New technologies broaden the range of opportunities for teaching, learning, and communicating; and they can provide students with a rich learning environment; but the options can be daunting. Barr's new volume helps librarians and educators find the best in DVDs (educational movies and documentaries), educational software and CD-ROMs (including educational programs and computer games of the Sim City variety), and subscription Web sites. Coverage is from January 2001 to the present.
Full bibliographic information, a brief descriptive annotation (including grade level), and review citations are provided for each title. Comments on best values are incorporated when appropriate. Extensive indexing makes access easy, and an introduction addresses selection, acquisitions, cataloguing, shelving, and security of new media. Grades K–12.
