To Follow or Not to Follow

My Feedly feed.

As a new blogger and a future educator, finding blogs to follow that allow support or offer advice are very important. I have recently joined Feedly, and my way of finding new blogs to do just that, are, honestly, hash tagging educational words, or words that my major and minor would fall under. Once I find one that catches my eye, I click the blog name to see they types of things they actually blog about, to see if it will benefit me and my seek for knowledge and understanding. Here are two blogs that I have found thus far, that I find are very helpful to me and may be helpful to other educators.

BLOG #1 – Cool Cat Teacher Blog

I have gone through this blog several times over the last couple of days after I started following it. It gives great advice for teachers anywhere from inclusion in the classroom to ideas that will help you grow as a teacher, and if you check out my twitter, I have shared the latest article on “5 Ideas to Help You Grow”. There are sometimes pod casts that allow you to listen to what the article will speak about, and she brings in other educators onto her pod cast and discuss things that are happening in classrooms now. As an educator, its nice to hear what other teachers are doing in their classroom, and gain advice to better yourself as an educator. I have, so far, thoroughly enjoyed reading this blog.

If you are wondering how I found it, I went onto my Feedly, went to discover, and typed EdTech, and there it was. I click on the name and skimmed through some of her blogs, and read several of them and decided this was a great blog to follow in my opinion. Below is a screenshot of some of the things this blog posts. Go check them out!

BLOG #2 – Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

If you want to gather great material and idea of different types of assessment, this is the place to go. It is a wonderful blog that contains Teacher Guides and Assessment Tools that can help you as an educator in the classroom. They have phenomenal ideas, although you may not agree with some, they always have alternatives that are sure to fit with you one way or another, whether it be, you take their idea, or you go off their ideas and alter them to work for you. They talk out amazing resources in their blog as well, and ways we can incorporate them into our classrooms.

If you are a teacher that is always looking for Assessment Tools and Teacher Guides, this is a great blog for you to check out. Below is a screenshot of some blogs they post, and the very top is the blog name. Go check them out!

If anyone has a good blog they follow with helpful information or advice, please share. You can comment it below or contact me through my blog. Thank you!

  1. I have come across the Cool Cat Teacher Blog a few times myself but was reluctant to check it out because the name wasn’t very professional but it seems that you very much like the blog so I think I will check it out myself!


  2. When I was checking out Feedly I decided to follow Cool Cat Teacher Blog as well! I haven’t gotten the chance to read a lot of the blogs from it yet, but I really enjoyed the one I did happen to read. I look forward to reading more from this blogger!


  3. The name of the blog doesn’t sound that professional, however they do have a lot of great things to say, and post recordings of conversations they have with teachers in the classroom.
