I am very happy to announce (the first of what I hope will eventually be many 🙂 ) blogging award nominations – the EmergingEdTech blog has been nominated for the Top 100 Language Blogs 2009 competition, in the Language Technology category. Voting begins July 8 (details to follow). While EmergingEdTech is not focused specifically on Language Technology, our focus on the use of Internet technologies for education is certainly germane to this category. Anyway, it's pretty cool to be recognized by anyone. Hopefully this sort of thing helps in my quest to raise awareness of the potential for the (many free and low cost) tools that exist on the Internet that can be used to make the classroom experience more engaging and productive for our students and our teachers.
