 producers; strategy sessions on how to make content easier for
 children, parents and teachers to find; discussions of public and
 private initiatives to create more quality content for children; and
 a session to discuss concerns about marketing and advertising on
 websites geared towards children.

 "The marriage of technology and education can be a long and happy
 one," said Jon Goodman, Ph.D., executive director of EC2 @ USC.  "We
 are beginning to see the promise of online learning in the
 demonstration projects being showcased at this Internet Summit."

 The conference is being organized by NTIA and the EC2 at the
 University of Southern California Annenberg Center for Communication.
   Disney Online, America Online, Microsoft, MCI, IBM, The Learning
