MIT alum Kim Foley has written the sourcebook on Virtual Field Trips and their application in the K-12 classroom. Foley's accumulated experience in media technology and education serves to create a practical, no-nonsense book filled with useful information that can be put into practice immediately.

By the time you have finished with this read, you will be well acquainted with the range of field trips types, formats and options available to you on the Web. Foley's direct approach is refreshing. If you plan to use the Internet in your classroom, this book is a must-have.

About the Author:

Foley has been at the forefront of technological breakthroughs working with High-definition Television back in the 80's, and digital video, when both were in early research stages. Since the early-90's, Foley has taught computer and digital video courses, produced and co-designed interactive, multimedia packages for major publishers, and managed team software development. Over the past several years, Foley has developed web-based, virtual field trips for the education market, and designed and maintained several educational sites.

Foley also created Field Trips Site, a site dedicated to providing free, high-quality, virtual field trips for the K-12 classroom. In the first two months of being launched, this site received a prestigious USA TODAY Education award, and many of the field trips have received and continue to receive praise from the National Science Teacher's Association, in addition to other awards and recognition. She offers both on-site and online training in the use and creation of Virtual Field Trips.
