There are a nmber of books on the market celebrating the possibilities and opportunities that Web 2.0 technology might provide to schools. This one is as good as any on the market. The authors know what they are talking about and their audience is both administrators and tech directors, although we are recommending that teacher librarians would benefit greatly since so many are utilizing this technology. It is always good in a topic like this to compare one’s own expertise with that of the authors to see if they have thought of angles you haven’t. While the material is dated the instant it is in print, there are enough current applications present to bring more possibilities to teaching and learning than one can barely manage. We appreciated the various theoretical stances and reviews of the current ideas of the place technology should take in schooling. Of course, we are concerned that online databases and libraries are ignored. However teacher librarian leaders go on reminding everyone of the great uses we know to make and our willingness to benefit from other ideas no matter where they emerge. Recommended both for the novice and the moderately advanced looking for new ideas or gaps in understanding.
