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"

My goal is to create a blog that has great 2.0 sites for educators! Please comment if you would like to add a site. Updated daily!
Sounds great! I'm currently working towards a masters in Educ. Technology. A major portion of my job as a school Library Media Specialist will be helping my teachers become comfortable with technology and get them excited about using it in their classrooms. This blog would be helpful in that regards.
Glad you shared.
My blog aims to engage people living outside of high poverty neighborhoods, so they will do more to help kids in inner city neighborhoods connect with learning, mentoring, and career development activities. It's the Tutor/Mentor Connection blog at http://tutormentor.blogspot.com

I also lead one of these programs, called Cabrini Connections, and use the blog to connect our youth, volunteers and supporters. This is http://cabriniblog.blogspot.com

This list is useful, but it's long. Have you set up a blog page to organize blog titles by topic or focus area?
I really liked the fact that you are so committed to your work. I learned alot from your blog and can see the amount of time you put into your work. It is commendable. I currently work with special ed kids and I am currently in a credential program for it. I am learning the pluses of using blogging as an educational tool and can apprieciate it's relevence by your blog. Thanks
Thanks for posting on this topic -- it really provides some excellent resources for all of us.

I've just started blogging and my blog is a hodge-podge of ideas and thought I've culled from various resources and my own experience. My basic premise is that I'm struggling to keep what's best of our educational traditions and make them responsive to new technologies and globalization.

Here's the address:

Hi, I just checked out your blog and was pleasantly surprised. It was not what I expected at all. I clicked on a couple of your links and found some interesting things. Thanks for sharing.

Hi - Everyone I just transferred my blog to edublogs new URL http://hshawjr.edublogs.org/
I'd like to share our classroom blog with everyone. It started out as a "me" kinda of blog but has recently taken a new direction. I have several teams of kids who write different columns.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

Jim, I cannot get onto that website. Are you able to check the url as my explorer wont open it. I would like to see what you are doing.
Hello Anne, I think Jim's blog address is http://visitmyclass.com/blogs/theskinny/default.aspx
My blog is TeachEng.Us. It is kind of a lifehacker.com for teachers. I am always looking for writers. As of now we have writers from Canada to Florida and get 1000+ direct hits each day.

Here is the widget I created for it:

If you are interested, feel free to contact me.
Hear is a link to my 'Pairadimes for Your Thoughts' blog. My thoughts on Education, Technology and Learning.

I haven't really publicized this yet, but I've revamped my 'Practic-All' blog with a weekly update for my staff called Digital Magic. Feel free to do something similar for your staff... you can take things from my previous weeks with little effort on your part:-)

I think a better way to do this would be to create a wiki page like this one on the Support Blogging wiki... It could have a 'feature' section where new bloggers are highlighted for a week to help promote new voices.
