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 just started blogging! I haven't gotten to much about technology on yet, but I will. Please stop by and comment so I feel like someone actually reads my posts! : )

Well I don't have my personal blog! In future I would definitely wish to share my link./
I've been blogging since 2007. My blog is a classroom blog where I post most of my lesson plans, activities and student resources.

Hi all, I am an industry based e-learing educator working in the alcohol and other drugs sector in Australia.  I write a blog about alcohol, drugs and harm reduction with an e-learning twist :)  Already posted a couple of articles about hoe social networks can assist (or hinder) behviour change, and how drug and alcohol workers can use social networks to address life long learning.  I'm currently working on an article about how drug and alcohol researhers can disseminate scientific evidence to drug and alcohol clinicians using Twitter.  Any way you can find the blog at http://stonetreeaus.wordpress.com/

 

Cheers

I have a blog, it's written in French for those who would like to practice their French reading skills.  The blog is directed to teachers who want to use Web 2.0 tools in their classroom.

Web 2.0 et éducation

I've been blogging since 2007. My classroom blog has evolved into a place where I can post weekly lesson plans, activities, and resources. Periodically parents, students, and other teachers post comments.

 

I am a High School Social Studies teacher. Most of my posts pertain to History, Political Science, Psychology, World Studies, Art, and Literature.

My blog is on Blogger. I use the blog here to link to that. Everyone with a blog should be doing that. I love the idea of link sharing.

 

Our new blog is called Pop Goes The Classroom and its goal is to provide different web 2.0 and media resources for the classroom. It's located at http://www.popgoestheclassroom.com

 

I don't just blog myself but include articles written by others so if you have a blog post you think might fit the theme let me know.

 

 

Hi Lynn,

   Your idea of getting to know each others blogs is a great idea. I am a software developer and have worked in higher education. My blog is at http://happydeveloper.blogspot.com

 

Thanks

Jim

Thanks!

I switched blogs for our class blog.  Our new blog is now located at: http://www.collisionblast.com/author/butler-bcrn/

 

I hope all other teachers have a "needed" great holiday break! :)

Here is my blog. This is my second year with this blog and I am hoping to expand it!  Any thoughts or suggestions...please let me know :) I am pretty restricted in layout and this makes it a little "boring," however i am working on this!  Our district likes us to use this platform...we will see what happens!
