Sunday Night Reminder – EduBlog Award Nominations

Nov 23, 2008 by

Don’t forget, there’s only one week left to get in any nominations for the 2008 Edublog Awards. I’ve been blogging overtime this month to try and garner some support, but my carpet bagging really isn’t worth it, so get busy nominating somebody worthwhile! Don’t forget, you have to write up your nominations as a blog post, and then include a link to the 2008 Edublogs Nomination page. (this post is really just a test to see if I have my e-mail subscription working again, but it doesn’t hurt to remind everyone about the Eddies...

Yahoo, it’s Edublogs Awards Time!

Nov 11, 2008 by

Which means another year of not winning…but seriously, I usually don’t make a big hullabaloo over the Edublog Awards, mostly because I’m not in the habit of singling out one particular greatness in an ocean of fantastic thought.

Nov 27, 2007 by

A very good online friend (that I don’t nearly collaborate enough with, sorry Tom), has recently had his blog nominated for the 2007 Edublog Awards “Best Group Blog.” What’s a group blog who ask, and who is this friend? Tom Woodward is a creative educator from Virginia that uses humor and wonderful visual aides to convey concepts to students and other learners. You may remember him from his popular Copyright & Education presentation that used the simple stoplight analogy for what is safe to use in your classroom and what isn’t when it comes to copyright infringement. He also blogs over at BionicTeaching with the help of Jim Coe, an English Language Arts instructor. Together, they have been nominated for one of this year’s best group blogs, a blog written by two or more people, and rightly so. Both authors offer unique insight to the world of education from...
