Here's a book that describes Web 2.0 tools in-depth, models Web 2.0 tools through classroom examples, explains how to get started with each tool, presents practical unit plans illustrating the use of Web 2.0 in the K-12 content-area curricula, and identifies and describes what tools are most useful to educators for networking, productivity and insight into the technologies. Part 1 of each chapter answers many questions you will have about Web 2.0 and social networking tools: What is the tool? Why use it with students? How are K-12 classrooms using the tool? Can you provide me with specific examples for my science, history, or language arts curriculum? Part 2 describes specific tools and the steps to get started. Part 3 contains a detailed sample unit plan, teacher exercises and a summary following. Screen shots of web sites are used to make the advice straightforward and easy to understand. You'll find an entire chapter on special instruction for ESL students with objectives, tools, and K-12 classroom examples. To help you implement Web 2.0 tools beyond the curriculum, there's even a chapter devoted to technology tools specifically designed for teachers and librarians to use for personal productivity, communication, and collaboration. The conclusion offers ideas for integrating Web 2.0 in art, music, and health.
