The Ten Individual Author Blogs That I Read First

Earlier this week someone taking my From Blog to Job on-demand course asked me if I still use Feedly to subscribe to blogs and which blogs I read first.

Yes, I still use Feedly to subscribe to blogs because I find it to be the easiest way to scroll through the latest entries from my favorite blogs. Feedly works equally well on my Windows laptop, on my Android phone, and on my iPad. If you've never tried Feedly, I have a video overview here.

Here are the individual author blogs that I read first in my Feedly account:
1. Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day
2. Engage Their Minds - Terri Eichholz
3. Cool Cat Teacher - Vicki Davis
4. The Whiteboard Blog - Danny Nicholson
5. History Tech - Glenn Wiebe
6. Maps Mania - Keir Clarke
7. CogDogBlog - Alan Levine
8. Hack Education - Audrey Watters
9. Stager-to-go - Gary Stager
10. Technology Tidbits - David Kapuler

Updated - What I Read First or RSS Recommendations

Last night I was a guest on Higher Ed Live (the archive is now up). During the show someone in the chat asked if I could write a blog post listing my favorite sources for discovering new things in educational technology and technology in general. I've written two of those lists in the past, but they change somewhat over time so here is my new list of the blogs and websites I go to first in my RSS reader.

The strictly tech blogs.
Read Write Web
TechCrunch
Make Use Of
Mashable Not so much anymore as it has become cluttered with lots of posts about things like "the best cat videos of the week."

Blogs written by educators
(in no particular order).

iLearn Technology - Kelly Tenkely
Larry Ferlazzo
Welcome to NCS-Tech - Kevin Jarrett
David Warlick
Dangerously Irrelevant - Dr. Scott McLeod

Do You Like Maps? Check Out The Map Room

For as long as I can remember I have loved to look at maps. It's probably one of the reasons I always did well in my social studies classes. If you're like me and you enjoy maps too, you should check out a blog titled The Map Room that I recently discovered. Even if you're not a map lover, but you teach social studies you should also browse The Map Room. The Map Room is a blog about all things maps. You'll find a variety of creative uses of maps in The Map Room. I should warn you though that the author of the site does occasionally use some language that is not appropriate for school so you probably don't want to send students to browse it. I'll use The Map Room for inspiration and ideas about using maps in ways that I haven't previously thought of.

Update: As Stephen Downes reminds us, another excellent place to find interesting maps is Strange Maps.
