  1. Librarians can use the blogs of classroom teachers to figure out what supplementary resources they can be providing to support research paper learning.
  2. A teacher can create a class blog and provide an opportunity for students to post. This can be done publicly (using Blogger) or privately (using Moodle or Class Blogmeister).
  3. Use an aggregator (like Bloglines) to read and keep up with what other teachers and educators are doing in their classrooms and online.
  4. Phil mentioned Technorati as a search engine for blogs. Try it out.
