Roundup of Links for Ed-Tech Enthusiasts

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!
