From the blog the Top 100 technology blogs for teachers, I have selected to discuss 16. Teachers Love SMART Boards and 38. DIY U.
Teachers Love SMART Boards is the winner of the “Best Ed Tech Support Blog” award for the 2008 Edublog Awards.  Podcasts on how to use SMART Boards in the classroom are available to view on this blog.  The blog seems very visually and user friendly, and readers can search blog posts by category or month.  Also, for those readers who don't have time to be continually checking back to the blog for new posts, they can subscribe by email, subscribe to an RSS feed, or follow on FaceBook and Twitter.
The blogger of DIY U has achieved noteriety by appering in various documentaries about higher education.  Links to interesting videos and interviews about education are available on the blog.  She has an edgy style of writing and publishing which may appeal to younger educators, and possibly even students graduating high school or entering post-secondary.  She discusses higher level topics such as the current state of education, its future, standardized testing, the use of technology in education, and much more!  The blog also provides contact information should educators be interested in having her as a guest speaker at their institution.

Influential moment

27/2/2013

 
The most memorable moment of my life, at least in recent memory, is when I travelled to Sarajevo. 
I arrived on a bus in the wee hours of the morning which dropped me off at the outskirts of the city.  As there was no pubilc transportation running at that hour, I walked for quite a few hours to get into town.  It was unreal to see the progressive change in the urban landscape: I saw buildings that were pock-marked from mortar shells change to beautiful mosques to an urban centre. 
I was also a vegetarian at the time and didn't know that pretty much anywhere you go in Sarajevo, meat is on the menu.  After settling my things at the hostel, I walked the city for another three hours, searching for something to eat before breaking down in tears on a street corner because I was hungry.  I returned to the hostel in despair, where a fellow guest told me about "sropska".  It's basically a greek salad without the olives.  That's pretty much what I ate the entire duration of my stay there.
Sarajevo is situated in a valley surrounded by hilly mountains.  A river runs through the city.  Considering the landscape, it's amazing the people survived the Seige considered they'd be surrounded by snipers who were perched in the mountains and surrounded the city.  I did visit the museum that permanently e
Upon my return to Canada after my holiday abroad, I picked up Stephen Galloway's book "The Cellist of Sarajevo" and thought it was so cool to read such an accurate depiction of a city and country I had recently visited. 
 
I am in the process of creating my web site and it is going well so far.  I am very surprised at how easy it is to create this particularly with free software.  I'm excited to see what I can do next!
