Recently I was asked to research and select five educational blogs that were of interest to me, and met my needs as a teacher. Below are the blogs I selected, along with a brief description of each blog. I encourage you to check them out!
BookWidgets is an interactive learning blog that provides teachers with posts on innovative ways to support online learning for students. The blog portion of the website contains numerous articles regarding digital programs, interactive games, “how to” articles and information posts all geared toward educators.
Teach Create Motivate is a blog created by Ashley Marquez, a teacher in Texas. Her goal is to provide teachers with resources and information to support independent learning in the classroom with a focus on classroom management, reading, student engagement and building a classroom community. She offers blog posts, a podcast and links to free resources.
Owner and creator, Jacqueline, is a Reading and Writing Consultant in Texas. She uses her blog and social media to connect teachers with resources to increase student engagement in reading and writing. One type of resource she creates is seasonal and topic specific writing “pennants” that are enticing for the students to complete and make beautiful displays of completed student work. She has also written many blog posts on the writing process with links to student resources that align to the common core standards.
Mindshift is focused on how education is evolving with a focus on how children are being raised. Although more of a podcast than a blog, it offers insights and articles centered around meeting the needs of children and how caregivers can support and guide their children. Specifically, Mindshift “examines the role of technology, discoveries about the brain, racial and gender bias in education, social and emotional learning, inequities, mental health and many other issues that affect students”. These are areas that are increasingly important to me as I shift my own mindset in teaching and child development, and I couldn’t leave it off my list for this discussion post.
Through her blog posts, books, social media and website, Dr. Catlin Tucker promotes the use of technology through blended learning. Her blog focuses on practical learning strategies that work with virtual, blended or in-person teaching. Each blog post centers around a key topic, such as student engagement through blended learning. Her blogs offer background information on the topic supported with definitions and research, examples of how the concept works in the classroom, infographics and resources to support the learning model.
