5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!, June 8, 2011
This review is from: Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms (Paperback)
Reading this book you feel like your actually having a one-way conversation with someone who is teaching a lot of new and exciting stuff. Throughout the text the author is constantly giving tips and information to make the things he is telling you about easy to understand and even use. In chapter 6 the author talks about the advantages of using twitter and how it's possible to use twitter for troubleshooting as well as to hear about new and exciting ideas from other professionals. Diigo is also discussed and it is noted that because it allows you to bookmark websites and is a web application, you can use it from any computer anywhere because of your unique login. Delicious is a site that allows you to use specific tags that allow for your students to easily access and find the work. Chapter 7 is a discussion on Flickr and the possibilities that come with using it. Being able to annotate items within a picture allows individuals to see and discover what they are looking at. The idea of using tags with the pictures allows anyone, if the picture is public, to view the picture. Chapter 8 is about podcasting, video and screen casting, and live streaming and how these tools work and are used by many people. This chapter brings together all of the tools in this chapter from iTunes to UStream offer many opportunities to provide teachable videos as well as to have students create their own as well. This book has many valuable aspects for the world of educational technology and would be a great asset to any classroom teacher.
