My Nominations for the Edublogs Awards!
I have this blog; however I am an infrequent blogger; Google Reader says that I post a blog post less than once every 10 days.
However I read blogs much more frequently; I use the Google Reader to aggregate blog posts and then read them when I have time; usually every few days. I have learnt more in terms of professional development from blogs and twitter than any CPD course.
I ‘subscribe’ to about twenty-five different blogs on Google Reader. There are however some blogs that I find myself constantly reading and ‘starring’ the articles.
There are a number of categories in the edublog awards; I am not going to make nominations for all of them.
However my nominations are below:
Best individual blog – Living Geography by Alan Parkinson
Best ed tech / resource sharing blog – Tony Cassidy’s Share Geography
Tony’s blog and his associated website is full of great, creative ways for teaching Geography. I don’t know how he comes up with the ideas; but he does. What is great about all of Tony’s ideas is they are creative but realistic. As a practicing teacher Tony must spend alot of his time on these resources and they must be used by a lot of teachers.
Best free web Tool – Triptico Teacher’s Toolkit
Although you do have to download part of this programme I think it is a fantastic free tool for teachers. I have blogged about it previously and can’t wait until it is fully running on the school network!
Good Luck; there are many blogs out there that are worth reading and this is just the tip of the iceburg!
