I recently came across a few long-standing blogs that never crossed my path during my Google searches, and I was thinking that a Classroom 2.0 discussion about blog-sharing might be helpful, since we are members of "the social network for educators using collaborative technologies".

If you have a blog you'd like to share, either your own, or one that you'd recommend, post a reply with a link to the blog, the author's name, the focus of the blog, and perhaps a few words about why you find it interesting or useful.

Update: Follow me on Twitter

Here are my blogs:

TechPsych
Interactive Multimedia Technology

I have another blog that I use to post my reflections about what I'm learning in my mid-life journey as a computer/tech student:
The World Is My Interactive Interface

(I changed the name of the blog to reflect my current topics.)

Update 6/15/10
It has been a very busy school year!  The exciting news is that one of my schools has a multi-touch SMARTTable, and every classroom has an interactive whiteboard.  The teachers worked very hard to ramp up their IWB skills and I'm amazed at how quickly this interactive technology was adopted.    Of course, interactive applications and websites are pretty awesome on a huge screen or display!    The best part is that this technology has opened up the minds of a good number of students with severe autism characteristics.

In April, I participated in a workshop at ACM's 2010 CHI conference. The topic of the workshop focused on the next generation of human-computer interaction and education.

I also joined the SparkOn group, "a social platform for people that are sparked (inspired) by creative and emergent technologies"

Thanks for helping me out - you are right
Lorna, when I worked as a school psychologist at an elementary school in the 1990's, I did a lot of parent workshops. I also was involved with parent involvement efforts as a PTA volunteer. That was before blogging! I'll re-visit your site soon to look more closely at what you are doing.
Here is a link to my class blog. It has links to my other blogs as well as some of my students' blogs. The students' blogs are new and don't have anything on them yet. I am excited about the students ability to post on each others blogs.

Mr. C's Class Blog
Your class blog looks terrific.
I have been blogging with my 7th and 8th grade students last year and this year and it has been an amazing experience. Please keep us posted with how it goes.
Hi Lynn

I blog on visual learning and mind mapping as well as on any topics on educational technology that tickles my fancy.

Hi Brian - fellow school psychologist! I'm taking a visualization and visual communication class this semester, so I'm sure to find good information on your blog.
Great idea!

A blog club for students! What a great idea.
Hey Lynn,

I blog about art education in the digital age at the oddly named Carrot Revolution.

I also occasionally post (although not as often as I mean to) with some great edubloggers at Utecht Tips.

Nice idea for a topic, and I really enjoyed going through your blog! Thanks.

David
Thanks for sharing the links!
Thanks, Lynn.

I've got two:
http://educationalparadigms.com which is focused on exposing the gap between what is and what is possible in education.

The other is http://mymusictech.blogspot.com which is focused on music technology in education.

Great idea! Cheers-Andrew
Thanks! Do you teach music technology? I took a computer music technology class a few years ago. I used to play piano, but I play a Motif now.
