3.0 out of 5 stars Are we still a calling it IT??? 3 May 2008
This book is useful if you only have a very basic knowledge of IT. It reads a little like a glossary and although it has good ideas, the explanations are superficial, requiring you to find another text more detailed.

It also gives no details of online communities such as Wikispaces or My Space and how they might be used to enhance learning.

Using the internet creatively requires creativity, and this book doesn't have much of that.

Buy it only if you have no clue about IT or ICTs for that matter.
