Top 50 Edublogs? Blogging & Technology by Joel Wagner - June 11, 2008July 1, 20100 The conventional wisdom from professional bloggers is to come up with a regular posting frequency and to stick to it. If you post once a day normally, don’t do more than that. If you post Once a week, don’t do more than that. Also don’t do less. Well, it’s summer. I am home a bit more now and actually getting a chance to read some blogs finally again. Other teachers are home more now too. So I see some cool stuff that I want to share. I’m going to throw the conventional blogging wisdom out the window for now and post whenever I dang well feel like it! Who’s with me here? :) That being said, I will continue with the 07-08 review tomorrow and conclude that on Friday. I will also finally resume the Blog Revolution Project next Monday. I’m excited to see what has happened with some of the blogs that have been participating and see what those writers have come up with. If not, it’s not too late to get on board. Week 2 will focus on the Reader Experience: giving your blog a unique (and useful) look and feel. So why am I posting now? Well, I wanted to share with you some cool links! First of all, Mister Teacher has done it again. The 175th edition of the Carnival of Game Shows Education is at his blog.. He also points out that Scott McLeod has been doing his homework.

Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.
