Overdue recommendation for Will Richardson’s book

This is criminally overdue: I got a copy of Will Richardson‘s excellent book, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms, but I’m embarrassed to say that I misplaced it in the mess that is my office and my life. It surfaced like an iceberg of knowledge and I have to tell you that it is very good: clear, concise, useful. A far more important critic than I likes it, too. I apologize to Will and to you for taking a few weeks too many to recommend the book. But if you’re planning to use these tools in classrooms — or other organizations — I’d buy it.

: LATER: Another far more important critic, Howard Rheingold, likes it, too. Like me, he’s taking Will’s advice for the college classroom, not just elementary and high school. I’d say it works in any learning environment — which should mean companies, too.

    Sounds great. Thanks for that. However, it should be a “far more important critic than I,” not “me.”

    Looks cool but, no video podcasting in Education? For folks interested in that particular topic, go to Vloggercon in SF June 10-11.
