The Web is an important source of information for teacher educators in general, and for those preparing teachers to use technology in particular. However, the quality of available Web sites varies greatly in terms of both content and design characteristics, and the overwhelming number of Web sites dealing with educational technology make it difficult to find excellent sources of information. This session will present the result of a study of sites dealing with educational technology (information technology in education) in which experts rated sites for technical quality and soundness of information. Common design and content problems will be discussed in the presentation. An annotated bibliography of sites rated as exemplary educational technology Websites will be distributed. To qualify for inclusion, a site must be rated as exemplary in terms of both content and technical design characteristics.
