Over the last almost two years that I have been reading and writing blogs, I have come across a handful of lists of Top Education Blogs. Normally, I discover them when I either get a trackback or (more commonly) when a pagr refers someone over to my site. The latter was the case today.
As far as the rankings I’ve seen before, this one was the most intriguing. Instead of simply using Technorati data or any type or arbitrary kind of thing, Jason Falls (an outsider to the world of edublogs) pulled a list of 150 EduBlogs, and ranked them based on reader interaction over the past 30 days through Postrank.
All in all, it is definitely an intriguing methodology and the fact that he is not an educator means that he doesn’t have any bias towards a certain blog. And based on some of his comments, he really didn’t have much of an Edublog background bsedies the handful of hours he spent collecting and analyzing the data. Great stuff!
Check it out at The Top Education Blogs over at Social Media Explorer. Oh yeah, look for So You Want To Teach? ranked at number 37. Thank you for everyone who has been commenting lastely! You guys rock.
