My Edublog Award nominations

Long time since I have posted on my personal blog, but now it is time to share my nominations for the 2011 Edublog awards. Having run the student blogging challenge, I have noticed some excellent blogs by both classes and students. So here are my recommendations:

  • Best individual blog is from Tracy Watanabe who writes about her roles in integrating IT into her school district.
  • Best group blog is called Our World, Our Stories
  • Best new blog is Daniela, a student from Columbia, who took part in the student blogging challenge. She always asked questions about how to improve her blog.
  • Best class blog has to be Mrs Yollis who is so influential with blogging month, using html code, quality commenting and always involving her students in the presentations
  • Best student blog is Teegan from New Zealand who this year has been a mentor for the younger students in the student blogging challenge in September 2011.
  • Best ed tech/resource sharing is Teach Gen Now a fortnightly post about a new tool to try in the classroom
  • Most influential blog post is about quality commenting by Mrs Linda Yollis and her students
  • Best twitter hashtag has to be #comments4kids as this allows  student blog posts to be shared on Twitter.
  • Best teacher blog is from Kathleen Morris who is always ready to share her knowledge and interests with others around the world
  • Best librarian blog is from Mrs Hembree and the Bulldog Readers
  • Best open PD is Anne Mirtschin and her Australia Series.

  2. Dear Sue,

    I am so honored by your nomination. I want to thank you for all you do for so many, and for helping me start my blog. You left me one of my first comments, relating the the first Teacher Challenge I was involved in… which pointed me in the right direction. Thank you for all you do to help so many with blogging. I am grateful for all you do.

    Kind regards,
