While I follow dozens of education sources, two blogs are especially worth mentioning.
Ed week is written by Tom Vander Ark,
Tom Vander Ark (@tvanderark) is an education advocate, advisor, and author of Getting Smart: How Personal Digital Learning is Changing the World. Tom is Founder and Executive Editor of Getting Smart and a partner in Learn Capital.
His blog represents the apex of techno-optimism and promotion around the infinite potential of "customized individual learning, through technology development".
On the other side of the spectrum is H.E.W.N., written by Audrey Watters, who describes herself as:
"I am an education writer, an independent scholar, a serial dropout, a rabble-rouser, and ed-tech's Cassandra."
While Tom represents HOPE and POSSIBILITY, Audrey keeps that in check with CAUTION and SKEPTICISM (because, after all, people like Tom stand to gain a great deal through the development and sale of educational technologies).
If you subscribe to any education sources, these two should be at the top of your list. They both are prolific and cutting edge. For every innovation Tom reviews, Audrey provides a counterpoint.
Existing in-between these two is part of my job-- to compare and contrast these two perspectives. I think it is all of our responsibility, to keep our minds open to the possibilities for tomorrow, while maintaining firm roots in the present, and a vigilant awareness of the past.
I identify with them both greatly, and I will be re-posting and referencing their work on this site often.
