Educational Technology Blog Review

January 20, 2014

The blog Edutopia (http://www.edutopia.org/), sponsored by The George Lucas Educational Foundation (GLEF), “GLEF is dedicated to improving the K-12 learning process by documenting, disseminating, and advocating innovative, replicable, and evidence-based strategies that prepare students to thrive in their future education, careers, and adult lives.” The topics that are offered on Edutopia run the gamut from those directed to administrators, education trends, new teacher support, and parent partnerships. It provides a thoughtful platform for “researchers, teacher leaders and curriculum experts” in the field to share their expertise and for all to “join the conversation” and add their own insight.

As in any blog there are those select few who use the forum to espouse their own agendas. Although I must say I did find this to be exception, rather than the rule, as most of the participants have a genuine concern for the topic.

Edutopia is an excellent resource for anyone with an interest in education. Followers are able to find information on current issues and relevant topics in education today, as well as access lessons. To quote from the website: “Through Edutopia’s vibrant community of change-makers in education, GLEF spreads the word about ideal, interactive learning environments and enables others to adapt these successes locally.”
