Libraries and Transliteracy has been nominated in two categories of the Edublog Awards – Best New Blog and Best Group Blog. It is an honor to be included among so many amazing blogs and bloggers. When I look though the lists I see the hard work and dedication of so many great people, it is worth checking out the lists just for to discover great new blogs to read, and of course you should vote ;-)
Some information if you’re not familiar with the awards:
The Edublog Awards is a community based incentive started in 2005 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts 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 these social media.
The best aspects include that it creates a fabulous resource for educators to use for ideas on how social media is used in different contexts, with a range of different learners.
It introduces us all to new sites that we might not have found if not for the awards process.
