Education World: Top 25 Blogs for Education

Education World Names the Top 25 Blogs in Education

As a reader of Education World, I often visit their site for ideas and trends in education.  However, my most recent visit was for a different reason.  On my blog analytics, I noticed that a healthy stream of traffic was coming directly from their site.  After linking to the traffic source, I was surprised and honored to see that Kleinspiration was mentioned as one of the Top 25 Blogs for Education as  "15 More Blogs We Love."  I'm not sure of the process to get recognized, but I wanted to publicly thank the Education World Community for recognizing this blog as a resource for education.  Thank you so much for the honor!

After skimming through the top 25, I was also excited to see many of the blogs I already follow - including blogs in which I'm personally friends with the author... way to go Charity and Eric!!  Blogging and Social Media has connected me to so many great educators.  Through these networking platforms, I have gained a wealth of knowledge to support my practice.  As a new teacher, I am thankful to my network of friends and colleagues for supporting innovation and student-centered learning with a hands-on approach.  These ideas help shape my daily practice.  I continue to follow and enjoy the work you all share. 

Through blogging and sharing ideas, we all grow from each other's insights.  Though the world is vast, I feel connected through the 'personal' learning networks and great SM mentors.  Hugs!


  1. Not only is to cool to be at the short list for some top blogs, but it's nice to be on one with some actual educational credibility, rather than those spammy sites like "OnlineTeaching" or "Best Online Master's Degrees". Congrats on the nod!

  2. Ben, you ROCK!! Thanks so much!

    I agree... I love lists with 'weight.'



  3. I found you through that list and am so glad I did!

    I am your newest follower & I am really enjoying your blog :)

  5. Learning is an ongoing process. One needs to learn through out his whole life. And Sharing knowledge is the most important thing here. Sharing gives a lot of opportunities and it enhances knowledge as well. It gives ride to interactive learning process. Likewise interactive
    is key in interactive learning. Sharing is the key in learning.
