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 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 11: The Featured Blog of the Week….The Inspired Classroom

masksThis week I took a look at the Arts in Education for my EdBLOG theme. It was a friend’s idea, and I really appreciate the support. It’s nice getting suggestions for different themes to do in edBLOG since my goal is to complete this project for 52 weeks, and I know there are not 52 themes that I will think of on my own. In fact, I was already planning on repeating several of them throughout the year.

Anyhow, thanks to Shannon Miller over at Van Meter Library Voice for coming up with this week’s theme.  If you have any ideas, please leave them in my comments, and I will be happy to give you a shout out.

This week’s poll included three music and art teachers who write wonderful blogs and were highly recommended by multiple people: The Inspired ClassroomSing Imagination and LearningIT.

Congratulations to The Inspired Classroom for being chosen by your peers as the edBlog of the week.

edBlog 10: The Featured Blog of the Week is…Education on the Plate

This week with edBlog, I looked at Special Education teacher blogs. It was the closest vote ever with a virtual three way tie going into the last couple hours and a total of three votes separating the three blogs.

This week’s poll was very diverse.  We had SpeEdChange by Ira Socol, Education on the Plate by Deven Black, and Teachers at Risk by Elona Hartjes.  Please check all of them out. They are all very different in nature, but all are special education based.

Congratulations to Education on the Plate for being chosen by your peers as the edBlog of the week.
