I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Scott Henson at Grits for Breakfast awarded me the “Thinking Blogger” title, tagging Lawsagna as one of the five blogs that made him think. Thank you, Scott! Now it’s my turn to participate in the “5 Blogs That Make Me Think” meme.
The participation rules are simple:
1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).
I write about learning, and there is no learning without thinking. My RSS reader has over 160 feeds that guarantee that I will never run out of things to think about. It’s a challenge to limit myself to just five blogs. Let’s just say that the five blogs below give me the most homework right now:
- Joyful Jubilant Learning is a community of bloggers with a passion for Lifelong Learning. The content is created by a group of contributors, who are all wonderful, inspirational and thinking writers. They ensure that my learning stays on track.
- Stephanie West Allen of Idealawg keeps my brain purposefully activated. I bet an fMRI picture of my brain as I read her posts would be pretty. I am fascinated by her discussion of neuroscience in terms that I can understand. I keep thinking about all the implications that new neuroscience discoveries can have for learning.
- Informal Learning Blog by Jay Cross keeps me pondering how we really learn. His book “Informal Learning” found its permanent corner spot on my desk.
- Susan Cartier Liebel of Build A Solo Practice, LLC offers her wisdom and inspiration for aspiring solos. Being a solo entrepreneur, I find her advice and her own example very thought-provoking. I like her passionate and direct style.
- I discovered The Bamboo Project by Michele Martin not long ago and it quickly became one of my favorite places to come and think about collaborative learning.
