Good EduBloggers Recommended By Twitter Community: Representing Diversity of Twitter Community, Not *Just* White Males
I was inspired to call out to Twitter tonight, by tweeting: “Recommendations needed4good eduBlogs representing cross-section of diversity of blog/twitter community, not *just* by white males please :-)”
I’d been motivated to do this because one male top edu-blogging tweep, who has a MASSIVE Twitter following, today blogged his own list of top ten edu-bloggers. And they were all white males. Now I am sure there was nothing intentional in this, and that it was just a personal list of favourites, and that there was total merit and quality applied in his own personal opinions and judgement criteria. What worried me a little though was that this is how ‘Old Boy Networks’ start. A successful white male extends credit to fellow white males, and perpetuates the success of other white males in society, to the unintended exclusion of non-white, non-males.
So, just with the idea of initiating a more inclusive and evolving list, this is a list of tweeps everyone who contributed tonight came up with. Some *are* white males by the way 🙂
I haven’t checked the blogs of all these people actually, and some of them may just be tweeters rather than have a blog, but please do feedback in comments and add your own recommendations etc. I am sure there are plenty more good edublogs out there by non-white, non-males.
