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"

Jeff,

Thanks for sharing your blog. I especially liked the pictures!
Deborah,

What a nicely organized blog! I took a quick peek at it and I will visit again. I'm sure this would be a great resource for parents of young children.
Hey all. Here's my personal learning blog http://amithestudent.wordpress.com/ and here is my class blog http://sg3in2010.blogspot.com/

The first is my own blog. It's still in its infancy, so any tips would be appreciated. The latter is co-created by myself and two other teachers. It's quite simple, but we have some good ideas for it's use in the future.
Here's my blog... more recently focussed on the Australian election:

I have my own blog dedicated to the meeting the needs of ELLs in grades K-12, but I will also be starting a class blog this year (for the first time) for my intermediate ELLs. This will be an opportunity to "trick" them into liking the writing process. Right now, I am waiting for approval from the district which I should have shortly. I will share our class blog when it is approved:) Wish me luck!
