I am very excited to see that the Edublog nominations are open again. I have found out about so many great educators by looking at the nomination and winner list.
Choosing just one person to highlight for these categories is very difficult, but here goes.
Best individual tweeter-@SNewco aka Scott Newcomb. I always get the latest and greatest in mobile learning from him.
Best ed tech / resource sharing blog- Richard Byrne's Free Technology for Teachers. I know he has won this before, but he is amazing. When I introduce other teachers to reading blogs this is the first one I share with everyone.
Best twitter hashtag- #tlchat, This is the hashtag that I always check to keep a pulse on library trends and news.
Best librarian / library blog- This is the toughest one for me because there are so many wonderful librarian bloggers, but this year my nomination goes to Jennifer LaGarde's Adventures of Library Girl. She has consistently inspired me with her creative ideas and passion.
Best educational use of audio / video / visual / podcast- The Mighty Little Librarian's Tech Tuesdays. I love this series because it helps her teachers learn more about technology, improve their teaching, and advocates for her role as a tech leader in her school. All around a wonderful project.
Best educational wiki- Daring Tech Wiki by Gwyneth Jones. Gwyneth is so generous with her materials and the graphics alone are a reason to visit this wonderland of visual stimulation.
Best open PD / unconference / webinar series- TL Virtual Cafe- my source for all the latest and greatest in the library world
Good luck to everyone. I can't wait to see the nomination list and start adding to my reader.
