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"

Hello Lynn,

Aha! I figured it out. I learn the hard way some times!

I'm a NYC-based curriculum consultant and professional developer. I'm launching three new public charter schools next year and will be using my blog to chronicle their progress. Specifically, I'm interested in using TED Talks as points of departure for inquiry-based learning and will be documenting that work. http://learningloam.blogspot.com.

I'm about to start my last quarter as a student teacher. Along with a few others in my teaching program, we started our own blog.
Here it is:

Thanks!
Hello Kelli,

Very good writing on your blog! I enjoyed reading it so much I linked it on my blogroll. When I find something good, I like to pass it along.

I think other teachers will benefit from it, too.

Best wishes to you and your students,

Lynn,

I wanted to give you an update.  I just got access to the Unit3D tool for windows.  I am beginning work on 3D educational games.  These will run instantly from a web browser but I won't be able to post them until the tool is out of beta.  See my blog for updates on this project.  I would be interested to see if anyone else out there knows of anything similar to what I am doing.
