HSTI 2021 “HSTI @Home”

Main Conference - June 23-24, 2021

CIO Summit - June 21-23, 2021

Pre-Conference Workshops - Will be back in 2022



Welcome to HSTI 2021


Welcome to the 28th edition of the Hot Springs Technology Institute Conference. We are excited to announce that HSTI ® will be a hybrid event this year and although we desperately wanted to do a full in-person conference, the current situation simply would not allow for that. So instead, we looked at the numbers and made some decisions that we believe are in the best interest of the conference and our attendees.

  • The main conference will be delivered virtually and will include a myriad of breakout sessions, keynotes, and the opportunity to visit with vendors.
  • We will not be doing a traditional Pre-Conference as in years past. A single reduced price will cover all our virtual offerings and include our exclusive “HSTI@Home” t-shirt, delivered to your school or co-op.
  • The “CIO Summit” will be hosted onsite as an in-person event. This recent addition to HSTI ®  typically draws around 100 participants and is specifically designed for the State’s IT professionals. (All ADH guidelines will be observed)
  • We have also decided to host our keynote speaker onsite. Kim Bearden will deliver her performance both in person and virtually.
  • Finally, it is our hope that conditions will allow limited attendance onsite and the ability to do your virtual HSTI ®  sessions from our facilities. This would allow a limited number of attendees to gather in our new 1000 seat auditorium to see Mrs. Bearden perform live in person. Expect an announcement regarding this possibility around a month before the conference. Once again, all ADH guidelines will be observed.

For 28 years now, HSTI ®  has offered incredible opportunities for professional development delivered by education professionals from around the state and country. I want you to know that your colleagues at HSTI ®  share your challenges and goals in Ed Tech and are committed to providing timely content every single year. Please make your plans now to join us in June for the conference “Built by Educators for Educators”.
