Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Erica Thorsen
Broken down into two sections, this text is an excellent resource for librarians and educators eager to use or already using the Internet as an instructional tool. The first section gives a general overview of the Internet; how to get connected; and descriptions of its many forms including e-mail, World Wide Web, FTP, and Gopher. Addressed here are the benefits of using the Internet for instruction and a variety of ways to teach students effectively how to use the Internet while at the same time incorporating the Internet into the curriculum. The second section provides a breakdown of Web sites by subject. Each subject area has a number of Web sites previewed and annotated. Brief lessons that are subject specific and outline clear information skills utilized by students are also provided for some Web sites. Reproducible masters with goals, objectives, procedures, grade levels, previewed Internet resources, and extension activities provided at the end of every chapter can be easily implemented into a lesson plan or used as a template for other projects utilizing the Internet as a resource. Definitions, examples, illustrations of concepts, and actual interfaces throughout the text will enhance comprehension. A wonderful resource for educators on all levels of computer literacy due to its clear and concise language and creative ideas. Index. Illus. Source Notes.
