I have now been officially blogging and posting a wiki for four months. Thanks for your comments, your bookmarks, your subscriptions to the blog, and your memberships on the wiki. The wiki alone has had over 7000 visites in this short period of time. I have become a great fan of blogs and wikis and have prepared my list for the Edublog Awards2 2009. I did not nominate every category because I have not investigated all of the areas. It was hard for me to select nominations because there are so many oustanding authors of blogs and wikis on the web. Some of my picks are based on listening  to individuals at conferences and then visiting their blog.

 I just want to thank all the authors of wiki’s and blogs for their hard work at providing information that benefits students and teachers everyday. If you wish to nominate an author of a wiki or blog please visit Edublog Awards 2009 !  The nomination period runs until December 8, 2009.

Categories include ; Best individual blog, Best individual tweeter, Best group blog, Best new blog, Best class blog, Best student blog, Best resource sharing blog, Most influential blog post, Most influential tweet / series of tweets / tweet based discussion, Best teacher blog, Best librarian / library blog, Best educational tech support blog, Best elearning / corporate education blog, Best educational use of audio, Best educational use of video / visual, Best educational wiki, Best educational use of a social networking service, Best educational use of a virtual world, Lifetime achievement.

The time you take nominating will be appreciated by all of those people who spend hours  researching and bring ing great ideas to all of  us everyday!  It really is a great way to say, thank you! Below you will find my attempt at  selecting my nominations. Take a moment to visit these outstanding links for some great resources and reflections. Also, I will be creating a blogroll on the 21centuryedtech Wiki. If you know of , or author, an outstanding blog or wiki please let me know so I can include it on the Wiki. Feel free to visit the 21centuryedtech Wiki  for some great information and resources, and as always as always, thanks for reading! – Mike

      For those that do not know, your site is one that houses a rich and extensive collection of resources for twenty-first century learning. A vast majority are free, which is becoming most important in today’s economy. Thanks for sharing and please know that the nomination is my honor! Best wishes!

      Kathy,
      It is an honor to nominate someone who has contributed so much to effective technology integration. I really like your survey on the last blog and plan on finding out results from my school. Your blog I feel should be on every teacher’s required reading list! Keep posting!

      You keep up the great work. For those that have not visited your Blog, it is a great resource for those of us that are in the every day classroom. It is a must read for those trying to integrate technology. Again, the honor is mine to nominate a fellow presenter at BLC09. Looking forward to the next one. Boston is an awesome city! Keep up the great facilitation for all of us!
