As I’ve explained in earlier pieces, I periodically post “most popular” lists of websites that I think educators might find useful. Of course, there are a number of ways to gauge “popularity.” I just view these lists as opportunities to check-out some new sites, and find it interesting to see which ones might be particularly “popular.”
A year ago I posted about Scott McLeod’s analysis of the top 50 P-12 Education blogs, and thought newer readers might find it useful for me to share the list again as part of my “Most Popular” series.
I’ll share the top fifteen — at that time (I’m sure the ratings would look different today — perhaps Scott is preparing a new version?) — and you can go to Scott’s blog to see the rest. He used Technorati ratings and other factors to make the determination. His post is worth a visit, and his blog is worth reading regularly:
3. Joanne Jacobs
4. Stephen’s Web
5. Panda’s Thumb
6. 2¢ Worth
7. Cool Cat Teacher Blog
8. Moving at the Speed of Creativity
9. Ewan MacIntosh’s edu.blogs.com
10. Students 2.0
11. Dangerously Irrelevant
12. The Fischbowl
13. Larry Ferlazzo’s Website of the Day
14. Beyond School
Thanks for the kind words and the link, Larry. As much as I’m not looking forward to the time it will take, yes, it’s probably time for me to revisit this list again. Technorati’s been fairly unstable lately, so I’m a little hesitant to use it again. I’ve got some other ideas up my sleeve, though!
