I recently found this great list of 100 top education blogs compiled by Feedspot, a blog aggregate site. Blogging is such an important medium for educators; it’s a valuable way to share information, resources, strategies, and stories.
Here are the top 10 blogs taken from Feedspot’s list of 100:
The New York Times Learning Network is a free blog for teachers, students, and parents that provides teaching and learning materials and ideas based on New York Times content.
Technology is revolutionizing the world of education—replacing familiar classroom tools and changing the way we learn. MindShift explores the future of learning in all its dimensions, covering cultural and technology trends, groundbreaking research, education policy, and more. The site is curated by Tina Barseghian, a journalist and the mother of a grade-schooler.
Alan Singer is a social studies educator in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Hofstra University in Long Island, NY, and the editor of Social Science Docket (a joint publication of the New York and New Jersey Councils for Social Studies).
TeachThought’s mantra is simple: learn better. Their mission is inspiring—to create a modern enlightenment that results in healthy communities and truly interdependent citizens.
This weekly news and job-information source for college and university faculty members, administrators, and students provides an interesting peek into the world beyond K–12 education.
#6: INSIDE HIGHER ED
Another post-secondary themed blog, Inside Higher Ed provides free higher education news, jobs, career advice, and events for college and university faculty, adjuncts, graduate students, and administrators.
A resource of educational web tools and mobile apps for teachers and educators. This blog provides a comprehensive database of everything from time management strategies you can use on Google Drive to posters that guide students through the steps of critical analysis. A tremendous resource!
The goal of Edudemic is to connect teachers, administrators, students, and just about everyone else with the best technology on the planet. Not a modest goal, yet since their launch in 2010, Edudemic has grown to become one of the leading education technology sites on the web. With more than 500,000 unique monthly visitors, it’s become a vibrant forum of discussion, discovery, and knowledge.
An award-winning English and Social Studies teacher at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, CA, Larry Ferlazzo is the author of Helping Students Motivate Themselves: Practical Answers To Classroom Challenges, The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide, and Building Parent Engagement in Schools. He’s also one of the most popular teacher accounts on Twitter with 51,000 followers. In this EdWeek blog, he addresses readers’ questions on classroom management, ELL instruction, lesson planning, and other issues facing teachers.
#10: THE ANSWER SHEET
A school survival guide for parents (and everyone else), by Valerie Strauss, an education reporter for The Washington Post. Strauss provides insightful analysis of the critical education issues of our day.
Do you agree with this top 10? Personally, my two favorite blogs from the top 10 are Mind/Shift and Edudemic. It is definitely worth checking out the rest of the list at Feedspot. Let us know what you think of their list in the comments!
