Ed-blogs

Schools and corporations are awakening to the value of blogging. If you're
new to this, here are some good places to start.


Top Learning Blogs

My interest is corporate and organizational. These are my favorite sources.

elearningpostMaish Nichani somehow finds three to five great links a day and sends them out via email or blog. Indispensable. OLDaily. Stephen Downes provides in-depth commentary on half a dozen topics daily. Astute. His take on ed-blogs. Internet Time blog. Jay Cross writes about learning, time, best practices, industry gossip, the absurdity of schools, and whatever else strikes his fancy. (Yeah, I know it's self-referential, but people copy lots of things from my site, and this is the only attribution I'm likely to get.) Check his blog page. Learning Circuits Blog is a group effort. Clark Quinn, George Siemens, Trace Urdan, Peter Isackson, Jane Knight, Sam Adkins, and others blog about learning, primarily in the corporate arena. elearnspace. from George Siemens, an instructor at Red River College in Manitoba, writes "Everything of consequence that I have learned about technology and education, I've learned for free." Now he's returning the karma. Great site and blog.


Ed-blogs

These are more focused on schools.

Educational Blogger Network The Educational Blogger Network is a community of teachers and educational professionals who use weblogs for teaching and learning. The network assists members to advance weblog integration in education. Just lifting off in Feburary '03. Weblogg-ed Will Richardson, a teacher at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ, says "It's my place to collect ideas for weblogs in the classroom, to ask questions to the teacher weblogging community, and to reflect on my teaching. It's also intended to be a clearninghouse for sites and issues relating to weblogs in education."Serious Instructional Technology is geeky and good. seblogging Weblogs, CMS, and dynamic Webpublishing for learning and education blogged by Sebastian Fiedler. Educational Tech Blog from Ray Schroeder, Univeristy of Illinois at Springfield. Also see his Online Education Resource Notebook and Online Learning Blog. Sébastien Paquet Pointers and thoughts on the evolution of knowledge sharing and scholarly communication. A place to write, nothing fancy Chris Ashley runs new program development for The Interactive University Project, a UC/K-12 technology and curriculum collaboration at U.C. Berkeley. SchoolBlogs Peter Ford writes, "SchoolBlogs are weblogs for education. Often dismissed as merely 'vanity' websites, critics slate their simplicity. Yet it is precisely these two factors that are the keys to their potential. Children are vain, just like adults. They desire and require an audience for their thoughts and achievements. Every teaching college in the world extols the virtues of providing students with an audience." MORE | homoLudens is from Patrick Delaney and edublogs is an entry at Sarah Lohnes' alterego

I started a cluster of blogs regarding educational blogs for educators.

http://educational.blogs.com

I am always looking for leads to teacher, pre-service teacher, classroom, school, and community oriented blogs.
