As regular readers know, I periodically publish posts sharing what some organizations list as the “most popular” sites or services. I find them interesting and sometimes useful (see The Best Places To Find The Most Popular (& Useful) Resources For Educators ā€“2011).

Every six months or so, I also publish Postrank’s listing of their determination of the “most engaging” education blogs (it changes weekly). I take all these lists with a grain of salt, but it can’t hurt to see a list of who might have important roles in the online discussion about education. Obviously, the usefulness of Postrank’s criteria is very debatable. At the very least, it’s a source of potential new blogs to read.

You can see the entire PostRank list here. And here are the “top ten”:

1. Teacher Lingo

2. EduDemic

3. Free Technology For Teachers

4. New York Times Education

5. MindShift

6. Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of The Day

7. Joanne Jacobs

8. Angela Maiers Educational Services

9. Leading Blog: A Leadership Blog @ LeadershipNow

10. Big Education Ape
