Education Blog Awards

I’d like to say thank you for all of the votes for my blog in both the ‘Teacher’s blog of the year’ and ‘Most Influential Blog of the Year’. Voting has now closed and this blog was outside of the top ten, but thank you for your votes and support anyway.

I had many tweets from people telling me they had voted and it makes me smile to think that my silly ideas, shared links and waffle help other teachers across the country.

So thank you again.

And a MASSIVE well done and thank you to Chris Ratcliffe for his hard work in organising the awards in the first place. It’s been a truly epic task and there are a lot of teachers and pupils who are thankful for his hard work.

Education Blog Awards 2012

It’s that time of year again when the best blogs are highlighted and celebrated. This started last year after a conversation with Chris Ratliffe (@chrisrat) amongst others and the fact that there didn’t seem to be a UK-based blogging award. So Chris and his team got to work and one was created. I was lucky enough to be shortlisted last year in the teacher blog category and my school, St John’s, were shortlisted in the whole-school category.

Once a blog is nominated (by anyone), the top ten then get passed on to a selection of judges that then choose the outright winners.

Another great thing is that this highlights the amazing work that is going on in so many classrooms up and down the country and will hopefully get more schools blogging as a result. I know of at least two teachers that got curious about the awards and have since setup their own class blogs as a result. Which is great news for the children involved!

So why not vote for your favourite blogs here: http://educationblogawards.org/
