This is the eleventh year of the international Edublog Awards whose aim is to “promote and demonstrate the educational values” of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes.
Nominations are now being sought for this year’s awards. Having won the prestigious “Best Individual Blog” at the awards in 2012, it would be great if Seomra Ranga was in the running for that award again this year.
Nominations are open until November 24th under 19 different categories, after which time voting will commence. When thinking about nominations, I decided to choose blogs that I already follow. Unfortunately, you can’t nominate yourself so I’m hoping that others may consider Seomra Ranga for a nomination again this year! These are the eleven Seomra Ranga nominations:
Best individual blog – Free Technology 4 Teachers
Best group blog – Digital Art Week
Best class blog – St. Peter’s Primary Bray Blog
Best student blog – Autistic and Proud
Best ed tech / resource sharing blog – Anseo
Best teacher blog – Leaving Cert English
Most influential blog post of the year – 10 Reasons Not To Date A Girl Who Teaches
Best individual tweeter – Fred Boss
Best twitter hashtag or chat – #edchatie
Best educational use of media (audio / video / visual / podcast) – The Literacy Shed
Best mobile app – Read With Biff, Chip and Kipper
Please don’t forget to nominate Seomra Ranga in the “Best Individual Blog”, “Best Ed Tech / Resource Sharing Blog” or “Best Individual Tweeter” or any other suitable category. Instructions on how to nominate blogs for the awards are on the Edublog Awards website.
