The current context for teacher education in many countries worldwide has brought new technology and teacher education to the forefront of policies, with major initiatives to renew education through technology. The Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) has moved to a new stage of maturity with over a decade of scholarship and the participation of over one thousand teacher educators. We have a significant role in promoting reflective, participative leadership for the deployment of new technology in education, particularly teacher education. The new governance to be debated during our 2001 annual conference is accompanied by changes in our conference and the emergence of innovative virtual environments to enhance our community of knowledge. This builds upon the innovative and artful social and technical engineering already underway and aims to spread our leadership and to encourage cross-generation participation. SITE's aim is to model good practice for the emerging knowledge society.
