Edutopia editors are putting together a Best of 2009 feature, and we are seeking your favorite education media: blogs, websites, podcasts, movies, TV shows, radio programs, magazines (aside from Edutopia, of course!), newspapers and anything else you could loosely describe as "media." Would love your thoughts!

I'm not sure if this qualifies, but my favorite thing on the web this year is edchat, the weekly twitter gathering of teachers discussing a topic of mutual interest. In fact, I'm heading there now.

I agree with Deven on #edchat, and would also credit http://teachpaperless.blogspot.com/, http://teacherleaders.typepad.com/the_tempered_radical/, http://www.eduratireview.com/, http://andrewbwatt.wordpress.com/, http://educationinnovation.typepad.com/, http://edte.ch/blog, and Twitter as the blogs & tool that have most impacted my teaching this year. Via Twitter, the entire PLN has dramatically improved how I learn - I nominate the PLN, too.

You can count on Teachers Teaching Teachers (http://teachersteachingteachers.org) for thoughtful conversations about interesting topics. And I never fail to get inspired and learn something new from TED (www.ted.com). Just last week, I arrived early for a movie in Portland, Ore., and the theater was playing a TED talk instead of the usual commercial stuff. Imagine the spike in the city's IQ if this would become common practice!

OK, its not fair that I can't mention Edutopia - c'mon, it's the best! But there are a few others that I like:

ASCD - I've been a member for several years. Love their magazine "Educational Leadership". I always find a nugget (or 2, or 3. or more!) and usually read it cover-to-cover. I also anxiously await the membership books. I also like the info on their website.

Edhelper.com - great resources at a really low price!

RubiStar (http://rubistar.4teachers.org/) - a free website where you can make your own rubrics. You can also track student performance.

Writing Prompts website http://www.scribd.com/doc/55697/501-Writing-Prompts
Literally 501 writing prompts! They are geared to middle school and above. Comes in so handy when you can't think of your own prompts!
