Mrs. Bell started her writing career by authoring a series of nine books for Heartsong Presents (Autumn Love, Contagious Love,Inspired Love, Distant Love, Healing Love, Compassionate Love, Love Remembered, Love Abounds, and Mended Wheels).

In recent years, she went on to publish three educational technology books "Creating Digital Video in Your School," "Handheld Computers in Schools and Media Center," and "Exploring Web 2.0 - Second Generation Interactive Tools" along with one children's book "The Adventures of Scampy Churchmouse," an historical novel "Rebekah's Journey" and an biographical novel "The Sister of Mary Dyer: The High Price of Freedom."

A native of Adel, Iowa, Mrs. Bell received a B.A. degree from the University of Northern Iowa, a Library Media Endorsement from the University of Montana, and a Master of Library and Information Studies from the University of Hawaii.

Review of Exploring Web 2.0 by Ann Bell
Exploring Web 2.0: Second Generation, is a straight-forward venture into
the complex world of Web usage. The author's meticulous research into every possible application of educational features and virtual devices to be found on the Web has resulted in an easy-to-read and understand compilation of available multi-media tools.
The result is an honest and detailed text for the student and lay person
alike to inspire use of these technologies. The reader is encouraged to evaluate and select new information and technological innovations to pursue a career or simply to use in their online experience. Countless links to Web sites guide the reader to immense resources of technological material. With this in-depth information, one can't lose in their quest
for feasible ways to navigate the labyrinth of Web 2.0.
Explanations of technological material and language peculiar to the genre is understandable to all levels of users.

GOOD FOR THE MODERATE WEB USER TO THE BEGINNER
If you are like me, fairly web-knowledgeable but feel, you need to understand more of what is out there, this is the book for you. If you are clueless, this book can help as well, but you might read it a bit slower and poke at the links provided in detail. Take your time, it is an interesting read.

QUICKLY BECAME A SOURCE I PLAN TO GO BACK TO
I've read this book cover to cover once. Now it has over 20 post-it-notes tabbing pages that have links that I plan on investigating. This is a book that is going on the shelf at work and will be dog-eared quickly. My colleagues have also expressed an interest in getting their hands on it as well.

THE BREADTH AND DEPTH ARE JUST RIGHT
I already knew about Blogs, Social Networking, Geo-tagging, photo sites and a bit about Wikis but only knew the names of the rest. Ann Bell the author takes a teacher's role in this book and spells out what each are. She doesn't necessarily tell you why you would use one site over the other (that would be a book in itself and be out of date before it was published) but she gives you what you need to make your own judgment. This really was a brave undertaking for its breadth of topics as well as depth of coverage.

ALL SORTS OF DETAILED INFORMATION, YOU CAN PICK AND CHOOSE
Within the book there are links and in some cases detailed instructions on hardware and software for what it takes to create some of the items such as Pod and Vod casts. Knowing what to do to create these if you have ever done any video work, is no small feat. While I didn't test her instructions, I'm sure at some point I might. It is clear the author's predominant focus is education and many of the links reflect that.
