What are the most influential blogs on education in the UK?

There are 1,000s of education bloggers in the UK; you can preview a great one-stop-shop list here. For the 5th year in a row, has been awarded the number 1 education spot in the UK by Vuelio.

However, regardless of who is nominated, it’s a shame Vuelio do NOT believe education is worthy of a place at the awards ceremony in November 2017. For the second year in a row, they will not be celebrating the education sector as a blogging community.

I’ve been in and out of love with Vuelio blog rankings over the past 5 years – they use the same updated webpage. Vuelio say they use a proprietary algorithm to rank all the media in their database. Their methodology takes into consideration a number of factors including social sharing, topic-related content, post frequency, social media influence, traffic, design and interactivity. (Source)

In 2010, Ross Morrison McGill founded @TeacherToolkit from a simple Twitter account in which he rapidly became the 'most followed teacher on social media in the UK'. In 2015, he was nominated for '500 Most Influential People in Britain' in The Sunday Times as one of the most influential in the field of education - he remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day ... Sharing online as @TeacherToolkit, he rebuilt this website (c2008) into what you are now reading, as one of the 'most influential blogs on education in the UK', winning the number one spot at the UK Blog Awards (2018). Today, he is currently a PGCE tutor and is researching 'social media and its influence on education policy' for his EdD at Cambridge University. In 1993, he started teaching and is an experienced school leader working in some of the toughest schools in London.
