The Best “Tech” Blogs For Learning About New Web Applications

| 2 Comments

In previous “The Best…” lists, I’ve shared many of the places where I find the resources I share in this blog.

Today, I thought I’d share a short list of the “tech” blogs that I’ve found to be the best for sharing new web tools that are coming online. They obviously don’t look at them through the lens of an educator, but I find it pretty easy to figure out if and how these new tools can be applicable to schools.

You might want to consider subscribing to them yourself if you are not reading them already. They are sources of great information. Of course, they post a lot, and most of what they write about is not particularly useful for teachers.   It’s very easy, though, to quickly glance at the posts to identify the ones that are.

Here are my picks for The Best “Tech” Blogs For Learning About New Web Applications:

TechCrunch

Mashable

Read Write Web

Webware

Go To Web 2.0 Net

Killer Start-Ups

Make Use Of

Feel free to offer additional suggestions.

  1. I would also add Engadget, http://www.engadget.com/ and Lifehacker, http://lifehacker.com/
    They both cover lots of topics, and have great finds, tips and product reviews.

    If you are looking for information on any smartphone, go to SmartPhone experts. http://www.smartphoneexperts.com/communities
    They have separate sites for each smart phone operating system (Precentral, iPhone Blog, Crackberry, etc)

    And of course we have all of the great teacher blogs out there.

  2. I love makeuseof.com I have used there guides many times. Many of my discoveries come from stumbleupon. I type ESL or Language or any topic I am interested in and start stumbling. I have discovered some amazing sites that I never would have found otherwise. In fact, I found your site on Stumbleupon!
