Weekly Digest #19: Meet Other Edu-Bloggers

Weekly Digest #19: Meet Other Edu-Bloggers

Last week in our digest, we blogged about blogging. The digest contained resources that we have found useful, and tips for blogging about education. One tip was to meet other edu-bloggers, and we linked to our Facebook group intended to create a community of edu-bloggers. We have two main goals for the group: (1) to keep up with each others’ blogs, and (2) to exchange opportunities for guest blogs. Here is a static list of the bloggers who have added their blogs so far.
