I’m excited to announce that Shmoop has offered to help support the Featured #Edblog of the Week. They will tweet out my #edblog announcement every week and are even donating a tee-shirt and bookmarks for the featured blogger. EdBlog is a project that I organize in order to help promote education based blogs, and each blog is suggested and voted on by educators in our Personal Learning Network. I appreciate Shmoop’s willingness to support this idea, and the weekly blogs that are selected by our peers.
If you have never used Shmoop before, they provide “lively” study guides and teacher resources for educators to use in their courses. Their site has been very helpful for my online Social Studies courses, and several other teachers in my online programs also use their resources. My PLN refers to Shmoop often, and I know that my good friend over at Free Technology for Teachers, Richard Byrne uses Shmoop for his courses as well as blogs about them fairly often.
Thank you Shmoop, I appreciate your support.
