How to...Weave the Web Into K-8 Science

NSTA Press Book (also see downloadable pdf version of this book) by: David R. Wetzel

Like a search engine for science teachers, How to... Weave the Web into K-8 Science is your custom-made guide to bringing the best of the Internet into your classroom. Author David Wetzel has done the work of locating online materials for you. The book offers resources for Web-based science teaching and learning plus online technical help for both beginners and experienced computer users. You even get instructions for developing your own Web page. In three concise chapters, this book covers:

§ The rationale behind using Web-based resources for science teaching, including how they support national and state standards, and tips for making the most of the Internet.

§ Practical strategies you can put to work immediately. Topics include one-computer and multi-computer classrooms; wireless and hand-held computers; Web-based learning centers and lessons; WebQuests; virtual tours, labs, and field trips; and multimedia presentations.

§ A wealth of Internet resources, including search engines, directories, and NSTA's own SciLinks and Webwatchers. Of special interest is an extensive section of Web-based resources listed by category and science-content area.

Best of all, in a special companion Web site, you'll find updated Web addresses as well as new resources that came out after this book was printed.
