My Edublog Award Nominees 2010

These are my nominations for the Edublog Awards.

Best individual tweeter:

@IntrepidTeacher: Jabiz Raisdana is honest, raw, and emotional. No one pushes my thinking more.

Best individual blog:

Farview Physical Education is an amazing blog written by Michael Beringer. Although this blog specifically deals with one part of education, it deserves recognition for being the best elementary physical education blog I have seen in four years. Michael has consistently found new and interesting ways to get his students motivated and moving.

Best class blog:

Okay so this is technically a school blog, not a class blog but there is no school blog category so I am putting it here. The Daraja Academy-Official Blog is my choice. While many great teachers have great class blogs that showcase learning, the Daraja Academy blog showcases how the school changes lives.

Best student blog:

Ian Coon's Live to Learn Ian uses his blog to reflect, share, and play. A great combination!

Most influential blog post:

An Easter Monday Proclamation of Liberation by Ira Socol on the SpEdChange blog. It is an amazing post that draws the line between politics and education. A must read in my opinion.

Most influential tweet / series of tweets / tweet based discussion:

#Edcamp What other tweets on education started a new vibrant and dynamic movement this year?

Best use of a PLN:

Edcamp again. These are conferences put on by PLN's for PLN's.
