Nominations Due Monday (Nov 26) for the Annual Edublog Awards!

It is that time of year again! The 2012 Edublog Awards are a go, and I'm pleased for Classroom 2.0 and my Web 2.0 Labs to be co-sponsors again of this very fun annual event. I'll also be co-hosting the awards event live in December. I've been preoccupied with the Global Education Conference, so I'm tardy in helping to promote the event--so notice the due date for nominations coming up this Monday!

The Edublog Awards is a community-based initiative started in 2004 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts and educational institutions were blocking access of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes.  The purpose of the Edublog awards is promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social media.

  • Nominations – NOW through November 26th
