Whew – we’ve processed over 400 nominations since launching with more rolling in each hour!
In case you are just tuning in – more on the nomination process and where to submit yours can be found here.
It’s fun to keep up with them as they come in, and once voting starts, we will publish them all here for you to enjoy.
For now, you can keep up with many of them with:
Google Blog Search – Updated with the latest blog posts that contain “Edublog Awards” somewhere in the content. An excellent way to find new blogs to follow!
Just a few thoughts – each year we come across a few posts from some that aren’t big fans of this process (see here for a recent example). We’ve also enjoyed reading posts such as Not My Edublog Awards Nominees – which puts an interesting perspective on wanting to give props to fellow PLN members, but perhaps not nominate for the awards. Please know that we welcome all feedback and are always working on ways to make this as valuable and useful process as possible to everyone. Just to throw this out there – our personal favorite part of the Edublog Awards isn’t that we crown a winner in each category, but that we:
- Celebrate and recognize those that contribute to our personal learning
- Create a handy list of incredible resources for the community to refer to
- Build awareness of all of the excellent ways technology is being used in education
We can’t tell you how many times people ask us for good librarian blogs to follow, for example, and we point them to the list of the previous year’s nominees.
Keep the nominations coming – remember to get them in by Friday, December 2nd!
