in General Commentary

The shortlisted entries for the Edublog Awards 2010 have announced and the voting is on. There are just two days left to vote. Anyone can vote. Click on the links below and support the pre-school and Scottish entries. It’s a quick and simple system. It would be great to see the profile of both sectors raised within the wider education world.

Voting has ended – see results below

Best teacher blog

Teacher Tom.
YES 1ST PLACE
Tom Hobson posts daily about life at his cooperative pre-school. The posts can be funny, serious, heart-warming, sobering and all-in-all very interesting. He thinks and talks from the heart as well as his head and demonstrates what emancipated educators achieve. Click here to vote.

Best group blog

Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning.
YES 1ST PLACE
Sherry and Donna have the most professional and organised blog out there in the pre-school world. Each activity is meticulously photographed and give us step-by-step instructions for all sorts of activities from water walls to flying balloons. Click here to vote.

Best individual tweeter

Teach Pre-school.
YES 1ST PLACE
Deborah is friendly and supportive. She is an effective communicator and has the Twitter thing sussed! Click here to vote.

Best wiki

Metasaga.
YES 2ND RUNNER UP
Metasaga is a beautiful thinking skills framework that helps children and adults reflect upon their personal circumstances through looking at events and objects around them. The wiki was created Kate Coutts, Head Teacher at Uyeasound – the most northern school in the British Isles. Click here to vote.

Many thanks to those who have voted. I call the above successes a result!

I voted for everyone you suggested excpet had a question about the Tweet category. I don’t Tweet / use Twitter, etc. so can I still vote for this category? I have stayed away from Tweeting, as blogging and Yahoo Groups take up lots of my time already. If it is okay to still vote, I will vote as you suggested.
hope that you are enjoying your weekend,
Colleen:)

Hi Colleen

What a brilliant question. The answer is Yes – just go to the “click to vote” website. You just have to trust my judgement on this one!

One of the reasons I’m encouraging people to vote is to help people realise the wider value of pre-school blogs and tweeters.

Pre-school blogs and tweets are friendly and supportive of wider communities such as your own homeschool and my “Uh-oh – outdoor play – hey that’ll do me” communities.

I feel it’s time to return the favours.

Oh and thanks for being so enthusiastic online!

Best wishes
Juliet

Juliet THANK YOU for your continued support of “irresistible ideas”. Sherry and I consider ourselves mere babes-in-the-woods when it comes to blogging so you very kind words shall be humbly remembered.
Donna 🙂 🙂

It’s just lovely to see the success of “Irresistible Ideas” and “Teacher Tom” being formally recognised.

I hope that the collective power of persuasion has been enough to get in the top three in each category.

I did send “Metasaga” round the outdoorsy people in Scotland. Cos if you don’t ask, you don’t always get!
