinkfinity for 21st Century Learning How do you integrate 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. The new Thinkfinity Community tools released in April 2010 provide even more interactivity with these outstanding resources and fellow educators.

Digital Citizenship and Cybersafety The advent of social networking and a participatory internet also brings challenges and responsibilities for navigating this digital world. From compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act to teaching students how to leave a positive digital footprint, we can provide information and resources for creating safe learning environments and awareness of cyberbullying issues.

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 tools, you can clip information from the internet as you surf, view maps and get directions, and use Google Docs to collaborate on any project. Google Earth provides a geographic base for lessons, videos, images, and literature trips for engagement in a variety of content areas.

Web 2.0 Tools: Focus on Creating! The internet used to just provide information to read. Now, it is a place to read, write, and communicate. We will take you on a tour of the Read/Write Web and show you many of the free tools available to you and your students that are not only fun, but excellent for sharing content or demonstrating understanding. These may include concept mapping, avatars, video montage creation, multimedia posters, photo editing resources, and other creative tools as per your request.

21st Century Skills to Promote HOTS Most teachers teach how they were taught, but not everyone has had the chance to participate in 21st century learning… until now. In this hands-on activity, we model a 21st Century classroom activity that utilizes collaborative tools like Google Docs and Spreadsheets to analyze real data available online for an authentic task. Discussion may follow on how to use technology to emphasize higher order thinking skills and increase student engagement.

Sunday Keynote Session 6:45 - 8:00 pm Ballroom A

Gadgets! Leslie Fisher

Are you a gadget head? Do you surf the net or listen closely to geeks talking in hopes of hearing about a cool software product or gizmo? Leslie Fisher (Gadget Freak) will show you some of her favorite hardware and software gadgets that do everything from make your life easier to provide piles of fun. Hardware, software and even completely off topic gadgets will be discussed. About Leslie Fisher Leslie Fisher’s interest in technology began while studying music at the University of Southern California. She quickly realized the value of utilizing computers for music mixing and recording. She grabbed her 300 baud modem, jumped on the Internet (before anyone really called it the internet) and started looking for music resources. She soon realized she was spending more time discovering technology than playing music so she changed her major and tried to figure out what geeky thing she could do for the rest of her life.

www.lesliefisher.com www.twitter.com/lesliefisher

After graduating from USC with a Business and Marketing degree in 1989 and a quick stint as a Trainer, Leslie joined Apple Computer in 1992. When the Internet took off in 1994, Leslie was one of the first Apple employees assigned to study Internet growth and implementation. In 1997, Leslie was roadkill on Apple’s road to recovery and part of their massive layoff. Leslie planned to spend most of her huge severance package golfing and waiting a few months to look for a job. The day after her layoff, her phone began to ring with Apple customers requesting consulting, training and presentation services. Before she could say fore, Fisher Technologies Inc. was created to help educators with their technology implementations and decisions. Fisher Technologies Inc. is now a worldwide company (meaning one employee named Leslie gets to travel the world teaching) specializing in Web Development, Web Tools as well as Digital Photography, Editing and Workflow.

About Dr. Jack Bacon Jack Bacon has often been called “A New Carl Sagan.” He is an internationally-known motivational speaker, a distinguished lecturer (emeritus) of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and one of the most requested speakers in the world for topics concerning technology and the factors that shape human society. A noted futurist and a technological historian, he has written three popular books entitled My Grandfathers’ Clock, My Stepdaughter’s Watch, and The Parallel Bang, with many thousands of copies sold of each. A fourth: Killer Apps for the Green Global Village is in the works. His lectures have captivated tens of thousands of all ages in thirty-two countries on six continents, and he has appeared on numerous radio and television broadcasts. In his daily work, he is on the management team overseeing the construction and operation of the most complicated technical project in history: the International Space Station.

A graduate of Caltech (B.S. ‘76) and the University of Rochester (Ph.D. ‘84) his extensive career includes roles in the development of many cutting edge technologies, including controlled thermonuclear fusion, the development of the electronic office, factory automation, and the globalization of business. He pioneered the deployment of several artificial intelligence systems, learning his craft at the famed Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. He was the United States’ lead systems integrator of the Zarya, the jointly-built spacecraft that forms the central bridge and adapter between all US and Russian technologies on the Space Station. This landmark in technological history was built in Moscow by American and Russian engineers and launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in November 1998. Jack is a fellow of the Explorer’s Club, a member of the AIAA, the National Speakers Association, the International Federation of Professional Speakers, Engineers Without Borders, and Rotary International. He was a founding member of the board of directors of the Science National Honor Society (www.ScienceNHS.org). Among his numerous awards, he is a recipient of NASA’s Exceptional Achievement Medal, the Director’s Special Commendation, and the coveted Silver Snoopy award-the only award to fly in space. He routinely advises numerous academic programs and institutions, and he is a champion of education throughout the world. When he’s not on the road, Jack cherishes his time together with Kathleen: his lifelong love since high school, found five states away after 27 years apart. (You’ve gotta love the Internet!)

ISTE’s making it happen is an internationally recognized awards program for educators in the field of educational technology integration in K-12 schools. The program identifies and rewards educational technology leaders around the world for their commitment and innovation. TIE is proud to be presenting two deserving individuals with this outstanding award during the Sunday and Monday Keynote Sessions.

Monday Session Descriptions 9:45 Always Hovering Around: The Homework Vampire – Villainous or Vital? Room 7 Jo Hartmann - TIE Homework has its devotees and its detractors. Each side can present a sound case but most educators would agree that homework can suck the energy out of them every night as they pore over papers and enter grades. Neither a liberal dose of garlic nor a stake through the heart of a pile of uncorrected assignments seems to work. Discover where homework came from, what its purposes should be, how to encourage the return of completed homework, how much it should count in grading, how other countries handle the homework dilemma and also have some of your additional queries answered. Or perhaps you can contribute some answers to the discussion. Tame your vampire in this session.

Monday Session Descriptions, continued 10:55 $50 Interactive Whiteboard - Fact or Fiction? Room 12 Trent Moehlman & Jannette Moehlman - Rapid City Area Schools You have dreamed about an interactive whiteboard in your classroom but the school’s budget is busted. You asked your spouse if you could spend $2000 on a Promethean Board for your classroom and they are still laughing. Would they laugh so hard at $200? How about $50? With a Wiimote and a few other low cost items an interactive whiteboard is a reality. In this session, you will be introduced to the hardware and software needed to create a low cost interactive whiteboard for your classroom. We will share our successes and failures in creating our $50 interactive whiteboard. A demonstration will be included. Classroom Teachers • Real-World Tools • Emerging Technology 10:55 Comics, Graphic Novels and Online Comic Creation Sites Room 13 Mark Geary - Dakota State University Adolescent Literacy is one of the hottest topics in literacy education today, and graphic novels and comics are widely viewed as a point of engagement for disinterested youth. This presentation will discuss why graphic novels are important, as well as how students can create comics and storyboards digitally and online without artistic expertise. While much attention has been given to the value of having students be visually literate readers for the 21st century, less attention has been given to how they can be content producers. By learning how to write comics, using any content the instructor chooses, students learn how to interact with literacy materials and to share what they have learned online, all without html skills or even artistic creation skills. Whether the student is producing a book, a movie or analyzing the content of their course textbook, understanding how to write in comic format gives them greater insight into how movies are made (with storyboarding) and how to express themselves in a visual medium. Participants attending this breakout session will become more informed on the value and uses of the comic/graphic novel format, as well as several online resources that can enable students to quickly and easily “write” comics. Classroom Teachers • High School • Visual Literacy • Web 2.0 10:55 Creating Videos, Podcasts, and More Room 10 Alan Hansen - Apple Inc iLife ‘09 is the latest version of Apple’s powerful, easy to use set of creativity tools, including iMovie, GarageBand, iPhoto, iWeb and iDVD.

Many different ideas will be shared for using video to enhance reading, writing, social studies and science. These ideas can be adapted to different grade levels and abilities. This is my first year with the Flip, so I will also share my own and my students’ progress on our journey. Because this is a sharing session, I hope it will trigger even more ideas for us all. Classroom Teachers • Middle School • Student Engagement • Innovation/Creativity 10:55 Free and Inexpensive Internet Resources for Regular and Special Education Exhibit Hall B Tina Miller - Children’s Care Hospital And School There is a wide variety of excellent web sites with free resources for all types of teachers. Searching through these web sites can be fun, but time-consuming. This presentation will highlight some of the best Internet resources that the presenter has found for use with students in the K-12 classroom. Internet resources will be given for productivity, creativity, graphics, presentation tools, content areas, educational games, music, art and some sites that are just plain fun. This will be a fast-paced presentation as we briefly look at some of the sites together. Some of the web sites will have free on-line or downloadable programs for instructional use. Other web sites may require you to pay a small fee. In addition, we will be covering sites and resources that will have particular usefulness for individuals who work in special education or who have learners with unique learning styles. These sites and applications may contain auditory output for auditory learners, or text combined with graphics for visual learners. Please bring any ideas of free web sites that you have found to be useful for use in the classroom to share with others. You may even get a great idea for keeping yourself occupied during breaks at the TIE Conference! Classroom Teachers • Technology Across the Curriculum 16

24th Annual TIE Conference


10:55 HELP Close the Achievement Gap in Math Exhibit Hall A Sandy Pringle - Tools For Schools A demonstration and discussion on how embedded sheltered instruction principles and a focus on developing academic vocabulary has proven to increase both math and ELA achievement in ELL and special education learners. While most efforts at improving results for ELL learners focus on reading and language arts, math achievement has lagged. According to the most recent NAEP results, fewer than four in ten fourth- and eighth-graders are proficient in mathematics; up to 70% of ELL learners fail to reach proficiency in math. This session will present a research-based and engaging web-based intervention originally designed for ELL learners. It has been shown to increase math proficiency for all struggling students by using embedded sheltered instruction techniques, with a strong focus on developing academic vocabulary. Developed according to the principles of Sheltered Instruction and SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol), HELP Math for ELL is effective for students in grades 3-8 who need to develop academic language and prior math knowledge in order to achieve proficiency. These same techniques have been proven to be equally effective and able to make a difference for special needs students. HELP Math is the only web-based math intervention specifically designed for ELL learners. Shown to address the needs of all students struggling to reach math proficiency, it has received the highest rating of any technology product by the US Department of Education’s GPRA review for three consecutive years. Suggestions for implementing research-based strategies that increase student achievement will be also be presented. Classroom Teachers • HS • Multicultural Literacy • Student Engagement • Math for ELL • SpEd Intervention 10:55 Microsoft SharePoint Services Room 2 John Hohn - Apex Technology Solutions Group SharePoint is a powerful tool that allows for web based collaboration and document sharing.

Classroom Teachers • Web 2.0 • Interpersonal/Collaboration 10:55 My Footprint: Teaching Students Digital Citizenship Room 8 Geoffrey Sheehy - Rapid City Area Schools In a digital world, the question is not whether our students will leave a mark. The question is, “What kind of mark are they leaving?” Enter My Footprint SD, a web-based resource created for TIE schools to introduce students to the concepts of digital citizenship and internet safety. In this session teachers will find out how to initiate discussions about digital citizenship with primary through secondary students. Classroom Teachers • Emerging Technology 10:55 Online Learners Up Close and Personal: Why AP? Why online? Room 1 Mary Cundy - Northern State University Come to this session and hear a student panel of current online learners talk about the challenges, successes and opportunities of online learning. This year, 193 students from 67 of South Dakota’s 156 public high schools are taking Learning Power online AP courses. What do these “real” students have to say about their studies?

Monday Session Descriptions, continued 10:55 South Dakota’s Response to Intervention Room 7 Susan Sletto - Response To Intervention & Becky Cain - Positive Behavior Intervention Support Response to Intervention (RtI) is a systems change approach that uses scientifically-based research methods to improve student success and school climate by supporting staff and students using positive and proactive instruction and strategies. This session will define the RtI approach for academics and behavior (also known as Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, PBIS). RtI is the practice of providing high quality instruction/intervention matched to student needs and progress monitoring, and making important educational and behavioral decisions. The project has a combined total of 34 pilot schools implementing RtI which address either the academic or behavior elements, four sites are addressing both areas. Participants will be on different levels of understanding and application of the RtI process. Discussion will center briefly on how implementation of RtI typically proceeds through 3 stages and will explore the essential components of a strong RtI delivery system as outlined by the state of SD. General • Innovation/Creativity • Student Engagement • Professional Development 10:55 Teaching Students How to Solve Problems Room 14 Terri Cordrey - Partners For The 21st Century & Vicki Henschel - Britton-Hecla School District From his book Teaching for Tomorrow, Ted McCain poses the following question. “What skills will students need after they graduate from high school to be successful in the world of technologically driven change in the 21st Century?” The author believes that technology skills are secondary in importance to problem solving skills. Regardless of what technology students have at their disposal in the future, problem-solving skills will be the critical factor that determines their success. Teachers from the Partners for the 21st Century, a Title II Part D Ed Tech grant, will share techniques on how to incorporate the 4 Ds of Problem Solving: Define, Design, Do, and Debrief into your classroom. Cohort teachers will share tips on how to write ill-structured problems and how to incorporate role playing scenarios, discuss new ways to evaluate student work, and explain how technology tools are used to enhance the lesson.

FLUENCY 3.0 Angela Maiers

Web 2.0 and emerging technologies have provided us with a new platform to engage, communicate, and connect in unprecedented ways. But, we ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Web 3.0 presents an entirely new way of seeking and sharing meaning. As facts become obsolete faster and information continues to exponentially grow, literacy and basic technology skills are not enough. Web 3.0 demands a new fluency; a new understanding of how knowledge is created, constructed, and shared.

www.angelamaiers.com www.twitter.com/AngelaMaiers

Together we will examine several emerging trends that will profoundly challenge our fundamental assumptions of what it means to be a learner, teacher, and citizen in the 21st Century. I will lay out what is most essential to know and teach as we all prepare to operate in this new world. Join me as we challenge one another to think deeply about the answers to the following questions, but more importantly to push one another to ask new ones:

• What lies ahead for learners as the web continues to evolve and change? • What challenges and opportunities do we face in a Web 3.0 world? • What are the implications for current methods of teaching, learning, and assessment? About Angela I am proud of my 20-year career in education, especially the years I spent as a classroom teacher. I am currently working as an independent consultant dedicated and committed to helping DOE’s, schools, districts and teachers reach their goals in literacy and literacy education. I feel fortunate for the opportunities and extensive experiences I have had working with educators. I spend my time teaching, researching, writing, speaking, and conducting seminars across the country in the areas of literacy, learning, and 21st century education. My work is featured in the National Research Council Yearbook, multiple professional journals, and most recently in Urban Schools Most Promising Practices, published by the International Reading Association. As an author of several books, articles, and curriculum support materials, I continually strive to connect research and scientific theory to real world practices. My classroom demonstrations and direct work with students, keeps me grounded in ensuring that the research base stays within the context of real classrooms and schools. For the past six years, I have created, developed, and organized multiple literacy institutes reaching thousands of educators across the United States. These summer institutes provide an innovative and unique venue for educators, administrators, and curriculum developers. Every student reaches their highest literacy and learning potential when they are led by such knowledgeable and passionate leaders. Connecting higher education and the work done in schools, I have spent years working at the undergraduate and graduate level teaching courses in reading, content area reading, emergent literacy, and assessment. I received my bachelor’s degree from University of Iowa and did my graduate and post graduate work at Drake University. I currently live in Clive, Iowa with my husband and two children, Ryan and Abigail and our dog, Buttons.

Tuesday Session Descriptions, continued 11:30 Recursive Writing in the One-to-One Classroom Room 6 Bryon Christian - Hill City School District While the digital age has introduced a myriad of tools for the classroom, it has also ushered in a casual carelessness for the student writer in the high school classroom. Instead of redrafting with paper and pen, students can copy, paste, and delete their way through a writing assignment in record time. One effect of this has been a watering down of the recursive writing process in favor of a more linear one: draft, edit, present. The implication of this for the instructor-as it is with the use of all technology-is to be inventive in our implementation. Through the use of a few common tools, participants will not only realize a streamlining of the recursive writing process but a substantive improvement in the quality of writing by their students as well. A collaborative approach to the writing process while utilizing 21st Century skills will be the primary focus. Tangential to this is the task of making all of this work in a paperless classroom. Participants will also learn to incorporate other genres of presentation-video, audio, graphic designas a function of student writing. The roles of students and teachers alike in avoiding plagiarism will also be discussed. Participants can expect to leave this presentation armed with tools that will effect change in their classes. Specific software employed includes relatively commonplace tools-Word, Windows Journal, and student monitoring software. While the specific environment targeted is a one-to-one classroom with tablets, the strategies outlined will be german to the general classroom.

Established in 1986 as a regional, non-profit project, Technology and Innovation in Education (TIE) is administered by Black Hills Special Services Cooperative, an intermediate educational agency. It is TIE’s mission to serve as a source of professional development that assists and empowers educational communities to respond productively and responsibly in a networked global society. On an annual basis, TIE provides professional development activities for more than 10,000 educators across the region. TIE has a membership structure designed to address specific needs of South Dakota schools. Nearly 100% of school districts and public universities in South Dakota, and many in surrounding states, choose to participate in the TIE membership program. In addition to ongoing work responding to a diversity of school needs, TIE administers a host of major grants programs at the state and federal level. TIE has established a strong reputation as a collaborative partner and progressive leader committed to helping schools build essential capacity for improving teaching and learning in these changing times. Noted as a change agent, TIE “walks the talk” by modeling effective processes for accomplishing meaningful organization development and change. TIE leaders appreciate the challenges facing practioners in the field and strive to identify practical, meaningful strategies for applying the learnings of sound educational research to teaching and learning in classrooms. TIE offers online workshops free of charge to faculty members in TIE Member schools. They provide the content most in demand through an asynchronous format that works for the busy schedules of teachers, administrators, and other education professionals. Many workshops even have the opportunity for graduate credit. TIE strives to stay on the cutting-edge, developing new workshops with a focus on technology integration, 21st Century skills, and content-based strategies. All of our professional development activities strive to meet the standards set by the National Staff Development Council, while addressing the needs of adult learners. TIE also offers exclusive technology integration training options for schools and districts, all of which may be customized based on specific needs. Potential topics include: blogs, web literacy for effective research, visual literacy, collaboration, digital footprint, Internet safety and virtual learning environments. Format options include face-to-face workshops, webinars, online workshops developed for a faculty/staff with Elluminate support, and ongoing staff development with a combination of on site and online for a series of days (hybrid).

24th Annual TIE Conference


Welcome to the 24th Annual TIE Conference! from Dr. Julie Mathiesen - TIE Director

TIE Advisory Board

Welcome to the 24th 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 – nationally recognized keynote speakers, stimulating breakout sessions, a technologyrich exhibit hall, fabulous prizes and much, much more.

TIE 2010 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 2010 partners is reflected in the breadth and depth of conference activities. I’d like to point out several features of 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. 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 #TIE10 Twitter hashtag here http://xrl.us/ TIE10. 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 second annual 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. 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://conference2010.tie2.wikispaces.net. We’ve encouraged presenters to post presentations, handouts and links so that you can easily access them after you return home.
