Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Educational Blog Awards of 2014 are open and my former nominations for 2013 are here. I have listed my top educational blogs here and will update these shortly. My nominations for 2014 are as follows …

“The Edublog Awards started in 2004 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, [councils] and educational institutions were blocking access of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes. The purpose of the Edublog awards is promote and demonstrate the educational values of [teachers and schools connecting via] social media.”

Nomination Tips:

  1. You can nominate in as many categories as you want.
  2. But, you can only make one nomination per category.
  3. You can’t nominate yourself!
  4. Even if you see your favourite blog/blogger/tweeter has already been nominated, it is best to nominate them again.
  5. Categories are competitive, and only the most nominated will make it to the voting round.

And if you’re interested, the winners of the 2013 Edublog Awards are here.

I was delighted to be short-listed for the following categories in 2013.

@TeacherToolkit

In 2010, Ross Morrison McGill founded @TeacherToolkit from a simple Twitter account in which he rapidly became the 'most followed teacher on social media in the UK'. In 2015, he was nominated for '500 Most Influential People in Britain' in The Sunday Times as one of the most influential in the field of education - he remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day ... Sharing online as @TeacherToolkit, he rebuilt this website (c2008) into what you are now reading, as one of the 'most influential blogs on education in the UK', winning the number one spot at the UK Blog Awards (2018). Today, he is currently a PGCE tutor and is researching 'social media and its influence on education policy' for his EdD at Cambridge University. In 1993, he started teaching and is an experienced school leader working in some of the toughest schools in London. He is also a former Teaching Awards winner for 'Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, London' (2004) and has written several books on teaching (2013-2018). Read more...
