Format: Paperback
A GPS is more than a way to avoid getting lost, it can be a valuable teaching tool. "GPS and Geocaching in Education" is a guide to how to use Geocaching, a practice that uses GPS to teach its participants about the world around them and encourages real world problem solving. Fully explaining GPS and their use, offering many puzzle ideas to be done, as well as a technical review, Burt Lo gives plenty of ideas of how the activity can be used on any level. "GPS and Geocaching in Education" is a fine pick for any educator seeking to vary their lesson plan.

Format: Paperback
I thought this was an innovative, creative book, combining the best of geocaching with education. I don't recall seeing any other book with this theme. There are books on GPS, books on geocaching, books on teaching--but this is the only one combining all these themes. I think student will really like the lessons that come from this book. Who knows, maybe the teachers will become avid geocachers!

► RATING OF KEY FEATURES ◄
♦ Readability: Well-written, Easy to follow.
♦ Quality of Figures/Photos: There are occasional photos, which are also well done.
♦ Quality of Table of Contents: Extensive Table of Contents. Good Introduction as well.
♦ Quality of Editing: Clear writing style.
♦ Thoroughness of Index/Glossary: Extensive index is very helpful. Excellent explanation of terms in Appendix B.
♦ The author also includes the "National Educational Technology Standards" in Appendix C.
♦ Usefulness: Very useful and a lot of fun!

► SPECIAL FEATURES ◄
♦ The author provides Lesson Plans that incorporate finding geocachings as a starting point for other teachers.
♦ There is a nice section in APPENDIX A, called "Resources," which has a lot of good links.

► LIMITATIONS ◄
I notice that the book was publshed in 2010. There have been some significant changes in the geocaching world, so educators would need to update their lesson plans to incorporate these changes. For instance, new "virtual" caches are no longer allowed, which makes one of the lesson plans obsolete. Plus, the GPS technology, and logistics of loading cache locations has changed (for the better!)

All in all, a nicely designed book--the only one of it's kind, I think, which combines GPS/geocaching with lessons.
