Sousa and Carol Ann Tomlinson I just read this in Sousa and Tomlinson’s book this evening and, for me, it reinforced why I use the Learning Skills Tracking Sheet (“Green Sheets“) in conjunction with the Traffic Light system. Just to summarize, Dr. Jamie Pyper took the idea of the Exit Card and essentially formalized it so that it is a part of everyday classroom practice.

Top 50 Education Technology Blogs Education technology has many supporters in its movement to alter traditional teaching methods. This list of the top 50 education technology blogs includes writers, technicians and social media experts…but they all are teachers.

The Top 20 Education Blogs Technorati ranks more than 100,000 blogs with “authority” calculations “based on a site’s linking behavior, categorization and other associated data over a short, finite period of time.” I don’t know what all that means, but it allows for comparison of blogs across and within all categories. The site doesn’t have an “education” category, so it requires going through the comprehensive listing to pick them out one at a time. The rankings are updated once a day, but here are the top 20 education blogs as of May 16, with their Technorati authority figures (1000 is the highest possible score):

The Top Education Blogs Jason Falls As promised, today I’m sharing the results of some recent research I conducted into the top education blogs on the web. As an experiment, both for a client and for a recent presentation on finding relevant bloggers, I decided to cast a wider net that actually needed and share the results with everyone. Before I dive into the methodology or the list, allow me to caveat this research with a couple of notes.

TeacherPop Thus begins a three-part series of guilty admissions, ahem, lessons learned, March 10, 2014, when I actually took a look at what I was doing and when. A while back, I decided to track my time in 30-minute increments over the course of a week, as recommended by Laura Vanderkam, author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think. I did it, painfully and mostly accurately. As most of you know, I’m a reasonably busy lady with a full-time job, heavy travel, two kids under the age of three, a lovely husband, and friends and family I like to hang out with. And I really want to finish Downton Abbey! The week I chose to track was an interesting one as it involved travel, workshops for teachers, train rides, pediatrician appointments, a book proposal deadline, and a hair appointment.
