The Edublog Awards is a community-based incentive started in 2004 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts and educational institutions were blocking access of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes.
The purpose of the Edublog awards is to promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social media.
The best aspects include that it creates a fabulous resource for educators to use for ideas on how social media is used in different contexts, with a range of different learners.
It introduces us all to new sites that we might not have found if not for the awards process.
The Edublog Awards consists of three stages:
- Nominations – open in late November
- Voting – starts in early December
- Winners Announced – mid-December
