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"

The blog of the Powell Center for Economic Literacy where I'm employed is titled MV=QP. That's a basic equation in economics linking money, growth and prices. The blog is for all teachers interested in integrating economics and personal finance into their curriculum. It can be found at

Dear Friends,

I have merged my Education-themed weblogs. It was a marriage that seemed inevitable. In reality, I was testing the waters with Typepad and Wordpress (self hosted) and Wordpress won. The content on both blogs was similar and was centered around provoking thought about school/teaching practices at this particular point in the evolution of Education.

I will continue this work, though, with a greater intensity and focus as I am no longer "split" by the hypothetical prospect of writing for two audiences.

For those of you who subscribed to Another Brick In The Wall, please change the RSS feed to:
http://educationalparadigms.com/?feed=rss2

And here is the winning blog which will continue to be updated daily. (All posts from Another Brock are now part of this weblog). My personal blogging goal is to put out 1-2 quality posts per day on "education", "education 2.0", "education technology", "teaching" and "learning" among other related topics.

This is a tremendous site! I'll use it often now that I have found it. Please look at my blog for ideas; I teach senior English at Brandon Valley High School in South Dakota, United States. The address: scholarlynx.blogspot.com.
Thanks for this suggestion Lynn - I am a science and maths teacher at a small rural school in Victoria, Australia. All of our students between year 5 and year 7 have their own blogs, as well as many other students and teachers. Links to them all can be found at our school blog:
Hawkesdale P12...A Global Techno College

My blog, about science teaching and learning, web 2.0 tools and other exciting things we are doing at our school is at Technoscience.

Please come and visit us and leave a comment for our students and teachers - you may even develop a global partnership!
Lyn, I am most grateful for the OdioGo tip. I embedded it today in my blog, and showed a few friends too.
Thank you. This is the easiest text2speech podcasting tool yet.

Isn't it a cool feature?
Engaged Learning Revisited: Four Video-clips for Reflection

I revisited one of my previous blog-posts about engaged learning and revamped it. The new post contains four "must-see" video clips that I think would be interesting not only to educators, but for parents and others who are concerned about education, technology, and the future of our world.

A couple of the videos include interesting information visualizations.
I publish iTeacher, a blog that shares ideas about using Information and Communication Technology to create a learner-centered educational environment that encourages collaboration, creativity, synthesis and higher-order thinking skills. (http://iteacher.edublogs.org)
Good luck in your middle school job! 7th graders can be interesting creatures!
