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.

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's my Environmental Science class blog from last year, which gave my students a forum to talk with each other about some controversial topics about our environment:

http://justintarte.blogspot.com/ - I am currently a German teacher aspiring to be an administrator. I love learning and reading, especially as it pertains to educational leadership and social media / technology integration.
Zane Education provides subtited online education video that teaches 11 subjects and 250 topics for the K12 curriculum.

I look after and Maintain the Zane Education News Blog

There are some thought provoking articles being added daily.

Thanks!
I have a blog called Beginning Reading Help. I share resources to help anyone teaching children learning to read. The top of the blog has pages where I've collected reading resources, free online stories, and free online reading games. http://beginningreadinghelp.blogspot.com

I use my blog as a classroom extension. I post things I think my students will like as well as homework assignments (to be completed as blog comments).
I also use Twitter and Delicious as additional out-reach/resources for parents and students beyond the classroom.

I haven't started a personal blog about teaching or tech yet, but I am considering it.
I'm a computer tech teacher in my school and my blog is all about different cool tools or pieces of technology that can help teachers and parents.

a twitter account will come later...
My school/tech blog is on Classroom 2.0. My posts attempt to show the differences between 20th and 21st Century education.
I have a blog for my Grade 8 classroom. On it, my students and I post on ELA, Math, and what is going on in our school in general. We are beginning to link up with some other Grade 8 class blogs in other parts of the world, and although we are new bloggers, we can see how exciting these connections can be.

I would welcome (constructive !) suggestions on how to improve my blog.

That's really interesting!  I recently began working with preschool students with the goal of preparing them for classrooms with only English instruction.  I'm assuming the class is primarily taught in English because your post is in English.  Do you work primarily with non-native English speakers, then?  If so, how do you incorporate both English and the students' native language into the classroom?

Thanks,

Emily

This is my first year teaching science, so I've started a blog for my kids and parents to check out. I put relevant science stuff and extra credit opportunities online, and it's been met with great success.
