"The Amazing Web 2.0 Projects Book" was a collaborative initiative (coordinated and edited by Terry Freedman) that brings together ideas and experiences from 94 contributors around the world. The hands-on practical aspect of the eBook means that, rather than just talking about Web 2.0 tools, there are how-to suggestions and guidelines, as well as reference to benefits and pitfalls and challenges to be prepared for, and how to handle them. The resource is free.

Some of the comments that Terry has received about his book include:

David Kapuler: "This is one of the best collaborative resources I've seen on Web 2.0. It covers everything from wikis, blogs, to digital storytelling and podcasting. Terry Freedman...does a masterful job of organizing the content which has been included from such high esteemed educators from around the world, such as: Kim Cofino, Silvia Tolisano, and Shelly Terrell".

Paul Hamilton: "Any teacher with an interest in effectively reaching every learner in his or her classroom–with meaningful, accessible, and engaging learning activities–would do well to take a look. The book is well organized, with activities categorized according to the general age range of the learners involved".

Stephen Downes: "It's pretty light and breezy, but the information is well-structured (using a template that identifies things like age ranges, applications used, reactions and outcomes) and the content is clearly and well written throughout".

That's sooooo good to know. I was really impressed with the concept, and the end product exceeds expectations :-)

This is such a fab book - have shared it with many in the last couple of weeks and it's currently re-engineering several classroom focal points this coming term alone. :)
