I am an Instructional Technology Specialist in Lubbock, TX. I am currently working on my doctorate in instructional technology and love all things education! My blogging is sporadic depending on where my job is taking me at the time. You can find my blog at http://kristascott.edublogs.org/!

I am part of a group blog called InterACT. There are three regular authors and we're hoping to run guest blogs as well.

Target audience #1 - Stakeholders and policymakers for California public schools.
Target audience #2 - Anyone interested in the intersection between quality teaching and education policy.

The blog is a project of a CA teacher leadership network called Accomplished California Teachers (ACT).

ACT Links in addition to the blog:
Facebook
Twitter
Ning

And here's my personal Twitter account.
i post my random thoughts at you blog.

i am a hs math/leadership coach.
so...i love math.
but my passion is changing the way we spend our 7 hours a day.
I teach Physics and AP Physics, as well as an EMT class in Connecticut. I am also a Paramedic and EMS Instructor. In my previous life I was an Aerospace Engineer for 10 years, working for companies like Sikorsky Aircraft.

My blog is http://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/. My blog includes free technology resources for teachers, technology reviews, ways to use technology in your class, educational issues, use of smart phones, and project based learning ideas and resources.

Currently I teach secondary social studies in Vancouver, BC and blog at (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net). I have taught at international schools in Europe and Asia (k-12), and will soon begin studying for an MA in transdisciplinarity with the Centre for Cross-Faculty Inquiries in Education at the University of British Columbia. For my research interests in education, see (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?p=4295).

My blog is regularly updated and attempts to harness the essence of critical pedagogy by highlighting issues of class and identity. Content spans the humanities and veers towards the provocative. Regularly updated series include: "This Day in History" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?cat=291), "Thresholds" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?cat=309), "Fortean Diversions" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?cat=287), "Strategies for Revolutionaries" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?cat=242), "Dead Trees" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?cat=303), & "Truth and Lies in Christianity" (http://sophrosyne.radical.r30.net/wordpress/?tag=truth-and-lies-in-...).

I'm interested in meeting other educators, researchers and professionals engaged in radical, systemic reform.

I am an educational consultant, and still teach part-time. I started a blog very recently and post practical ideas that teachers can use to differentiate instruction and keep students engaged in the learning process. I would love to get other educators sharing variations and adaptations to the ideas I post! Check it out at www.ideasforeducators.com/idea_blog/
I blog at http://21teach.blogspot.com. My focus is on classroom experiences using technology tools-- what goes right? What crashes and burns? What needs to be tweaked for next time? My use of ed tech is definitely a work in progress, and that's reflected in my blog entries.
I teach Technology at the International School of Stuttgart. I use wikispaces at school where all of the work is 'paperless' and much of it online. I maintain a website, ( www.dtech21.com) that I have played with over the years. I am somewhere in between listening to the conversation and participating.
Do you have an action plan for 2010 that changes the results from previous years?

I help new teachers get into the heads and hearts of challenging students by teaching them to clearly identify what's holding back their true genius. Let's connect when your confidence has fallen and you can't get them inspired. Together we will win! See more of message over at Asphalt Check.
I blog at www.mrsripp.tumblr.com - the blog is mostly goings on in my classroom but I hope to add lesson plans and not just the results of them.
I'm a middle school special education teacher in NYC and my principal is trying to change me to a general education social studies teacher. I started teaching when I was age 50 and am now in my 6th year. My blog, Educationontheplate, is a look inside my classroom, my school and my mind. I also blog at Parentella and as part of the Coop Catalyst.
I am a k12 educator, teacher prep prof, Expertise theorist, and cognitive researcher in Philadelphia, PA. My writing is found at http://www.DrTimony.com. The primary focus of my blog is teacher Expertise, competency, quality, and behavior. One of my A side project is debunking the construct of "talent."

Top tips to increase your productivity through your study room

We’re stuck at home with limited access to many public spaces outdoors, including libraries, co-working spaces and educational institutions. These are just some examples of study areas you may utilise when you need a change in scenery to keep yourself engaged whilst you’re studying. Now, we’re being forced within the four walls of our home which means creating a workspace or room has never been more important. The learning environment that students work in can have a major impact on…See More
