The Edublog Awards are coming up, which is a chance to share and recognise some of the best online educational resources out there. To find out more about how these awards work, please visit the Edublog Awards website.
Here are my nominations:
Best resource sharing blog: Free Tech 4 Teachers (regular and useful updates on techy teacher stuff, often with suggestions for how to use it and with some really useful Google documents).
Best individual blog: NotExactlyRocketScience (making real science readable and accessible. I love it.)
