If you haven’t started this practice yet, or if you’re looking to expand your PLN, here’s a great place to start. In June 2012, EdTech Magazine published a list of “50 Must-Read K-12 I.T. Blogs.”
While many on the list are tech-focused, you’ll find that most are traditionally-trained teachers who happen to use tech to communicate good classroom practices to the world outside their classrooms. Given a chance, I think most teachers will find something on the list that will appeal to them personally or professionally, regardless of your tech-comfort level.
Among these are several that I peruse during that rumored-and-always-elusive “free time.”
- The 21st Century Principal
- Cool Cat Teacher Blog
- Blue Skunk Blog
- Free Technology for Teachers
