Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Web - Teaching is a very common title for a very uncommon book. Written from the perspective of a college teacher, the volume provides how-to instructions for the use of the World Wide Web in teaching, as well as a soul-searching discussion of the appropriateness and effectiveness of different instructional approaches.'
Science Books & Films, December 1997

'From a simultaneous review of Internet Links for Science Education and Web Teaching: 'One cannot finish this book without understanding why science is best learned through an interactive inquiry-based approach....These two books provide a breath of fresh air and clarity....Both books construct the pedagogical groundwork required to successfully integrate the Internet and the Web into the new paradigm in science education.'
BioScience, May 1998
