Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Providing a different approach to Web development in a straightforward and well-presented style, this manual gives educators an easy alternative to often times more complicated Web development software. With easy-to-understand text and corresponding illustrations, users will be able to develop their Web pages and have them up and running in no time. The book starts by discussing the different types of Web pages and the advantages and disadvantages to each, and then moves on to specifically show how to make Web pages using PowerPoint. It finishes with information on getting pages published and the variety of methods for doing so (a school's server, free hosting, etc.). The 'Library Media Connections' sidebars throughout the book nicely highlight how library media specialists bring their own special skill set to this process, which is a good reminder for the library media specialist, and a hint to teachers who may be using this manual. Readers who have not previously used PowerPoint have no need to worry, as the instructions are clear and easy to understand. For educators who are eager, but overwhelmed by creating a Web page, this manual provides the tools to do so in a simple but attractive fashion. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
School Library Journal
D'Ambrosio's stated purpose is to demonstrate how classroom teachers and library media specialists can work together to develop educational Web sites and student Web portfolios. Microsoft PowerPoint is espoused as an easy tool for Web site construction, especially for those with little or no experience. The information is divided into two major categories: "Teacher-Created Web Sites" and "Student-Created Web Portfolios." The first section includes examples of types of educational Web sites, with pros and cons of each; how to start the process; MS PowerPoint basic techniques; Web hosting and publishing Web sites; and getting noticed worldwide. The second half of the book defines a Web portfolio, provides types of content included in one, lists tips for successful experiences in the computer lab, and advises on the presentation of completed portfolios. Tips for teacher/LMS collaboration are included throughout the chapters in sections labeled "Library Media Connection." Each user-friendly chapter concludes with a mini-glossary. The index is somewhat limited by a lack of specificity. This welcome title provides basic information to help teachers and librarians integrate technology into classroom instruction.-Beth Jones, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
