If you’re looking for new education blogs to follow, you might want to check out The Push, going on at Scott McLeod’s Dangerously Irrelevant blog. The Push is an effort to create a solid list of subject-specific education blogs and post them to a wiki where everyone can access them. So far, there’s a pretty good list of math, science, and English/language arts blogs. (I see at least one of our edweek.org blogs on there!) Check it out here, and add some of your own suggestions if you have a blog worth sharing.
And on a somewhat unrelated note, the transcript of yesterday’s chat about one-to-one computing is up in case you missed the event. Guests Thomas Greaves, the chairman of the Greaves Group, and Leslie Wilson, the president of the One-to-One Institute, answered questions about the advantages and the challenges of implementing one-to-one laptop programs in K-12 schools.
Not surprisingly, many of the questions asked by the audience focused on financial issues—how to fund the programs, how the economy will affect one-to-one, and less-expensive alternatives to one laptop for every student. There’s lots of good information there, and if you have something to add to the discussion, hop on over to the one-to-one discussion forum and share your thoughts!
