The deadline to submit proposals was January 8.


The TIE Conference has gained a reputation of having the best classroom teachers, network administrators and educational administrators share their strategies, methods and best practices with their fellow educators at the largest education technology conference in South Dakota. Over the past 28 years, TIE has evolved from being the forerunner in sharing technology innovations with educators to the current needs of technology integration, curriculum mandates, improved student achievement and effective assessment and evaluation.

Conference Registration And Stipends

A session may be presented by any number of people, but only the main presenter and one co-presenter will receive complimentary conference registration (which will be forfeited if they both do not present). Only the main presenter will receive a stipend of $300 per indepth session/$100 per breakout session. Stipends are available to classroom teachers, not organizations that may financially benefit from promoting their services.

The main presenter and first co-presenter will automatically be registered for the conference when their proposal is accepted. Any additional co-presenters must register and pay for the conference.


Any individual in a position to gain monetarily either directly or indirectly for a product they endorse is considered a vendor. Vendors must have a booth in the exhibit hall before their proposal can be submitted for consideration. Vendors will not receive a stipend and are strongly encouraged to team up with a local K-12 teacher for better likelihood of acceptance.

Types of Sessions

In-depth sessions are 4 hours in length. They will be held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center or the Holiday Inn next door Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.

Breakout sessions are 55 minutes each. They will be held in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Monday and Tuesday. See agenda for times.

Notification of Acceptance and next steps

Notification of acceptance (or non-acceptance) will be emailed to the main presenter in early February at the email address provided on the application form.

If your proposal has been accepted, learn about the next steps.
