As my blog is, to this point, a rather small endeavor, I also only have a few individuals I would like to nominate for the Edublog Awards this year.
My first nomination is for Best Teacher Blog. For this award, I am nominating a blogger I read for many reasons - insight, information, and inspiration. He is an excellent writer, and his posts are always thoughtful. This year, for the Best Teacher Blog, I would like to nominate Michael Doyle’s blog – The Science Teacher.
My next nomination is for the Best Educational Use of a Social Networking Service. For this award, I would like to nominate the Principles of Biology classroom website. I consistently find inspiration here – whether it be from actual student work, or as a model of a networking site to use within my own classroom. When examining actual class websites -this one has been highly successful in terms of student involvement as well as showcasing high quality student work.
Thank you for the opportunity to nominate a few of my favorites.
