Readers’ Survey 2007: Best Blog for Educators

Edutopia readers weigh in on their favorites.

May 8, 2007

Tech-savvy soothsayer David Warlick walks away with it. Warlick's lively blend of wit and wisdom nicely complements his focus on modern thinking and design in the classroom. Warlick's approach is fresh and forward looking, but he also spent more than thirty years working with public schools, so he leavens his visionary ideas with the grit of reality. Says Warlick, "My goal is to inspire and energize with ideas and possibilities that will challenge [people] to expand their perceptions of teaching and learning, and dare to consider our professional future with optimism and excitement." Amen to that. Other popular blogs included Eduwonk, Edublogs, and's blogs.

Our Take

Blog Wrangler

So many blogs, so little time. If you're interested in the latest blog blather about a specific topic, no matter who is writing about it, get thyself over to Google Alerts, which automatically emails you when new Google results for your search terms occur in its News, Web, Blogs, and Groups directories. The Google folks say many alerts are set up by people monitoring a developing news story, keeping current on a competitor or an industry, tracking medical advances, or getting the latest on a celebrity or a sports team -- or, may we suggest, staying abreast of educational developments.
