Review:

How can the teaching profession survive in the Information Age? Ask multimedia educational guru Bard Williams, Ed.D., and you will find your answer in The Internet for Teachers. This edition is full of the latest and greatest material on connecting students to the Web, including the fundamental definitions underlying all those slashes and dots.

Designed for as broad an audience of educators as possible, The Internet for Teachers makes few assumptions about you or your students: as long as you can point a mouse, you'll find something valuable here. E-mail, newsgroups, FTP sites, the World Wide Web, Web cams, and more are all outlined to help you get the most out of emerging consumer Internet technologies, and you'll also find the teacher's directory of interesting and valuable sites an easy way to broaden your horizons.

The CD-ROM accompanying the book--good for both Mac and Windows users--includes software to help you connect to the Web such as MindSpring Internet Access, Netscape Communicator 4.5, Eudora Lite 3.1.3, and more. Whether you're in a prep academy or a one-room school house, you have equal access to the power of the Internet; the first step is to get connected. --Rob Lightner
