Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Through this book, Seamon and Levitt attempt to guide those interested in "developing a training program for the integration of technology" with an emphasis on the classroom teacher. Excellent for computer novices, their book offers a step-by-step plan for integrating computers into the classroom. The Web-Based Learning model involves six process steps that build a sequential program of increasing difficulty: Guided Tour, Scavenger Hunt, Web Pages, Internet Discovery, CyberInquiry, and WebQuest. For each step, the authors provide clear explanations, outlines, templates, and rubrics. The Exhibit Center provides examples for each lesson, and the Technical Corner at the end of each chapter offers invaluable references to the appendix. The WebQuest template in one chapter is especially helpful. The appendix fully explains those technical skills necessary to perform each task, and it is supplemented with Web page illustrations. Nicely presented with illustrations, forms, outlines, and charts, this resource offers a wealth of information. 2001, Linworth, 224p,

School Library Journal
The premise on which this title is based is: "To be successful in integrating technology into classroom instruction, training for teachers must first focus on effective lesson plan design and teaching strategies. Without mastering these skills first, no amount of technical training, no matter how effective, will translate into valuable technology units." The "Web-Based Learning Model" is a plan that can be initiated for professional staff development as well as for student guidance in research. The model is sequential and is designed for media specialists, technology trainers (frequently the librarians), and teachers, stressing collaboration throughout. The foundation of the model is the development of Essential Questions, which are related to state curriculum standards, and support the concept and topic to be taught. Evaluation rubrics are included with examples, forms, and templates. This book will require study and the involvement of administration and staff, but using the model is a practical approach to promoting "active learning-that is, students collaborating, working together to solve different parts of the same problem, and producing a new way of looking at information."
