To recognize standouts among educator-bloggers, the team at EducationWorld.com has selected its 25 best for 2012.
As a source of online professional development, blogs issue a steady stream of ideas and solutions for modern educators. Of particular value in the education space are blogs by educators themselves. These provide advice on everything from tackling school improvement to integrating technology, and readers can trust that the writer has actually experienced the challenge firsthand. With school budgets stretched thin, blogs also offer an opportunity to share ideas without spending a dime.
Education World's Top 25 Best Blogs for Educators represent administrators, teachers and school support professionals who regularly offer their expertise in order to help virtual colleagues worldwide.
"The individuals on our list are making outstanding contributions to the field of education. Their blogs are creative, professional-looking and packed with practical, useful content," said Sarah W. Caron, Education World's social media editor. "We are pleased to honor a diverse group of educator-leaders who generously share their time and talents in the blogosphere."
Below are descriptions of some of the honorees. See the full list of blogs on the EducationWorld Community.
