Will Richardson’s Book

I just finished reading Will Richardson’s book, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms.

As you might expect, it’s an excellent entry-level primer for incorporating Web 2.0 tools into the classroom, including both why you would want to use blogs, wikis, rss, social bookmarking, etc, in your teaching, how you might use them, and practical guidance for how to get started with each.

For me, the most interesting chapter was the last one, What It All Means, which presents Richardson’s view of University 2.0 or at least School 2.0.

I highly recommend the book for anyone wanting to learn about these tools.

    I have read Will’s book and found it very easy to follow. Several teachers are using the book this summer to complete a book study for professional development.
