Book Description

Aug. 30 2008 1591584671 978-1591584674

The abundance of formats available today provides a rich learning environment but also poses challenges to librarians, teachers, and parents. This new volume in the respected Best Books series guides readers to the best movies, educational software and games, and subscription Web sites for children and teens. Entries feature full bibliographic information (including grade level), a descriptive annotation, and review citations. An introduction addresses selection, acquisition, cataloging, shelving, and security of new media. A great selection, collection development, and programming tool. Grades K–12.

New technologies broaden the range of opportunities for teaching, learning, and communicating; and they can provide students with a rich learning environment; but the options can be daunting. Barr's new volume helps librarians and educators find the best in DVDs (educational movies and documentaries), educational software and CD-ROMs (including educational programs and computer games of the Sim City variety), and subscription Web sites. Coverage is from January 2001 to the present.

Full bibliographic information, a brief descriptive annotation (including grade level), and review citations are provided for each title. Comments on best values are incorporated when appropriate. Extensive indexing makes access easy, and an introduction addresses selection, acquisitions, cataloguing, shelving, and security of new media. Grades K–12.

Product Description

Review

"…the book is a convenient compilation of resources that are otherwise hard to identify, making it a desirable purchase, particularly for libraries that are just starting to build game collections."

-

School Library Journal



"Bottom line: This is a recommended bibliography."

-

Teacher Librarian



"… it is highly recommended for school and public libraries, and academic libraries that support teacher or librarian preparation programs."

-

ARBA



"This book has been designed to assist librarians and media specialists with the four tasks of evaluating existing collections, building new collections or enhancing existing collections, providing guidance to young patrons, and preparing bibliographies and events. Additionally, due to the ways in which this book has been organized, it will surely serve as a wonderful addition to the bookshelves of those teachers specifically interested in incorporating the latest media into their daily teaching. . . . This book should be a welcome addition to the shelves of librarians, practicing teachers, and teacher candidates."
