We’ve put together a list of the top education blogs to help both students and teachers.
1. The EdubloggerStarting off with a meta entry - The Edublogger is a great repository of advice, thought-starters and beginner guides for educational blogging. It's filled with plenty of practical tips you can put into action immediately, or pass on to your students.
2. School Library Association of VictoriaSLAV runs an online book club that’s excellent for feeling part of a broader community and getting inspiration on titles to read in the classroom. This is a great blog for staying abreast of what people are reading, what's coming up in the publishing calendar and news from school libraries.
3. The SpokeEarly Childhood Australia's blog, The Spoke, offers insights and conversations around the issues affecting this sector. These range from avoiding burnout to finding balance while teaching to developments in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
4. EduResearch MattersA voice for Australian educational researchers, EduResearch Matters is always a thought-provoking read no matter what your specific role may be. You’ll find an engaging mix of personal stories, commentary on public events and advice from our top thinkers.
5. Teacher MagazineHere's some meaty material you can get stuck into. Teacher Magazine hosts in-depth articles backed with statistics, discussion and fresh ideas. They also have a podcast, if you'd prefer to hear these debates instead.
6. The PE GeekThere aren't as many PE-focused blogs as we might like, so it's great to come across something like The PE Geek, which takes a technological approach to physical education. This means entries on creating workout videos, monitoring movements to find improvements and useful tools you can use.
7. Tutors FieldThe Tutors Field blog is an interesting read no matter which side of the education industry you're sitting on. Here, you'll find explanations of potentially confusing elements within online learning, teaching resources and even lifestyle advice for students.
8. Sure Way EnglishHere is a great collection of resources for people learning how to speak, write and use English for academic purposes. Sure Way English is focused on the PTE test, but much of this advice is applicable to anyone striving to master our tongue.
9. E-Learning ProvocateurThe clue here is in the name. The E-Learning Provocateur aims to “provoke deeper thinking in the digital learning space and in L&D more broadly”. This means presenting ideas or approaches you may not have otherwise thought of.
10. The Thesis Whisperer
A comprehensive blog aimed at postgraduate students, The Thesis Whisperer covers all things related to PhDs and dissertations. Managed and edited by an Australian professor, it offers practical guidance across a vast range of topics, from writing to productivity to presentations and employability.
