The TIE 2013 Conference is a three-day event designed for K-12 educators, educational leaders, and those who want to immerse themselves in best instructional practices, seek support for digital learning, and study ways to transform their classrooms by using digital tools and resources.

TIE 2013 Conference attendees are encouraged and invited to join Schoology. Create your login today. Access the TIE 2013 Conference Schedule.
