My Edublog Nominations

The 2010 Edublog Awards nomination process has started. This will be my second year participating in the nomination process. I find it difficult in many categories to pick just one site or blog, but I try to think of the ones that have affected me the most this year. I don't even nominate for each category because I may not know enough about a category to make a responsible choice. 

Best Individual Blog: Jason T Bedell - Reflections on Teaching and Learning - Jason's blog has information and resources on Professional Development, student issues, pedagogy, and technology support. He has also hosted one Teachmeet last year and is hosting another this year. 

Best Individual Tweeter:  Steven Anderson @web20classroom Not only does Steven Tweet lots of great resources each day, he also coordinates other online projects and conferences. 

Best Resource Sharing Blog: Cybrary Man's Educational Web Sites - Cybraryman has a great site with over 20,000 links to educational resources. The site is organized by Educators, Parents, Students and sub categories. He even has lists of educational hashtags for Twitter. It is an excellent site. 

Most Influential Tweet/Series of Tweets / Tweet Based Discussion: #edchat - - #edchat is a great series of Tweets that educators use to connect with each other. On Tuesdays at 12noon EDT and 7pm EDT, teachers get together to discuss a specific topic, which they vote for on the site earlier in the week. Teachers also use the #edchat hash tag to search for great information, resources, and discussions on education outside of those two formal times. 

Best School Administrator Blog: - David Britten is a retired Army Colonel who is now a school superintendent. His blog offers tips, insight, and resources for educators. I truly enjoy reading his blog and have gotten some great ideas from him. 

Lifetime Achievement: Free Technology for Teachers by Richard Byrne - an excellent blog with a ton of resources posted every week. He also has some really well done guide books (all free) for teachers. 

Let us know your ideas for great blogs.
