Edublog has launched their 2009 awards nominations, and I'd like to nominate a couple great sites and bloggers forÂ 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. SteveÂ has beenÂ so active inÂ Ed Tech, withÂ blogs, social networking, and more, including a lot of recent activity withÂ web events. His efforts areÂ raising Ed Tech awareness every day.
- Best individual blog: I would like to nominate Dr. Helen Barrett's “E-Portfolios for Learning” blog.Â Dr Barrett's work educates students, teachers, and administrators aboutÂ the importance ofÂ supporting ourÂ academic and professional careersÂ with a rich electronic portfolio of representational work, and she helps us understand how to go create online portfolios.Â Â
- Best educational use of a social networking service: Through hisÂ relatively new andÂ growing Â Technology Integration in Education social network, Michael LeventhalÂ spreads the word about upcoming Ed Tech events (and providesÂ other resources), helping to inform and update all of usÂ who wish to learn aboutÂ education technology.Â
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.comÂ after nominations wrap up on Dec 8!
