http://danielfelice.com – I used to teach Daniel back in the late 90s. He was an amazing kid, super smart and very web savvy. I know I learned lots more from Daniel than he ever learned from me! He currently lives in Ireland with his partner, works in the technology business, and is always looking for new ways to monetise his blogging.

http://lindajoh.wordpress.com – This blog, which chronicles the adventures of a Canadian gone Down Under, is actually my girlfriend’s blog. Linda started this about a year ago as a way to keep her family and friends back in Canada updated on her new life in Australia. It’s developed into a very nice blog, getting regular traffic and building a good collection of interesting posts.

http://www.whiteboardblog.co.uk – I found this blog about interactive whiteboards while I was doing a whole lot of IWB research recently and think it is one of the best IWB resources I’ve found. Danny Nicholson has a really deep understanding of the technical and pedagogical issues surrounding the use of IWBs and I always manage to get some new insight into the technology when i read his blog.

http://moodleman.edublogs.org – There’s no doubt that Julian Ridden is onee of the most knowledgeable Moodle guys around, and his blog The MoodleMan Blog, is full of amazing gems for anyone who uses Moodle in their work. With homemade video tutorials, excellent tips and tricks and plenty of useful info, it’s a blog worth reading.

http://eideneurolearningblog.blogspot.com – For anyone interested in how the brain works, this blog has tons of really interesting information and insights into current brain research. Often containing useful tips for educators interested in how people learn, this blog is worth a read.

Till next year!
