Transformation of Education Blogs
Our ability to connect via the internet and social media has revolutionized the transparency of education and the quality of professional development that is available. Our hope is to maintain a solid list of blogs which will help share the wonderful things going on in education, provoke thought, provide professional development, share stories, philosophies, and wisdom, as well as help to transform and revolutionize the education system. Our goal is to feature a new blog each week and add it to this inspirational and educational list of blogs.
