I got a nice little e-mail yesterday from the folks over at RedOrbit.com. Apparently the Tech Savvy Educator has been chosen as one of their “Blogs of the Day.” In addition the site has also been given a “Science & Technology Award.” While I’m sincerely flattered, I must pass on the accolades to my readers, volunteers, and members. As I continue to watch the number of subscribers to the site grow, and other educators offer up their comments and thoughts, I’m encouraged to continue writing, sharing, and exploring how technology can be used in the classroom.
For those not familiar with RedOrbit, it’s a community driven news site for Science, Health, Technology, and Space. I’ve been poking around their site today and they have some good articles, including free streaming video news stories. They also have lots of online measurement tools and resources for Science Educators, including an Ask an Astronomer feature and daily Science Lessons for K-12.
I should have a permanent page for these in a couple of days, but here’s the lovely images they sent me for accepting their honors. Yay 🙂
