I wanted to make a few more comments following-up on my post from yesterday. In that post, I highlighted how excited I was that this blog and In Practice were both nominated for this year’s Edublogs Awards, and how you could vote for this blog here and In Practice here.
One thing I forgot to mention was that, even though In Practice is indeed a group blog written by a collective of teachers, it was initiated by my Sacramento teacher colleague Alice Mercer. Alice continues to provide essential leadership to all of us.
I also forgot to highlight two other great groups that hundreds and thousands of teachers participate in (including me) — EFL Classroom 2.0 and Classroom 2.o — were both nominated in the “Best Educational Use of a Social Networking Service” category.
Dave Deubel has done an extraordinary job beginning and continuing to provide leadership to EFL Classroom 2.0. He contributes enormously to the resources available to ESL/EFL teachers and students.
Steve Hargadon has played, and continues to play, a similar role in Classroom 2.0. It’s a great place for teachers to connect, experiment, and learn with each other.
Congratulations to both!
