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"

I'll look this up! Thanks.
Hi, I'm blogging about my experiences with educational technologies in Vocational Education and Training. Publishing a blog was difficult for me because I am a shy person, but I hope that others can use my musings to support their own journeys.

I called my blog Cafe Chat when some of my friends and I decided it would be great to have an online place to discuss educational topics, just as if we were meeting over a cup of tea.
Simon,

You will find that your words and reflections will touch a great number of people. Thanks for sharing!
I just started this blog for a class that I'm taking. http://love2read4life.edublogs.org/

It's aimed at Library Media Specialists, teachers and parents. I hope to develop a place to share ideas on how to encourage our students/children to read, enjoy reading and become lifelong readers. I've set up a way to create booklists, post fun activities and share links to other fun websites.

Hope you can check it out and participate.
Thanks

Hey,

I do blogs on PowerPoint and PowerPoint presentations that I find cool and interesting. I also highlight some new innovations in the PowerPoint sharing field and list some ideas for their uses.

Give it a look. here
