Editorial Reviews

Erica Boling
"Hits the nail on the head by emphasizing how technology can be used in ways that go beyond one-on-one student use of software programs and teachers’ use of Power Point for presentations. The book emphasizes the collaborative work and learning that can occur when educators take advantage of all that the Internet has to offer."
Karen Stearns
"This is a book that I woulduse immediately with my preservice teachers or department if I were a K-12 supervisor. Important, though, is getting it in teachers’ hands as soon as possible."
tech 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. "
September 2006 CHOICE
"An absolute must for anyone attempting to keep up-to-date with Web tools for the classroom. Preservice or practicing educators, teachers, administrators, parents, or interested parties can find all they want to know about the new tools of the Read/Write Web, including what they are, what they do, how teachers use them, and the first steps to take toward using them.

"
Los Angeles Times
"Clearly and persuasively written, the book is loaded with information about the cutting-edge Internet features that make up so-called Web 2.0. Richardson meticulously makes connections between these tools and the classroom. He is comfortable writing about both the pedagogical implications of the technologies and also the directions for using them. "
New Zealand Studies of Applied Linguistics
"This is the book to read if you are keen to use Web tools in your classroom but aren't quite sure where to start. Richardson's book makes clear not just how to integrate such tools in your classroom, but why you should and what difference it can make in your teaching. "

    Blogs, Wikis and Podcasts

    I purchased this text for a class that I was taking. The subjects are not entirely new to me, so this gives me a basis for evaluating the accuracy and relevance of the information given in the text. The author has researched, used and received feedback from educators about the subjects and use of topics in this book and is reflected in the revisions that are made to it. It is current, if there is such a thing in the realm of technology text. The text provides both pedagogical and practical information on just how to safely and effectively use blogs, wikis and other web tools in the classroom. Examples, resources and alternate resources are given throughout the text, which is very useful for those of us who want to put the concepts into action in our classrooms and schools. The Table of Contents, Reference and Index are useful and well organized. I would strongly recommend this text and be advised that there is a March version now available.
