We are ‘excited and delighted’ to be finalists in Blog Awards Ireland.
We find ourselves in the company of blogs that we greatly admire.
Anseo.net is a magazine style web site valued by teachers
for its information and opinion type pieces by Simon Lewis.
In particular, teacher has found Simon’s reviews
of new technology more than useful.
In addition he also has an uncanny knack of being able
to accurately predict the future of ICT in classrooms in Ireland.
Then there is Evelyn O’Connor’s Leaving Cert English.net .
This invaluable resource for all
Junior and Leaving Certificate English students
and their teachers too I suspect. A source of advice
and information for students in a year when many of them
must feel caught between a rock and a hard place.
Finalists, the Youth Media Team are a group of teenagers
who attend and report on educational conferences in Ireland.
Their reports, in the form of lively interviews, blogs and tweets
provide a youthful and informed perspective on education
and educationalists in Ireland.
We are delighted that the list of finalists include another
This blog showcases the wonderful work of students and teachers.
We particularly like their use of podcasts and vines.
The podcasts give the students a voice.
The vines really bring their blog to life.
They remind us of the animated photographs
in Harry Potter.
But that is not all.
You can see these finalists along
with three other excellent blogs;
‘My College Advice’
and ‘Dr. How Science Wows’ here:
