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, Michelle.

It is amazing how many people have shared links to their blogs! I have learned so much from them- I can't keep up with them all as much as I'd like. I use my blogs as my on-line filing cabinets. Less clutter in my house and in my head!

I agree how amazing it is on how many people have shared! Blogging is becoming very popular.

Here are my blogs:

http://settingthestandard.ning.com (you have to join to see this one...but well worth it!)

Thank you for starting this blog!

Heidi,

Thanks for sharing the links!

I still haven't finished visiting all of the blogs people have shared. I must say that I get sidetracked by everyone's cool links, and then I don't have enough time to get back to this list!

New members of Classroom 2.0 who are also new to blogging might be overwhelmed by the wealth of information at first, but it is worth it. Even if you get sidetracked by a link or two...

This is my first blog. It started as a resource sharing site. It is quickly developing into an eclectic sharing resources/laughs site. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I have just started blogging and trying to get my head around it,
http://e-learninguk.blogspot.com is mine.
Matthew,

Keep up the blogging- you have some interesting posts.
Paul, just visited your quotefections blog. Nice!

I enjoy quotes- I posted a few on my blog a couple of years ago:

Visual and Multimedia Literacy Quotes, Part One

Visual and Multimedia Literacy Quotes- Odds and Ends, Part Two
I turned on the "moderate comments" feature because I don't have time to deal with blogspam, and as a female, I am hesitant to open things up.

Early on, I received a couple of weird comments on my blog.

Last year, one of my favorite tech bloggers, Kathy Sierra, received anonymous death threats on her blog.

By moderating the comments, I make sure I spend time reflecting about them. I publish nearly every comment.

When I started blogging, it was to meet a requirement of an educational technology course I was taking at the time. I didn't set out to do the Web 2.0 thing or blog after the class was over.

After I set up the blogs to track visitors, I realized I had an audience, but little time to follow an open forum for discussions.

Basically, my blogs are my on-line filing cabinets and sometime serve as mini "brain dumps".

Lynn
Tim,

Thanks to the link to your blog- lots of good multimedia about science.
