Substantial Content Revisions

The third edition of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms retains all of the core content that made the previous editions so successful, however examples of technology use have been updated throughout and the book includes a new chapter on social networking sites. In addition, the author cites a number of new references about the evolving mode and impact of today’s technologies.
 
Richardson expands his coverage of tools that have grown increasingly popular in the past few years, such as Twitter, Diigo, and Flickr, and adds detailed, up-to-date instructions for these sites. Additional updating includes current examples of online media use, deletion of references to obsolete sites, and inclusion of new sites to illustrate the text.

The newly added chapter, titled Social Networks: Facebook, Ning, Connections, and Communities, presents information about how to set up and use social networking sites and discusses personal and classroom applications. Richardson also includes innovative examples of how different schools have utilized these tools.
