Nominations Open – The 2012 Edublog Awards are here!

It is that time of year again!

The 2012 Edublog Awards are a go!

The Edublog Awards is a community based initiative 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 promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social media.

  1. Hi Ronnie,

    Just out of interest – can you share some Edublogs data with us all? I wondered if you had stats from 2004-11 on the number of nominations each year, the number of votes, etc. I’m assuming things must be be on the rise 😉

    Maybe you already have this posted somewhere?
