It’s that time again! Nominations for the Edublog Awards are open for the 11th year!

The purpose of the Edublog Awards, also known as the Eddies, is promote and celebrate the educational values of social media. One of the benefits of educational blogging is to give students an authentic audience for their ideas, writing and projects. Blogging gives them the opportunity to become educated global learners, connected and ready for the 21st century world. I urge you to participate in celebrating those educators and students you respect in the social media world. Share your nominations with the world!

The process is really simplified this year. Simply fill in this nomination form and you are done. If you also have a blog, you can publish your results, but it’s not required this year. Get the word out!

*Nominations will close at 11.59 PM EST USA on November 24th

It’s never easy to make a choice because there are so many fabulous blogs and teachers to choose from. My nominations all stem from how their posts, tweets, or influence made a difference in how or what I taught this year.

  2. Dear Mrs Hembree,

    Oh my goodness is it that time of the year. I sure and hope to be voting for you and your amazing blog.

    I just don’t seem to jump on the computer these days like I used to. But in saying this I always make a point of call to look and your blog and Mrs Yollis blog to read what you have posted.

    Now all the very best with the edublog awards. You and your blog are already a winner in my eyes all the way down under.

    Sincerely,
    AA 🙂

    • Hello AA,
      So wonderful to hear from you! You and BB must be so busy these days. It’s coming to the end of your school year and summer is just around the corner. Add the holiday season and I can understand why getting on the computer isn’t a priority right now. I do appreciate your support of this blog. If we make it to the voting rounds, I will let you know.
      We are off for a few days on our Thanksgiving break. It will be nice to eat, relax and spend time with family and friends.
      I’m off to visit Mrs. Yollis’ blog. Please say hello to BB.
      From,
      Mrs. Hembree
