Wherein I start (and end) my campaign to get us SLPs and other Special Educators a bit more recognized in the edublogosphere.
The Edublog Awards is an annual online "event" meant to recognize excellent use of social media in educational circles. Nominations are open to any blogger, and instructions on nominating are available here at the Edublog Awards Homepage (they involve creating a post like this one with your nominations, linking to the Edublogs page, and notifying Edublogs of your post via an online form). You need not nominate someone in all categories, just as many as you want to...so here goes!!
Please check out the Edublogs page and get us slpeeps and pals nominated!
Best resource sharing blog- Speech Gadget, I love Deb's ideas, bring 'em on!
Most influential blog post- as a big advocate for consultation, I'll nominate A Case for Consultation. Most influential tweet / series of tweets / tweet based discussion- #slpeeps, of course! Best teacher blog- It's Not All Flowers and Sausages, celebrating the ups and downs of life in a classroom. Best school administrator blog- Connected Principals- I had the opportunity to hear Patrick Larkin of Burlington HS present recently and, wow, he's great! Best educational podcast- GeekSLP, Barbara makes great vodcasts!
I get a lot from reading you all, and thanks for being part of our little (but growing) online world...
