Making the Most of the Web in Your Classroom A Teacher's Guide to Blogs, Podcasts, Wikis, Pages, and Sites

by Timothy D. Green

Making the Most of the Web in Your Classroom A Teacher's Guide to Blogs, Podcasts, Wikis, Pages, and Sites Synopsis

The book is divided into two sections. The first provides a background for teachers regarding what World Wide Web is, a brief history of the Web, using the Web with Students, and the research behind Web use in the classroom. This section is not an exhaustive coverage of these topics. Rather, it is meant solely to familiarize teachers with the Web. The second section of the book takes a more detailed approach. It is a step-by-step process guiding teachers through the design, development, and implementation process of the Web for use in the classroom. This process includes how to evaluate Web projects, how to manage Web projects, and how to integrate Web projects into the curriculum. Teachers will learn how to design Web sites and will be able to guide their students similarly through this process to develop student - created Web projects.

Making the Most of the Web in Your Classroom A Teacher's Guide to Blogs, Podcasts, Wikis, Pages, and Sites Press Reviews

Should be a mainstay of any serious teacher's library: it tells how to translate Internet technology into classroom applications, from designing Web sites to helping students develop their own Internet-based projects. -- The Bookwatch, June 2008 A good introduction and a great resource. I would buy this book and recommend it to media specialists, instructional technology teachers, and district coordinators for both content and technology. It is a user-friendly tool on many levels. -- April DeGennaro, Gifted Education Teacher I have not seen a more teacher-friendly resource for using the Web in the classroom. The authors took both novices and experts into consideration when writing the book. A must-have in every school. -- Elizabeth Alvarez, Math and Science Coach
