I’m humbly amazed at the transition from being a blogger with 5 readers, to blogging for my colleagues, to having a worldwide readership. I often wonder at how this happened! I was thrilled this week by a tweet from @davidwees, whose blog I admire, saying that he finds himself wanting to read every post on my blog! Even more so when that was retweeted by several others. Thank you! Especially when I know there so many educational blogs worth reading.
I’d like to share some other blogs that made me think this week…
I like the honesty of Jeremy’s post and it resonates for me, as I’m a bit of an addict myself, I confess. It’s too easy to get sucked into Twitter and blogs and interacting with one’s PLN online… and completely lose track of time. Not having an iphone helps me ensure that I retain some balance!
I love Matt’s approach. His belief in his students helps them take responsibility for their learning and achieve all sorts of things that simply would not be possible in the class of his colleague, who calls her class ‘retarded’ (no comment). I blogged a while ago about this. If you haven’t seen the video ‘Believe in me‘, it’s worth a look.
Davis reflects on different roles in education reform. He sees his strength as interacting with the students in his classroom and this is the place he plans to innovate and contribute. This post made me think about the power of change from within, change that can be effected one step at a time by individual innovative educators.
Another blogger warned me when I started blogging not to make promises in case I dont keep them, so I won’t say this will become a series… but it might 😉
