She also created educational materials and conducted workshops for K-12 library media specialists and teachers on using online searching in the curriculum. She presented throughout the United States across curriculum areas at conferences. As director of the English Education Program at San Jose State University for five years, she worked closely with classroom teachers and administrators to provide guidelines for mentor teachers supervising English student teachers at SJSU. She creates training materials, including distance education online courses and self-paced module in searching techniques for Dialog and is editor of the Dialog customer e-newsletters. She is the author of three previous books published by Neal-Schuman.

Review:

Crane's book is a 'how-to' and 'why should I?' manual all rolled into one easy-to-understand text. It is firmly grounded in traditional education strategies and methodologies, yet it provides insight into current academic and technology trends. This excellent resource should be widely appealing to teachers, librarians and school media specialists. --Voice of Youth Advocates

In this extensive resource, teachers will find a wealth of suggestions, ideas, unit plans, and answers to questions pertaining to how to integrate and use Web 2.0 tools throughout the curriculum. The book will also prove useful to school media specialists for library implementation and to collaborate with teachers on the development and utilization of these exciting tools. --School Library Journal

"Crane's book will be a valuable resource for teachers and school librarians ... As a Youth Librarian at a public library, I will use many of her ideas and information in planning programming for children and teens. I highly recommend this title for all education and information professionals who strive to engage their twenty-first-century students and library patrons" --Colorado Libraries
