This blog has been in existence for less than a year however I still am going to do my part by putting in some nominations for the Edublog awards. These awards celebrate all the great stuff educators are doing with social media. I think there’s great stuff happening in New Zealand and Australia so I’m going to indulge in some geographic nepotism in my nominations for 2011 Edublog awards.
Best individual blog – Integrating technology Kathleen’s energy and enthusiasm for blogging is infectious. She is hands down the nicest person on the internet. and knows her stuff.
Best individual tweeter – @mgraffin Setting up the #globalclassroom initiative makes you a star.
Best group blog – Inquire within fascinating, thought provoking a must-read. Although not technically a downunder blog as there are people blogging from around the world, @whatedsaid’s involvement means I can give it a plug.
Best class blog – Learning hub 3 has a cracker of a class blog and they even put up with me having a nose around their space.
Best student blog – Jarrod’s awesome blog Jarrod blogs like a pro and he’s only year 2! Go Jarrod.
Best teacher blog – e-learning 2011 is a must read. Krivett1 is always such a wonderful source of sound advice I consider her my virtual Associate Teacher.
Best School Administrator blog – I’m taking that to mean anyone with principals somewhere in their job title and hereby nominate Open learning spaces which deserves a wide audience.
Best educational use of video – Room 8 @ Melville have been a long-time favourite blog of mine for their use video. I’m sure the students I teacher next year will be learning so much from you.
