Editorial description(s):

From School Library Journal
This comprehensive reference provides one-stop shopping for most of the myriad issues surrounding Internet use in today's schools. It begins with a planning guide for schools that do not yet have school-wide network connections to the Internet and provides guidance for formulating policies, designing systems, assembling a team, and implementation. The second part, "Educator's Guide to Good Internet Practices," is aimed at schools already connected to the Net. It provides an overview of its uses in a variety of subject areas and gives ideas for integrating the Internet into the curriculum. The final section discusses the variety of options available in hardware and software.

Book Description
Educators, librarians, parents and school board members are looking for ways to utilize the Internet. This manual for educational decision-makers on building a K-12 network is written for both computer-literate readers and those with little experience. Part I summarizes steps in planning, funding and implementing a network, with examples of proven methodology. Proper functioning, upgrading and future directions are discussed. Part II is a guide to the use of the Internet, from policy and protection issues to "virtual field trips." Rural and remote learning educators will find a section appropriate to their needs. Part III explains specific technical guidelines for network infrastructures, with details on network topology, protocols and the types of connection media.

Reader review(s):

This book is a godsend!, March 9, 2000
This book is the only thing I have found that explains exactly what a school has to do to get connected to the Internet and how to do so without making some huge mistakes. Other books talk about using the Web, and that's great. This one talks about what a school principal needs to know: how to get community support, how to plan site facilities.
