24467-3 If you only want the best experiences for your children on-line...For years, Brendan Kehoe's Zen and the Art of the Internet has been warmly welcoming newcomers to the Internet. Now, Kehoe has written a Zen book just for parents and educators. This book has all the warmth and simplicity that made Zen and the Art of the Internet the world's most well-loved Internet book. It also has something today's parents and educators need very badly: good advice on helping children benefit from the Internet revolution without falling victim to its dangers. You'll take a quick tour through the basics that so many Internet books assume you already know. You'll learn not only about the hugely popular World Wide Web, but about all the other Internet educational resources that don't get as much publicity: newsgroups, file transfer sites, electronic mail, and much more. And, as with Zen and the Art of the Internet, you'll get information that's usable no matter what kind of computer or Internet connection you may have. Everything in this book has one goal: to help you help your children. You'll learn where the best Web sites for kids are. How to reach other parents and educators who share your interests. Where the Internet's danger spots are -- and how to avoid them. Practical ways to supervise your children online. You even get a trial copy of CyberPatrol's software you can use in school or at home to prevent children from accessing the areas of the Internet where they're most likely to get into trouble. If you're responsible for the growth and well-being of a child, take the advice Internet experts have been giving for years. Get the Zen book. Get Children and the Internet.

Figuring out how to use the Internet as an educational tool in kindergarten through 12th grade can be a tricky matter. Brendan P. Kehoe, Victoria Mixon offer practical guidance for parents and educators in a book that focuses on real-world issues. While it's loaded with valuable introductory information and resources, what makes the book stand out is its level-headed discussion of such issues as the computer's role in the conflict between educational paradigms and case studies of schools that have put the Internet to work in their classrooms. Includes a demo copy of Cyber Patrol software on CD-ROM.From the Publisher:
