New education blogs to check out

Apologies for the long time between posts. The semester is in full swing and it’s a busy one — 14 hour teaching load, chairing Promotion and Tenure, 17 new advisees, and two proposals to finish before the first week of October (one curricular, one grant-related) — and I think I’m only now beginning to get back in rhythm.

Anyway, I just wanted to draw your attention to two noteworthy edublogs that have recently arrived on the scene:

  • Learning Curve is a new edublog by Karen Francisco under the aegis of the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette. Karen was the reporter who interviewed me for this piece on textbook prices and open-source textbooks.
  • Dropout Nation is not a new blog but is recently back from a long hiatus. RiShawn Biddle is the blogger there — a former Indianapolis Star columnist whose articles on education were, and are, particularly hard-hitting and insightful.

Enjoy them both.
