What education blogs inspire you, which do you follow and why?
The Educational Blog Awards of 2015 are open and close today! For some reason I seem to have missed the promotion and nominations online this year. However, with less than 6 hours to go, I have managed to make the following UK nominations.
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.
My nominations for 2015 are as follows; click each category below to see who I have nominated.
- Best new blog: Reflecting English by teacher Andy Tharby who tweets at @ATharby.
