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:

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"

Lynn,

Glad you are back. I have missed your blogging.
I have revamped my blog with great categories of the best free 3D educational games (growing every day)
at http://worldlearningtree.com/blog

I have recently been playing with the powerful UNITY 3D tool and people can see my progress as I prototype 3D tools for educational games on my main website http://worldlearningtree.com
The download is big and you have to first download the unity player (similer to flash)
After that, you'll see a beautiful island scene which will evolve into education islands.
I appreciate any feedback from you all.

Thanks,

I like Unity 3D. I'll check out your website!

Lifelong Learning 2.0

I blog to document what I’m learning and creating, so others can use it. Here you’ll find organizational tips, forms, thoughts on educational technology, links to helpful websites, creative ideas, and random thoughts.
Lifelong learning and innovative teaching are my passion! I love seeing how technology, creativity, and forward-thinking can combine to engage students and turn them into lifelong learners. I am interested in technology tools that facilitate collaboration, communication and creativity. The projects I post revolve around that. I have started writing an online learning module to help teachers, 7-12 students and homeschooling distance educators become familiar with web 2.0 tools. I’ve called it Project 2.0. The blog and wiki for it will be posted to my blog soon.

Thanks for your link to your classroom blog!

I have just started my blog on using web 2.o tools in the classroom. There are three posts so fa I'm not sure how to get an audience to participate. Anyway here is my link...

I just subscribed, Eric. I liked what I saw so far. I will look forward to future blogs. My blog has been used to update participants from my workshops that I do for teachers. It has many practical tips. If you'd like, take a look at www.judiwolf.blogspot.com
Blogs are tough to get up and running. I started mine about a month and a half ago and the visitors only trickle in and few participate. I've noticed that using twitter is a fabulous way to generate interest and communicate content. Here's what I've done. http://www.yoursmarticles.blogspot.com
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!
