This interactive panel session aims to inform the further creative development of SITE's web sites. It will be particularly relevant to groups within and beyond the USA who are developing "clearinghouses" and/or new "on-line tool sets" for technology in pre-service and graduate teacher education. The session will also consider ways in which SITE can collaborate with related on-line communities. The session goals are: § Exchange information and contacts with one another § Get a better sense of the recent landscapes of on-line development § Enable participants to envision and form new alliances and partnerships § Facilitate better use of resources § Create an atmosphere for more focused planning and deployment of new capabilities § Open the possibility for broader applications and co-learning among innovators § Consider collaborative links with leading edge scholarship in technology and education § Link with the SITE survey of teacher educators' needs and potential contributions
