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"

I just started making my own personal transition to Web 2.0 this summer. I finished my Masters and my wife finally finished college so, I updated my skills. I started a website at: http://sites.google.com/site/editinghelpsite/ and a blog which is half technology based at: http://editinghelpsite.blogspot.com/. I teach LA/SS in middle school.
Welcome to the world of Web 2.0! I'm happy to hear about your accomplishment.
I've just started blogging and don't have a lot of posts yet. I'm working on more. Please check it out and give me some comments. I'm really new to this. I'm a first grade teacher and my blog is about my reflections on teaching and technology in the classroom.
Reflections of a Classroom Teacher
Hi.

Classroom 2.0 is not blocked from my school district this year. I am so excited to see that many more educators and related professionals are blogging! I use my blogs as on-line filing cabinets.
I am a middle school LA teacher as well as a mother of two. My blog is Teacher in Transition. I blog about my quest to be the teacher that I want my kids to have.

I am also on Twitter. hrmason
My class web site, with resources for teachers: http://www.physicsmedic.org and my blog with resources and tips: http://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/.

Dave (I teach high school science so most of the things I post are for high school level, but much can be used in the lower grades).
Here is my blog No Teacher Left Standing
Nice Blog! n twitter pg!
My Edublog is at http://cohortnumber8.blogspot.com/

So far it's mostly about my journey through the Master's in Teaching program at Brandeis University, but I'm also including insights as they come to me such as ideas about technology integration, a Teaching Skills Database I'm putting together, and a pyramid-shaped model of teaching and learning that I'm developing. In the fall I look forward to including additional insights from my student-teaching internship.

I always appreciate comments from experienced educators who can help guide me in the right direction.

Hi Lynn,

My blog is blog.learningtoday.com is directed to share resources for teachers. Right now I have posted stories teachers can download for students in Reading grades K to 5th grade.
I try updating it at least once a week with content that is relevant to teachers in K to 5th grade... I'd love to hear feedback as to what topics to talk about... Enjoy!

Thank you!
Hello -

I recently started a blog called The Virtual High School Teacher that is designed to help virtual high school teachers and tech teachers with technology and other resources.

Please check it out and pass it on: http://virtualhighschoolteacher.wordpress.com/
