edBLOG 14: The Featured Blog of the Week is….Successful Teaching

The Lonely Road is Inspiration

There has been a lot of upset educators in our digital learning networks over the last couple weeks.  With that in mind, I came up with the theme of Inspirational Blogs for this week’s edBLOG project.  I called for suggestions and received so many that I’m going to run a couple week’s in a row of the same theme, except next week we will have an international feel.

For this week, the four blogs that peers from my personal learning network recommended the most were: Connected Principals started by George Couros which includes regular posts a group of administrators, Langwitches Blog by Silvia Tolisano which focuses on the magic of educating, Speaking of History by Eric Langhorst which is a classroom based blog used to share with kids and other educators, and Successful Teaching by Pat Hensley which looks at the art of teaching.

Congratulations to Successful Teaching for being chosen by your peers as the edBlog of the week

edBLOG 14 Poll: Inspirational Blogs

Last week I took a break from edBLOG.  It’s a fairly time consuming project, but one that I love to do and hope to keep going for the full year which is what I committed to when first announcing this. I decided it would be best to take a break just about every quarter, but now its time to get going again.

Over the last couple weeks, I have seen a very saddened tone in postings from my online learning community.  With that in mind, I decided to run a new type of theme for this project, and rather than looking at content areas or grade levels, I wanted to find out which education blogs inspire you.

I received enough suggestions that I will create two polls, one that features inspirational blogs from the U.S. (for the most part), and an international theme for next week.

This week’s poll includes a good variety of classroom, teaching, and admin focused blogs.  Thanks for the suggestions everybody.

As for now,

edBLOG 13: The Featured BLOG of the Week is…..About a Teacher

About a Teacher

This week I took a look at New Blogs.  This was a little hard to do because I received a lot of suggestions, then had to research back into their archives (if available) and find the first post. Several great blogs that were recommended started over a year ago, but four that were highly recommended all began within the last year; the most recent was About a Teacher which began just a few weeks ago.  In addition, InTec InSights, Blogging through the Fourth Dimension and Julie A Cunningham were in this week’s poll.  After a couple days of voting, About a Teacher , with 3 posts and over 100 comments was selected.

Congratulations to About A Teacher for being chosen by your peers as the edBlog of the week

edBLOG 13 Poll: New Blogs

Blogging is a great opportunity to express yourself and to help share ideas.  That being said, blogs are hard to maintain with all the other things educators have going on so it really helps us keep them going if we know there is an audience to hear our ideas.

For this week, I wanted to look at some new blogs and bloggers that have recently begun publishing online (within the last year).  Take a look at some of these blogs and see which one(s) you might like to read and support in the future.
