If you are a blogger you’ll know about the annual Edublogs Awards. The Edublog Awards started in 2004. They promote and demonstrate the educational value of social media such as the use of blogs and Twitter for educational purposes. These awards take place in November/December yearly in three stages.
- First there is the Nominations stage.
- This is followed by the Voting stage.
- Finally the winners are announced.
I always love looking through the winning blogs as they
are great resource blogs to bookmark and refer to throughout the ensuing year. This year I was surprised to notice that
they were mostly blogs I hadn’t visited before. Ronnie Burt from Edublogs
has a post that shows the categories of the competition and announces the
five winners in each section. His post can be accessed here.
I am adding the winners below for easier reference.
