Countdown to ISTE 02: Science education blogs (aka THE PUSH 2014)

The Push 2014If you were asked to nominate a very short list of blogs for science educators to read / subscribe to, what would you share? Please submit to the list! (there’s a form at the end of this post)

What are some excellent science education blogs that P-12 science educators should be reading? We need both elementary and secondary examples. Please contribute, see the responses, AND share this post with others so that we can get the best list possible.

What science education blogs would you recommend? http://bit.ly/1p3zOjS Please share with others so we get a great list! #sciedchat #edtech

Thanks in advance for helping with this initiative. If we all contribute, we should have a bevy of excellent subject-specific blogs to which we all can point. Please spread the word about THE PUSH!

[Next up: English / language arts education]

What is THE PUSH?

Every day between now and the ISTE conference, we work together to identify excellent subject-specific blogs that are useful to P-12 teachers. Why? Several reasons…

  • To identify blogs that P-12 teachers can use to initially seed (or expand) their RSS readers (e.g., Feedly, FlipboardReeder, Pulse)
  • To facilitate the creation of online, global (not just local) communities of practice by connecting role-alike peers
  • To create a single location where P-12 educators can go to see excellent subject-oriented educational blogging
  • To highlight excellent disciplinary blogging that deserves larger audiences
  • To learn from disciplines other than our own and get ideas about our own teaching and/or blogging

We are looking for blogs with RSS feeds – particularly from P-12 educators – not sites to which we can’t subscribe. This is an effort to update the awesome but now heavily-spammed list we made 5 years ago!

    concord.org has the most amazing offer of simulations and models for science classrooms ever.

    This example in html5 is awesome: http://mw.concord.org/nextgen/

  2. I was directed by Norah Colvin – who has great reflections, guidance, and well-researched insights on education on her blog norahcolvin.com.

    I also have recently been shown the science resources from the scientific journal Nature – this is a fantastic resource for science educators: http://www.nature.com/scitable
