Blogs, wikis, podcasts, and other powerful Web tools for classrooms / Will Richardson.

Richardson, Will. (Author).


While written for K-12 teachers, this book provides practical advice on using the Web for education. It includes how-to steps for teaching with blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, social bookmarking, online photo galleries, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.
"This resource is more descriptive of various tools than practical "how-to" applications. I've attempted to do a wiki with my English 12 (adult education) students but didn't go beyond downloading files. Since wikis are a collaborative tool practical advice (how to not overwhelm yourself) would have been more useful. This is okay for someone who is unfamiliar with the tools (blogs, wikis, etc.) and is willing to spend hours learning about them. Also note that the writing in this book is dense and chatty." – September 2010 Exemplary Literacy Materials Online Reviews.
