From the Publisher

"This guide for library media specialists, technology educators, and classroom teachers shows how to bring digitized primary source materials, such as photos, letters, maps, films, and music, into the classroom. . . . A core chapter

explains the ‘mystery' and buzz surrounding Web 2.0, using clear, nontechnical language, and offers a list of popular Web 2.0 tools, with descriptions and suggestions for using them with primary sources."

VOYA - Lynne Farrell Stover
The author establishes the foundation of this effective teaching text by defining Web 1.0 as a one-way medium that dispensed information and Web 2.0 as a multidirectional communication and publishing tool. This informative, inspiring, and pragmatic resource book showcases Web 2.0 and focuses on using primary sources to engage students in meaningful learning. Primary sources—original historical documents—are becoming readily available online through local, state, and national digitization programs. This availability makes it possible for students to research and react to historical artifacts, letters, photographs, maps, and recordings. When students explore and question the past through interaction with virtual artifacts, they are experiencing authentic learning. The author acknowledges the necessity of addressing educational standards and communicating with parents and other educators while detailing the process, technology, methods, and materials needed to teach 21st Century skills to inquiring minds. The major motivation for introducing the students to the value of primary sources, however, is to emphasize how the power of "story" connects the present to the past. The ten well-organized chapters contain easy-to-understand definitions, sensible solutions to administrative concerns, classroom- ready activity sheets, and a wealth of Internet resources. Each well-titled chapter stands alone. The appendix features a helpful bibliography of digital collections listed by state, which the author acknowledges as being representative and hardly comprehensive. This book would be useful to both the novice and seasoned educator. Reviewer: Lynne Farrell Stover
