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"

Michael,

I liked the concept of the vlog.  It is probably quicker than typing it all?  Can kids and parents watch on the smartphones?  So many of my parents read my blog on their phones, i am wondering if it would get lost. 

Thanks for checking out my vlog.  It is definitely faster once it is setup.  I can do a complete entry in less than 5 minutes.  You can see the vlog and watch the videos on a smartphone.  I have several kids that watch them on the bus on the way home everyday. 

Hey guys!  Just got my blog up and running this week.  It is in the Original Stages, but I am off to a good start.

 

 

I am focusing on sharing ways I am using Web 2.0 tools within my daily 6th Grade Computers & Technology curriculum (impementation) as well as sharing new cool toys and tools I really want to integrate in the future. I also love incorporating Audio Recordings and Music into my curriculum so you will find original songs my students have performed as well as podcasts. 

 

I am even going to share a Glogster I created that has an original Rap Song I wrote and performed called "Who's a Cyberbully?". 

 

 

I just got it up and running this week so I really need some followers, inputs, suggestions, comments, something to help me get the ball rolling.

Here is an image of my blog!

 

My blog is documenting the transformation of my classroom into a 21st century place for learning. My goal is to have an open demonstration classroom where teachers can see practice in action.

Here is a good blog about education technology, security, and privacy.  They focus mainly on issues regarding how edtech can be helpful, and also how it can be dangerous if not properly implemented.  You can check it out here.

Ok so I know I already shared my link but I didn't want to start a new thread for this.  If you teach upper Elementary or Middle school Reading/Writing you have to check this out.  New DVD PD resources from Nancy Atwell.  I will be begging for pennies on the street to pay for it.

 

Swoon, Double Swoon

My blog is dedicated to teachers of ELLs who need resources, new ideas, out-of-the-box strategies, excellent websites, etc. to support their ELLs (as well as others).  I will also be blogging for The Examiner (newspaper in San Francisco) on this same issue shortly.

Hi Lynn and like-minded educators,

 

I am the principal of a school in Baltimore County that is piloting the use of IPods in our fourth and fifth grade classrooms.   We have some cool things going on.  Check out my blog for details....

 

We are looking for folks to share our learning and to collaborate.

As a teacher and graduate student, I have been working on a blog to document the journey of using the iPod Touch in the kindergarten classroom.  My classmates and colleagues are authoring blogs that have proved to be helpful and inspiring to me over the past months and I am hoping that mine can provide the same about of help and inspiration to others.  Below is a list of the blogs that I am following for my class as well as my own blog. 

 

My blog: iKindergarten 

E.A. Kelly (teacher): EDET 650

B.H.E. (6th grade math): MY EDET 650 Blogspot

S. Howard (Technical Support): Forging Technology

Jennifer E (Technical Support): Staying on the Cutting Edge of Technology in SWVA

Jamie E. (Teacher): Village EduLand

 

Enjoy!  Katy

It doesn't cost anything to have a look :)

Hi Lyn,

Great idea to share blogs like this - especially for someone new to the concept like me.  It is always good to see what others are doing, find some "new" people to follow - and who knows, maybe even get a few more followers myself.

 

My blog is  http://nbnotewell.blogspot.com/  It is about all things educational  - more looking at "big picture" issues at the moment rather than specific skills in the classroom.  Hopefully it will strike a chord with a few people out there.  I'm looking forward to following some of the links presented here.  Again, a great idea for a discussion.

Cheers,

Neville
