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"

Hi David, I, too, use Youtube videos in class, although the site is blocked - I ask permission from the author, then download them and copy to CDROM together with the permission email. Then I can play them in class as I need to.
Hi Lynn,
Great idea.... my blog is http://web20-guru.blogspot.com and my wiki is http://web20guru.us Both sites are for Web 2.0 integration tools and strategies for teachers. I continue to build and work on my content to help any teacher in search of resources and integration ideas. Hope you find it useful.

My website: http://brandtschneider.edublogs.org I write in this rarely now.
meL's Word (http://mrollosson.edublogs.org/) - usually my random thoughts on my efforts to encourage teachers to integrate technology into their curriculum. I want to start adding posts about some of the "discoveries" I make and how I think they can be used in the classroom.
