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"

Tania,

So you are a librarian? We have some forward looking people working in the regional library system in my area. Have you heard of Matt Gullet?

Matt works at the Public Library of Charlotte-Mecklenburg County. He is the director of "emerging technologies". He works with ImaginOn, the library for children and teens, and they have established a space in Second Life - a teen library. They have a "gaming at the library" program, and lots more.

This is a link to one of his blogs - there are lots of links that might interest you:

Richard,

Thanks for your links!

Your teacher resources page is great.

What is "Ning"? Hearing from you would trump searching blindly for a definition/explanation of "Ning". And instead of a wild goose chase for the application of Ning, I hope you can point me in the best direction for an example. Thank you.
About Ning

It is the name of the company behind this social networking platform.

Hi there

I have had a go at doing KS3 unit 9.2 using as many online resources as possible in order to introduce students to some Web 2.0 tools and to promote collaboration as much as possible. It is done at the end of the year following another HUGE detailed Integrated Applications project, so students should be able to apply their knowldege and skills and use them in slightly different ways.

The resource I would like to contribute is all online at the blog below:

I developed my first classroom blogs with kids this winter/spring - we originally created separate blogs for each class, but I quickly realized that that was not going to work! Now I have one master blog that I'm going to use for ALL my classes, so that all the information is in one place:

Lisa,

Your blog seems really great to me.
I teach 7th and 8th grade science in our middle school, and have been using blogs for the past 2 years (along with wikis, and podcasts, and lots of other Web 2.0 tools).

Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Hello :-)

I am new to the site and thrilled at all this site has to offer! I have used blogs with my students, but I have never actually had my own blog until recently. I will be using it to provide technology information to the staff of my school in, what I hope is, a teacher friendly format. If you have any feedback, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Your blog for helping the teachers in your district is phenomenal! No hyperbole. It's great. Definitely teacher-friendly. Sortable. Negotiable. Great links, colors, fonts, TeacherTube videos. Undoubtedly, it will be a success with the teaching staff in the fall (and I'm sure your adminstration will love it). I'm going to adopt your idea and give it to our administration, if you don't mind.

Can you help me with the email alerts portion? The part where your teachers insert their email addresses, then get information/updates through FeedBurner or something? I also need help with labels. I'm good at a lot of the blogspot features, but am still learning (as always).

What do/did you teach? I teach senior English (http://scholarlynx.blogspot.com). Best job in the world.

A kind offer of editing advice: get rid of the apostrophe in your blog post's title (Teacher's Blogging?)-- no apostrophe needed. (I teach English; can't help it.)

Best,
Matt
that nice how can blog help me and my student at our school. thanks
