EdTech Blogs We Love: TeachPaperless, Clint Lalonde, TipLine

Posted in Teacher Tools on April 18, 2011 by

In this week’s EdTech Blogs We Love, check out three great blogs helping to advance the educational technology field.


TeachPaperless started as a blog detailing teacher Shelly Blake-Plock’s quest to teach in a paperless classroom. Now, TeachPaperless has grown into a collaboratively written blog (there are 10 contributing writers in addition to Blake-Plock); one of the blog’s greatest strengths lies in its diversity of perspectives. TeachPaperless also goes beyond merely documenting trends in educational technology to speak to broader issues of pedagogy and student engagement.
