It's that time of year again where nominations for the Edublog Awards are happening across the blogosphere. I have missed out on opportunities in the past because of finding consistent time to post on my blog. If you are new to reading educational blogs and learning about educational technology, then examining the previous winners is a valuable resource for you. The winners go back to 2007. Being out of the loop has left me missing some new bloggers out there. So my nominations will focus on some of the ones I have liked over the past three years....from the time I started this blog.
Here are my Nominations for the 2012 Edublog Awards:
