Top 100 Influential Education Blogs

Top 100 Influential Education Blogs
Over the last 5 years there was a sharp increase in the number of education blogs in various areas such as art education, technology, creative writing, mathematics, or drama, from primary school level to lifelong learning approaches.
Despite this surge in education blogs, there haven't been many attempts at classifying the blogs according to their authority. We will present a ranking of education blogs ordered by their Onalytica Influence Index.

Student Blogging Challenge
http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/
Student Blogging Challenge
When I first began the challenge back in 2008, there were only about 200 students taking part and I could visit each of them three times over the ten week period.
But in the last few challenges, there have been over 1300 students and there was no way I could visit them regularly. So in 2010 I started asking people in education to mentor a small group 20-30 students over the ten week period of September to November or March to May.
Challenge yourself to connect and learn through blogging

QuadBlogging Connects Student Writers
http://www.edutopia.org/blog/quad-blogging-technology-classroom-suzie-boss
QuadBlogging Connects Student Writers with Global Audiences
The idea is deceptively simple. Four teachers agree to have their students comment on each other's blogs in an organized fashion. Each week, one of the four gets a turn as the spotlight class. The other three classes visit and leave comments. Over the course of a month, every student's work gets read and commented upon. Along the way, students learn about respectful online communication.

6 Grade Class plus KidBlog
http://bit.ly/12tJg7n
William Chamberlain teaches sixth grade at Noel Elementary School in Noel, Missouri.
Below, you can watch the first of three video interviews during which Kidblog’s own Matt Hardy chats with William (thanks to the awesome power of Google+ Hangouts!).
They discuss William’s role in the blogging space, particularly as it relates to students and student comments. One of the coolest contributions William’s made to the social education space the #comments4kids hashtag he helped create and promote around the Twittersphere.

QuadBlogging – connecting schools
Imagine four schools that had a partnership/agreement that would mean that for a four week cycle, each school’s blog would be the focus for one week out of four. Each school in the Quad would spend some time visiting the blog of the school for that week, leave comments etc. After that week, another one of the four schools would be the focus and this would be repeated for the four week cycle and then repeated.

Sustained Blogging in the Classroom (Presentation)
http://k12onlineconference.org/?p=170
Sustained Blogging in the Classroom
Starting to use blogs in your classroom is one thing, actually embedding them into how you teach and sustaining them as a learning tool over time is something completely different. In the past 3 years, Jeff has helped numerous teachers set up blogs with their students. Some have continued to use blogs as a learning tool, others have given up not able to sustain blogging in their classroom.
In this presentation we’ll look at some ways that you can successfully embed blogs into your daily routine and look at examples from teachers around the world who have made blogging part of just what they do in the classroom.

Letter to parent
"This fall, I had one parent who was concerned about allowing her Freshman daughter to post online and participate in the blogging activity.
The signed permission slip came back with lots of questions and several email communications questioned the value of the project (I think she thought it was going to be more like a journal).

Rubrics for the assessment of Blogs
"We were talking the other day after looking at what makes a good blogger and the question came up about how to assess our blogs. So after much thought, discussion and some arguments we made three assessment rubrics. The students are now looking at other blogs as well as their own and will try to evaluate where they need some work."

Blogs Are Not the Enemy
http://www.techlearning.com/showArticle.php?articleID=196604374
There is a problem with blogs in the classroom—a problem that has many educators looking at blogging and not understanding why one would want to blog, how it benefits students, or how it engages them in the learning process.<
If we look at blogs as nothing more than electronic journals—replacing written journals—than I can understand why educators do not "get" how blogs work. Blogs as journals do not engage students any more in the learning process than a regular journal would.
The problem with blogs: We do not understand them.

The seven-year-old bloggers

The seven-year-old bloggers
Children as young as seven in one British school are using weblogs as part of their normal routine, and are doing better than non-webloggers as a result, their teacher says
Children at Hangleton Junior School in Hove, Sussex, have been using weblogs in their spare time to learn more about things that interest them, but as a result their performance in class has improved.
The school's weblogs project has been so successful that it was shortlisted for a New Statesman New Media Award, an annual event highlighting the best web development in the UK.
