#Edblognz challenge – find two bloggers you admire at ULearn15, shake their hand and write about it.
When I think about people who influence me through their blogs the first person who comes to mind is Steve Mouldey. I have been reading Steve’s blog for more than 2 years now and it always entertains and challenges me. I got to meet Steve face to face for the first time last year at ULearn and his workshop on creativity further provoked my thinking.
This year I actually told Steve that one of the reasons I like reading his blog is that he unpacks books that he has read and that means I don’t have to read them!! The honest truth I know! It’s just that Steve has a really good way of communicating the key ideas. I also have been interested in Design Thinking and Steve posts a lot about this.

So blogger number 2 for this post is Philippa Nicoll Antipas. Philippa is someone I have a lot of time with. We run WellyEd together and interact both online and offline frequently. As a blogger, Philippa is really good at articulating her deep thinking. She is honest in her reflections and poses meaty questions to get your thinking. I actually remember the first post that I ever read of hers (way before I had met her). It was about what she was doing with her students and it got me really excited about things I could do in my classroom. Philippa is no longer classroom based but continues to provoke my thinking and entertain ideas relevant to my teaching practice.
