PLPeeps blasted the Twittersphere with a who’s who of top edcuation blogs and online thought leaders in education on April 29. PLP’s second twitter chat discussed, “With everything that’s out there, who are your “go-tos” – the thinkers you want to learn from, the people who live in your world who make you laugh while showing you new ideas, the ones who always give you something you can use the next day.”
Tweets went flying and while this list isn’t comprehensive, we’re sharing some of the links that flashed across Tweetdeck, Hootsuite, and Twitterfall as we monitored the #plpnetwork chat! Here are some of your favorite resources, a list created by the participation and collaboration of the PLP community.

- Joyce Valenza – NeverEndingSearch
- Voices from the Learning Revolution
- Howard Rheingold – Net Smart

Many of the most-visited education blogs aren’t here. Folks like Karl Fisch, Vicki Davis, Stephen Downes, Larry Ferlazzo, etc. Also, others include KQED MindShift, Audrey Watters, Bill Ferriter, and many more (Steve Dembo, Darren Draper, Kevin Honeycutt…)…
Thanks for your additions, Scott. These blogs may not have come up in our #PLPnetwork chat Sunday, but as you point out are most visited and certainly of interest to the PLP community. We are happy to keep the conversation going and the list growing, here on the blog or via #plpnetwork on Twitter!
I would definitely add http://www.freetech4teachers.com/, along with Karl Fisch, Vicki Davis, and Larry Ferlazzo.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful list. It’s so important that teachers and educators are empowering one another. We could all learn something new from each other. Every mind thinks and functions differently; therefore, being able to be provided with a list of creative thought leaders makes it that much more encourage to try something new and innovating.
The changing trend of education has been marked through the technology with the help of different types of applications, gadgets and various online tools which made the studies much easier. Latest technology like Bluetooth, graphic calculators, MP3 pens help the students to explore themselves more in the studies.
