For both novice and experienced "techies," this practical resource shows how to use blogs and other new Web tools for innovative, interactive teaching and motivated learning.
"Whether it’s blogs, or wikis, or RSS, all roads now point to a Web where little is done in isolation . . . That’s not to say that in this new world students don’t do their own work. But it does mean that responsibility for that work is in some way shared. Learning is a continuous conversation among many participants."
"Richardson shares first hand classroom experience of how the read / write web opens up new possibilities for students to learn from each other and from authors, scientists, and other professionals."

Will Richardson's book is a wonderful resource to guide teachers through their journey into the 21st Century. It not only offers detailed descriptions of 21st Century tools, but shares examples of current uses in education and explains how you too can enhance education. Teachers of all technology levels can pick up this book and understand the hows and whys of wikis, blogs, podcasts, RSS, and more. I recommend this book to any educator who wants to break down the traditional walls of the classroom to experience the world of education not only with their students but as professionals too. I feel so strongly about this book that I am hosting a professional book study this summer with other teachers from my school district.
