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"

Here is my I just started a Blog on educational Technology - Back in October 2008 I attended a conference in Ontario were Will Richardson talked to us about all the new web tools for education. I feel that we need to "practice what we preach" and before you can use these tools and programs you need to try them out first. He also inspired me to check out the Classroom 2.0 and start to join professional learning communities. Looking forward to reading more of the Blogs posted.

Here is my humble beginnings.

This is a great idea Lynn.

I am interested in communicating about using technology in character education and have created a
Program that is gaining International interest, but I'm alway looking to improve and change with advances
in technology. Our website is www.cpschallenge.com.

I am blogging at http://psychchallenge.blogspot.com/

I am also very active on Twitter. My ID is chapin55.

You gotta love the internet:)
I signed up for Twitter, but I just haven't had time to use it. I still get behind with my e-mails and returning phone calls!
I am a fourth grade teacher in Beaufort, SC and we just started a blog www.mrsheatonsclass1.blogspot.com. This is our first attempt at a blog (we started blogging on Friday, December 5th with another class in Colorado...on their blog www.room24.blogspot.com). This is an experiment for us (our class and school). My goal is to get students blogging once a week. We have tried using WizIq with the same Colorado class - we had success in the dry run but not on the actual event (broadband is such an issue in our district). I have looked at several blogs in this post and contacted the teachers, who have been very helpful. I'm glad you started this thread in the forum!
