This fourth book in the series is another excellent resource for teachers, which maintains the standard and the format of the previous three volumes. The books provide exemplification materials to support the teaching of ICT in the context of curriculum subjects. Activities are provided for year groups from nursery to Year 12 and almost all areas of the curriculum are covered.

The focus for this volume is on e-learning and many of the activities involve the use of online resources which are fully referenced with URLs. The first part of the book provides advice on planning: to integrate e-learning into the curriculum; to access on-line resources; to exchange information and publish on-line resources; to mentor pupils on line and to collaborate with pupils and teachers from other schools.

The activities are then set out in the familiar format with clearly stated learning intentions and notes on assessment and evaluation. The presentation is clear and colourful with examples of children's work, which make it browsable and attractive. Appropriately for a book with an e-learning focus, many of the activities are supported by full case study descriptions and lesson plans available on the Lewisham website.
