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"

Andrea Gaggioli blogs at Positive Technology Journal , "Mind, brain, and emerging technologies"

Andrea is a researcher at the Psychology Department of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, in Milan, Italy. He was one of the people behind NeuroVR, a set of free virtual reality environments used in therapy. NeuroVR can be adapted for use in education and school-based counseling.

Be prepared to spend a bit of time on his site! He posts links to interesting jobs from time-to-time. For example, there is an opening for a post-doctoral researcher in Multi-user Virtual Environments for Learning at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
Great idea - good to know about the blogs you all have shared.

I maintain the "Place-Based Education" blog at placebased.typepad.com. It focuses on local studies topics, tools and trends, as part of our Massachusetts Studies Project at UMass Boston.
Interesting - I like the concept of place-based education. I'll read more about it soon.
Well, here's mine...

Lynn,

Thanks! I'm running WordPress in the back-end and there are many great and customizeable themes for it.

I use mine to reflect on all things EdTech and Library related (and a couple of off topic thoughts now and then).
Hi! we have a multilanguage blog for Italian language students and teachers. We are in Florence, Italy!
Here is a blog I came across recently- I am not sure if it was posted in this forum:


Your Not So Normal Everyday Teacher
Hi Everyone~

My blog is in the Maze at www.masterymaze.com. My focus is to discuss issues, share tools and knowledge relevant to the teachers and students who use my site for review materials and podcasts. I also add things that are just plain fun! I am looking for favorite videos and podcasts to add to the site. See the Forum post here for more info. My site is a collaborative effort as well!

Thanks for asking!
