From School Library Journal
Keane offers a way to enhance booktalks with technology and to invite students to explore new ways to talk about books using Web 2.0 tools. The volume is divided into 11 chapters from booktalking concepts to more advanced uses of technology including scanners, digital cameras, computer software, and audio recording. Also included are chapters on software programs such as PowerPoint and iMovie as well as Internet sites such as YouTube and Amazon. The sequence of chapters is designed to allow easy access to information for both novice and experienced computer users. Step-by-step illustrated instructions are given for each type of technology-based booktalk, and the many online resources related to the activity are listed at the end of each chapter. Lesson plans meeting specific educational standards and evaluation tools are provided. This excellent resource shows ways to use existing technology to augment booktalks and to expand the experience beyond the classroom.—Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD END
