HighBeam.com Spotlights History Is Elementary!


Many months ago I set up a Facebook page for this blog where folks could like the page and could have yet another way to keep up with updates.    

Last week I was surprised to see someone had placed something on my wall that really made me smile.  HighBeam.com had stopped by my Facebook home to advise the following:

To thank you for all your hard work and dedication we would like to acknowledge you by including History Is Elementary in our Top 10 Favorite Blogs for educational research.

Now, isn’t that nice?!?  Notice my little badge is over in the sidebar.

HighBeam's blog shared a link to this blog along with the other nine.  Here they are:

Homeroom: The Official Blog of the U.S. Department of Education

Honors College Admission Blog: The Honors College Admission Blog for Western Kentucky University with valuable commentary and tips

The College Solution: The Blog of Lynn O’Shaughnessy, a nationally recognized college expert, higher-ed journalist, consultant and teacher

The Quick and the Ed: Published by Education Sector, this blog offers in-depth analysis on the latest in education policy and research

Cool Cat Teacher Blog: Written by Vicki Davis, a full time teacher and blogger, who strives to share her insights on how to reach this generation of learners with teachers and parents

Generation YES Blog: Thoughts on empowering the current generation of learners with current technology

The Wired Campus: The Chronicle of Higher Education featuring the latest news on tech and education

In case HighBeam is new to you….it’s a paid search engine including the archives from newspapers such as The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, and Associated Press.   They also have numerous trade magazines such as Advertising Age and Auto Week and journals like The Journal of Education Research and The Journal of Social Psychology.   All total a subscription to HighBeam provides access to over 6,500 publications.

Many thanks HighBeam for the nod!

I would like to start posting something a little more regularly on the Facebook page to interact with you.  While I don’t want to clog up your newsfeed I would like to interact with you a bit more.     

You are important to me…..I appreciate each and every one of you so much!  

So far I’ve gotten in the habit of linking to new postings as I publish them….eventually I hope to get in the habit of updating the page with pictures, a thought, etc. each day.   Don’t give up on me!
