Earlier this week RashKath tagged me with a thinking blogger award:
Congratulations, you won a !
The participation rules:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
5 blogs that make me think:
(I read a lot of blogs, so picking only 5 that make me think was hard to do. )
1. Your Not so Normal Everyday Teacher: Not only does this blog make me think, it also makes me laugh. This blogger likes "to make sarcastic and witty remarks" as well as making "honest and intelligent exchanges about current policies, experiences and changes being made in the public education system." The combination makes for a fun and thought provoking read.
2. On an E Journey with Generation Y: This is the second time I've tagged Anne with a meme, but I can't help but include her blog on this list. She writes about her experiences integrating Web 2.0 technology into her classes. She is doing some incredible things.
3. Beyond Podcasting: Susan describes her blog as "An educator's journey to ubiquitous technology in the classroom. " And herself as "a techno-geek teacher." Her posts are both thoughtful and thought provoking.
4. Not so Distant Future: After meeting Carolyn Foote in Philadelphia, I know she is a great thinker both in person and Online. Carolyn is a high school librarian in Austin Texas. She uses her blog to discuss web 2.0 tools, teaching strategies, and library research tools for educators.
5. Burnt Toast and Inside Jokes: This new student blogger has made an amazing and inspiring start. Her writing is wise and funny. As she puts it: "Musings of a teenage girl are usually stuffed full of "like"'s and "love ya!"'s... but not me!" and she is true to her word.
So there you have it, 5 fabulous bloggers. I thank them for enriching my professional life. I would also like to thank RashKath, who's blog also deserves this recognition.
