"The purpose of Keane's book is to present information on teacher-facilitated, student-led investigations and projects. Keane describes the CIDE process: concept, investigation, design, and execution. Students are guided through the process of using technology to efficiently create professional-quality products to share new knowledge gained. Students are taught to carefully evaluate resources to determine validity. Useful handouts are included on using graphic organizer software and how to search effectively. In-depth instruction is also available on how to create powerful projects by leading students through the steps needed to best utilize various technology. Teachers are provided with useful checklists, student handouts, and rubrics. Permission is given to freely copy and distribute these items. Internet sites are listed for further information on techniques used to produce quality products. The process outlined in this book will help to prepare students by teaching research skills and an efficient and effective way to organize data. This is a user-friendly and thoroughly useful book. Many states are now requiring teachers to incorporate technology standards and Keane's book is a must-have in helping teachers to feel comfortable with this new requirement. I envision it being used frequently. You might even want to purchase more than one copy for your professional section. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection
