Just posted my 2012 nominations for the Edublogs Awards:

  • Best group blog: Nerdy Book Club. They do important work. I contributed once. I have submitted several others, but have not heard back. Maybe this nomintion will make them view my submissions more favorably. read at: http://nerdybookclub.wordpress.com/
  • Best ed tech / resource sharing blog: FreeTech4Teachers-Richard Byrne’s blog. When does he sleep? read at: http://www.freetech4teachers.com/ 
  • Most influential blog post: Diane Ravitch's cooperative campaign with Anthony Cody's to have teachers write to Obama about education reform. I did. I read other letters. I hope he listens; there were years of accumulated wisdom in those letters: http://dianeravitch.net/2012/10/06/spread-the-word-about-october-17... 
  • Best individual tweeter : New Tweeter Scott Parkinson, my faculty member & biology teacher. Funny. @Mr_Parkinson 
  • Best twitter hashtag: #engchat. We have GREAT discussions 
  • Best free web tool: Edmodo. I drive it like a VW bug; it really is a Porsche.
  • Best educational wiki: Cool Tools for Schools-My other go to resource for open source software to use in the classroom. read at: Cool Tools for Schools: http://cooltoolsforschools.wikispaces.com/ 
  • Best educational use of a social network: English Companion Ning. 36,929 English teachers working to help each other, and not driving each other nuts. Enough said. read at: http://englishcompanion.ning.com/
