I had a recent article request from the The Education Foundation, the UK’s Education Think Tank, for an article on ‘The Rise of Teacher Blogger’.
What other teacher blogs do I follow?
One key question for me to consider was; ‘What other teacher blogs do I follow? If yes, which ones and why?’
I have never written my favourite educational blogs down into a blogpost before, simply because I am quite happy to read content via my professional learning network on Twitter. This allows my audience to self-curate ‘good’ content for me to read.
It is impossible to read everything and be in front of a digital device all of the time, but there are blogs that I will regularly return to for content and advice. So, if I had to put them down on paper, I have listed my top educational blogs below, which are in no particular order:
My favourite educational blogs:
