About the book:

In the "Information Age," information will be the raw material that we work and build with, and the Internet will be the quarry from which we mine that information. Raw Materials for the Mind, by 18-year technology educator David Warlick, begins with a potent philosophical look at why our classrooms must change, and the part that technology plays in this revolution. The book quickly focuses on practical ideas that harness the Internet for teaching and learning. Topics include conducting deep and revealing searches of the World Wide Web; evaluating information found on the Internet; importing Internet-based information into word processors, spreadsheets, and graphics tools; ideas for taking advantage of the unique qualities of Internet-based information; and techniques for publishing student work onto the Internet.

An additional chapter discusses the steps for planning and designing school and school district web sites and free services available on the Internet for creating interactive web environments -- web sites that "work for you." One reader reports, "I found the viewpoint so electrifying that I had to read parts to some of my teaching friends."
