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"

This is a FREE program, it can be used to learn how to read, write, and speak languages as well as communicate with others and NOT know their language.

My goals are to help people meet others worldwide, and remove some of the language barriers that have been in place, in the past.

Hopefully, both teachers and students will make attempts to make friends in far away places, learn about cultures and share their experiences, maybe even try to learn new languages, at their own pace as well. So that, this program, gets the use it was intended for. Instant Worldwide communications as well as self-paced language learning, at no cost.

Machine translation accuracy is from 72-82 percent, depending on the language, I use a method, I created called "Double Translation" so that you are re-fed, what your messages were, after being translated, in the language you choose.

This allows you for example, when you say "I have a bug in my program" that when it is translated, to Spanish, for example, it could be translated to "I have a insect in my program" your message, after using my "Double Translation methods" will show you, that you just said "I have a insect in my program", which will allow you to re-phrase your message to something like "I am having a problem with my program".

This kind of "Double Translation", feeding back the translated message, back to your language, has never been done before, and allows you to increase your translation accuracy, by learning, what phrases, translate better over time.

Please share this free program, with as many people as you know, I have no marketing resources, I am a retired systems programmer, trying to give back to the world, in the ways I know how, with the talents, God gave me.

Thanks

This is a whole primary blog linking the entire school community. Enjoy!
THIS IS WHY I haven't been paying much attention to this surprisingly (and yet, not so suprisingly) popular thread!
I just updated my blog: http://www.yoursmarticles.blogspot.com on tools to use for student research.
Great idea. I have a few blogs I contribute to regularly and know of several more that I can share. I suppose, the best way to start is to point to my blog here on Classroom 2.0.

I teach a paramedic program. Here is my blog :)
Hi, Lynn,
What a great resource this will be for us. If only there were more time.
I have a blog primarily aimed at the teachers at my middle school in which I share what I'm learning. Everyday there is something new that I learn about from online discussions, Nings, YouTube videos, my students, other teachers, etc. I just wish more of my colleagues would read and comment, but we are all so busy. I hope to be able to scan many of the blogs from teachers who've responded here. How wonderful to be connected with all these caring individuals. No longer can we use isolation as an excuse for not knowing what others are up to in their classrooms.

My blog is

I have created these blogs recently on 21st century strategies in ELL classroom and parental involvement ning which I thought you would be interested. If you would like to be a member you are most welcome. We would love to get input from different parts of the world.

Thanks for those links Mark! It is very important to bring parents and schools together.
Mark, thanks for those links. I fixed them, since I couldn't link to them from your post:
