Overview

How can teachers and librarians successfully incorporate the Internet into their school's curricula? Valauskas, Library Journal's monthly computer book review columnist and also a columnist for the magazines Online and Database, and Ertel, former Director of Knowledge Systems for Apple Computer and founder of the Apple Library Users Group, compiled this guide to show how actual, successful Internet programs have been used in elementary, middle, and high schools to teach math, science, history, literature, music, and more. Included are such examples as classes in which students download French periodicals on the Net to practice language skills; look at weather data from a Gopher server, use the data to make a map and a weather forecast, and return to the Net to check their accuracy; and access promising Gopher files on genetics for classroom debates on the merits of genetic engineering. Program descriptions are written by the faculty members and/or school library media specialists involved. Each example contains goals and results; budget, technical, and curricular information; plus photos and illustrations. A discussion of the Internet's future educational prospects, a bibliography about the Net's educational applications, a listing of the best sites for curricular integration, and an index round out this innovative resource.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
With so many books out there on the Internet for teachers and librarians, I wondered how this one could possibly be useful or different. It turned out to be both. The book consists of first-hand accounts by teachers and librarians who have integrated the Net into a variety of schools and districts. The accounts are inspirational, and could easily be used or modified for other schools. There is something for everyone, at every stage of the game, from a section called "Developing Visions, Creating Infrastructures" to one about "Publishing on the Web." In a typically useful chapter, "Nine Rules for Using the Internet in Class," David Bell offers practical advice and soothing remarks that should help teachers and media specialists trying to use the Net with their own curricula. The appendices are excellent, and the bibliography lists books, periodicals, and videos that offer helpful introductions to the Net. Also included is a convenient list of the Web sites mentioned and their addresses, as well as a list of interesting sites organized by category. Altogether, this is a thoroughly useful book for elementary, middle, and secondary teachers and librarians.Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles
