      >This year's annual meeting,
      > sponsored by the National Science Foundation, will focus on
      >
      > a) the use of DLESE by educators
      > b) collaborations between educators, developers and collections
      >creators
      >
      > Who should attend:
      > We hope for strong participation from teachers, curriculum developers,
      >materials developers, content/data providers, service providers, and library
      >creators. This meeting will provide a
      > unique opportunity for these stakeholders to collaborate and participate in
      >DLESE's continuing development. What's in it for you?
      >
      > Goals for participants and for DLESE:
      > As an attendee, you will be asked to suggest or choose a disciplinary
      >strand as the focus for your participation in the meeting. The first goal of
      >the meeting is for groups representing
      > each strand to explore issues regarding the use of DLESE collections and
      >services by producing a preliminary version of a lesson, curriculum, or
      >educational unit by the end of the
      > meeting.
      >
      > A second goal is to initiate partnerships to develop tools, services, and
      >collections to support the use of DLESE in specific disciplines. These
      >activities will result in usable DLESE
      > resources and provide valuable feedback to DLESE developers.
      >
      > Ongoing interaction among the disciplinary groups following the meeting
      >will be supported by communication tools and web services available through
      >DLESE to foster continuing collaboration and resource development.
      >Opportunities will also be provided for specialists in collections,
      >technology, and materials development to
      >discuss challenges unique to their interests.
      >
      >Optional skills workshop: A skills workshop will be offered prior to the
      >meeting on Saturday, June 29. These sessions will be focused activities
      >designed to teach specific skills related to curriculum and materials
      >development. The topics of the skills workshop will depend on your requests
      >and our resources. The sessions could
      >address technical as well as pedagogical skills.
      >
      > Funding:
      >The cost of the meeting would be your airfare plus approximately $300 for
      >lodging in the Cornell dorms (new, air-conditioned, single occupancy with
      >bathroom shared between 2 rooms) and all meals. Other arrangements may be
