'We need a solid book explaining and illustrating and letting teachers know about these powerful tools. This book meets the need in an awesome way!' - Mike Muir, Director, Maine Center for Meaningful Engaged Learning

'This author is a gem! It startles me to be 'pulled' so happily through a text about these new Web tools in the context of good literacy instruction' - Gary Graves, Senior Research and Evaluation Advisor, Technology in Education, Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory

This book brings teachers a bold vision and on-the-ground Monday morning practicality. It will move educators to think differently about technology's potential for strengthening students' critical thinking, writing, reflection, and interactive learning. Will Richardson demystifies words like "blog," "wiki," and "aggregator" making classroom technology an easily accessible component of classroom research, writing, and learning.

This guide demonstrates how Web tools can generate exciting new learning formats, and explains how to apply these tools in the classroom to engage all students in a new world of synchronous information feeds and interactive learning. With detailed, simple explanations, definitions and how-tos, critical information on Internet safety, and helpful links, this exciting book opens an immense toolbox, with specific teaching applications for:

o Web logs, the most widely adopted tool of the read/write Web

o Wikis, a collaborative Webspace for sharing published content

o Rich Site Summary (RSS), feeding specific content into the classroom

o Aggregators, collecting content generated via the RSS feed

o Social bookmarking, archiving specific Web addresses

o Online photo galleries

This book makes it possible for anyone, no matter how inexperienced, to harness this amazing technology for the classroom today!

It says second edition, but that still is not current enough. This is the edge the Internet has over books…immediacy.I learned a few new things…podcasting...annotating Flickr…Technorati…but, overall, I’d have done better to skip the book and seek out info on the net. Leer reseña completa

Sobre el autor (2006)

A parent of two middle-school-aged children, Will Richardson has been writing about the intersection of social online learning networks and education for the past 10 years at Weblogg-ed.com and in numerous journals and magazines such as Ed Leadership, Education Week, and English Journal. Recently, he shifted his blogging emphasis to willrichardson.com. Formerly a public school educator for 22 years, he is a co-founder of Powerful Learning Practice (plpnetwork.com), a unique professional development program that has mentored over 3,000 teachers worldwide in the last three years. His first book, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms (Corwin, 3rd Edition 2010) has sold over 80,000 copies and has impacted classroom practice around the world. His second book, Personal Learning Networks: Using the Power of Connections to Transform Education, was released in May, 2011. His articles have appeared in Educational Leadership, EdWeek, English Journal, Edutopia, and Principal Leadership, among others, and over the past six years, he has spoken to tens of thousands of educators in more than a dozen countries about the merits of learning networks for personal and professional growth. He is a national advisory board member of the George Lucas Education Foundation and a regular columnist for District Administration Magazine. Will lives in rural New Jersey with his wife, Wendy, and his children Tess and Tucker.
