encyclopedia of world geography with complete world atlas (usborne internet-linked books)

Summary:
This is first and foremost a single-volume world geography textbook that serves as a starting point for student research or discussion. The layout and graphics are eye-catching while access to website links, downloadable pictures and video clips provide the student with opportunities to enjoy learning by integrating available technologies into the learning process.
Educational Themes:
This is a unique and authentic learning tool. Students raise a question or are assigned a topic to report upon. The text provides preliminary information on the topic. The student can then use the graphics, websites, photographic downloads etc. to find information that will help her/him to answer the question or complete the report.

Little Kid Reaction
Review pending.
Big Kid Reaction
The academic community has struggled to develop educational tools, materials, and strategies that genuinely integrate technology into the traditional classroom in a truly meaningful way. The team who developed this work has provided a prototype that should be helpful to educators who are responsible for developing curricula and learning tools in all academic disciplines. Wish I had this book when I was teaching.
Pros:

This is a very worthwhile book. It genuinely attempts to integrate the computer, graphics, websites and other technologies into the traditional classroom. There have been myriads of attempts to do that but most have not fared well.

Cons:

None.
