This was the first time I nominated and voted in the Edublog Awards. I nominated those edubloggers from my social network whom I thought were the best in their categories.
I was so sad that Lisa Lane, Patricia Hensley and John Mak were not selected for the edublog awards finals and I was so happy that Claudia Ceraso and Sabrina De Vita were nominated for an edublog award. They were all my nominees in their categories
With the help of Lorena Zanola we contacted our social networks to find people willing to vote for them.
This is the page of the Most Influential Tweet Series 2009 – The Edublog Awards, where Claudia Ceraso ‘s post was competing. You can find the list of all nominated edublogs, the winners and the results for each blog
Claudia’s post, Blogworthy Tweets, was the 1st Runner Up!!
This is the page of the Best Class Edublog 2009 – The Edublog Awards, where Sabrina De Vita Blog was competing. You can find the list of all nominated edublogs, the winners and the results for each blog
Sabrina’s blog, Saint Exupery 6, was 6th out of 38 class edublogs. I was so happy!!!
I am also very happy because Sabrina, Lorena and I learned a lot during the awards.
I also want to give thanks to David Truss , who was my teacher during these days and so he really deserved my vote for the Best Teacher of 2009, although I haven’t nominated him
Voting is very different than nominating.
Nominating is more emotional since we can only select a few from the thousands of available excellent edublogs.
And you really want that your nominated blogs win the Awards.
In many categories you will have to vote for edublogs you didn’t nominate.
The voting exposes us to all the nominated edublogs. Since we have to chose one in each category we need to review them. So I think that the Awards are an excellent way to promote many great edublogs.
I want to give thanks to all my friends who voted for any of the edublogs I nominated.
