Nominations for the Edublogs Awards from the University of Northampton:

Best new blog  Images of Disability (Kyffin Jones).

New Blog created in November 2013 for Undergraduate module examining perceptions of disability.  Students were asked to source images of disability portrayed in the Media and add as a post, then use the Class Blog to support discussion.  This became even more meaningful when Dominic Hyams, whose YouTube video ‘Crip on a Trip’ was posted on the Blog, was invited in to meet the class, to discuss and challenge their own perceptions.

Best ed tech / resource sharing blog 

Teaching ideas for early years and primary (fantastic resources created and shared by trainee teachers).

Best educational use of audio/video/visual/podcast

“Blogging for Students”– A short video by the School of Education. Teaching Students are given their chance to describe how well and how effectively they feel blogging has become a way to record and assess their work.

Best individual blog
