Sign Up For These Edu Newsletters Right Away


There’s too much good edtech content floating around the web to catch everything. Cut out the search and get the good stuff sent straight to your inbox.

Below are five edu newsletters worth subscribing to. We compiled this list by taking an honest look at what we’ve subscribed to and look forward to on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Dig in.

Hechinger Report Blended Learning

I love reading the Hechinger Report. They have crazy quality coverage of major issues impacting blended learning and education in America. (You’ve probably noticed they’re in pretty much every weekly edtech roundup. Can’t help it! So good.)

You can get the Hechinger Report’s blended learning stories sent straight to your inbox here.

EdSurge Innovate and EdSurge Instruct

EdSurge Innovate sends you a hearty dose of edtech every Tuesday, while EdSurge Instruct is a specialized roundup for the modern educator. As you’d expect from EdSurge, they’re both very well done. You can sign up for one or both here.

Chalkup First Fridays

Fun fact: we have a newsletter, too. On the first Friday of every month we collect our top blog posts and edtech news from around the web and send it along to our edtechie friends. This month we gave readers a sneak peek at an essay series we’re putting together on student stress and time management. It’s fun. We’d love to include you.

You can sign up for our newsletter - and our blog updates - here.

If it’s edtech stories you desire, click here. The NPR Ed newsletter covers both breaking news and compelling human interest pieces. They also pepper in edtech news from around the web. It’s weekly. It’s easy to consume. I routinely find at least one thing I want to tweet about after taking it all in.

The Learning Network

The Learning Network is the New York Times’ weekly collection of lesson plans and student questions. There’s a splash of edtech, but it’s mostly super-shareable content that’s ideal for your next online course discussion. Here’s the official description: “The Learning Network uses Times content to create daily cross-curricular materials that teach skills, invite inquiry and engage students with current events.” It’s solid. You can subscribe here.
