Welcome to
Tales from the Electronic Frontier,

a new WestEd publication offered in print and electronic formats.

What is Tales? In Tales, ten teachers share actual classroom experiences using the Internet in K-12 science and mathematics. Their vivid, first-hand accounts illustrate how this powerful tool can enhance teaching and learning. Drawing on teacher successes and dilemmas, Tales can help expand classroom resources, engage students in new ways and connect with other teachers. Tales includes over 50 annotated resources, sharing information about online math/science organizations and Web sites.

How are the print and World Wide Web versions of Tales related? At this point, they cover the same content and are appropriate for the same audience.
