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"

Hi Lynn,

My blog is blog.learningtoday.com is directed to share resources for teachers. Right now I have posted stories teachers can download for students in Reading grades K to 5th grade.
I try updating it at least once a week with content that is relevant to teachers in K to 5th grade... I'd love to hear feedback as to what topics to talk about... Enjoy!

Thank you!
Hello -

I recently started a blog called The Virtual High School Teacher that is designed to help virtual high school teachers and tech teachers with technology and other resources.

Please check it out and pass it on: http://virtualhighschoolteacher.wordpress.com/

My blog - http://mclear.co.uk - I'm the CEO/MD of a few tech firms - Maybe reading my blog you will get an understanding of what the tech guys do behind the scenes to make learning possible in the classroom!.. Maybe!
I went back to school to take computer classes, and worked on a few programming projects, so I appreciate what techies do. Thanks!
If you are looking for some great resources tools and e-learning apps that will make your professional life a great deal easier check out my blog at www.edgalaxy.com with regular updates and lesson plans.
Hi and thanks for the opportunity to share!

All about my experience trying to integrate Google Docs, Calendar, iGoogle, and Blogger (as well as other 2.0 Apps) into my classroom. Written from the POV of a teacher, not a techie! LOTS OF TIPS~!
Thanks for the link to your blog- I have a difficult time keeping up with my Web 2.0 life, too, including Classroom 2.0. I have to schedule time for it during the school year.
I haven't seen many band blogs out there. If you know of one, please let me know. Here's my band blog:

Scott,

I think there are a few band/music blogs around. Do a search on the Classroom 2.0 site to find music teachers, and then see if they have posted blog links.
Thanks for posting this discussion. I love networking, blogging, and teaching. I look forward to reading the other blogs listed.

I have a class blog that I post to. I also have several students that I made authors. I think blogs are great reflection tools for all of the students. We're a technical program at a community college. Here is my blog http://BCRN.BlogSpot.com

I have another favor to ask. I have a Facebook group about to reach 100 members. It is not an educational group, but I would love to hit the 100th member or more today. You can follow group at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=107763438247&ref=ts

Thanks,

Donnie Smith
Here's the link to the blog for the online Instructional Media Master's Program at Wilkes University. If anyone is interested in getting more information, you can go to:
a) http://www.wilkes.edu/instructionalmedia, or
b) use the links on the Facebook page
c) contact Karina, the person in charge of the program, at karena.zdeb@wilkes.edu.
My blog is educationtechnologyblog.com. It is new this summer and is an attempt at filtering through all the RSS feeds I read on education technology so that I can post the ones I think would be most useful to teaching and learning in the classroom. It is a work in progress, but I still update it every day or two when I have something useful to post. I'd be happy if you stopped by.

My classroom site, if anyone is interested, is www.mrwylie.com


Thanks.
