The international Edublog Awards (http://www.incsub.org/awards/) are an online community-based initiative designed to recognise and celebrate excellence in educational and scholarly blogging (edublogging) and promote the use of web logs to support teaching and learning.
The awards were founded by James Farmer (http://incsub.org/) in 2004, in response to a call by Alex Halavais (http://alex.halavais.net/) for an award programme in response to the under representation/recognition of educational uses and users of blogs in existing blog awards, and are currently managed by Josie Fraser (http://fraser.typepad.com/edtechuk). This year’s awards team were geographically based in Europe, Canada and the US.
The event is designed to achieve four things:
Promote and publicise the positive and creative use of new web technologies and practises in the classroom and throughout both formal and informal education.
Create an annotated archive/resource which captures the spirit and concerns of the edublogging community and exemplifies best practice.
Recognise and reward the achievements of individual edubloggers.
Contribute to edublogger community building and networks of practise.
