Edublog has launched their 2009 awards nominations, and I'd like to nominate a couple great sites and bloggers for the work they've done. The “Ed Tech” blogosphere is a richer, more informative environment thanks to these sites and these individuals.
My Nominations for The 2009 Edublog Awards are:
- Lifetime achievement: Steve Hardagon. Steve has been so active in Ed Tech, with blogs, social networking, and more, including a lot of recent activity with web events. His efforts are raising Ed Tech awareness every day.
- Best individual blog: I would like to nominate Dr. Helen Barrett's “E-Portfolios for Learning” blog. Dr Barrett's work educates students, teachers, and administrators about the importance of supporting our academic and professional careers with a rich electronic portfolio of representational work, and she helps us understand how to go create online portfolios.
- Best educational use of a social networking service: Through his relatively new and growing Technology Integration in Education social network, Michael Leventhal spreads the word about upcoming Ed Tech events (and provides other resources), helping to inform and update all of us who wish to learn about education technology.
If you aren't already familiar with these folks and their sites, stop by and have a look. And be sure to vote at Edublogawards.com after nominations wrap up on Dec 8!
