It was about this time last year that I started blogging my experiences with using technology within my classes. It initially started out as more of a test exercise to learn how I could have my students blog, however after receiving my first comment it soon became very exciting and very rewarding to post. During these initial stages I learnt about RSS and began reading a variety of other blogs which I found to be simply superb.
Flash forward a year and its now time to nominate people for the 2009 edublog awards . My nominations are as follows;
Best individual blog – Betchablog – I find myself checking my RSS feed on a daily basis to read the new stuff that Chris posts. From tutorials through to his opinions, Chris does it with clarity, thoughtfulness and a passion to assist others in improving their use of technology in the classroom.
Best individual tweeter – thecleversheep- Initially I was unsure of how I could use Twitter effectively. However through reading it Rodd’s tweet I soon started to share my own experiences and my learning went through the roof. Now not a day goes by where Rodd isnt posting a mixture of educational goodies through his twitter stream.
Best resource sharing blog – The Clever Sheep – The first blog I ever really read and it is still my favourite blog when it comes to the sharing of interesting resources. A quick trip over to Rodd’s blog will result in me finding out lots of cool new tools or interesting ways in which to tackle a particular problem.
So there are my nominations, what are yours?
