Edublog Awards: The Best 16 Eddies

I wish I could have listened the Eddies yesterday but I was on a familiar duty. Although being nominated is a huge honor in itself, Education & Tech wasn't among those Best Blogs in Education.

However, Angela Myers, one of the winners, wrote a post prior to the event, she's put it in this way: "The fabulous team at EdTechTalk will be providing a web-based audio stream of the event. The landing page for web based listening and text based chat will be http://edtechtalk.com/live. There's also a Facebook page for those of you over there, and there will be live updating over @ Twitter."

Miss W. in a comment left at the page created to present all winners, she asked: "Any chance in future for a student award as they don’t have the PLN that adult bloggers have? Even under primary/elementary, middle, high and senior high school. Remember these are the bloggers of the future we should be helping to grow."

Many of them are already part of our daily subscriptions and reading. But from Education and Technology, we want to congratulate all these innovative educators and champions. Visit, leave them a comment and hit their subscription button.
