Best Education Blog

| | Comments (51)

Nominate your choice for Best Education Blog. Blogs by educators, students, or blogs focused on educational issues would be appropriate nominees in this category.

Update (Oct. 17): Over the next 24 hours we will be closing nominations for most categories. This is a manual process so it takes a while to complete. As long as a category allows you to enter a comment (which is how you submit a nomination) nominations for that category are still open. When the option to leave a comment is not available you'll know nominations for that category are closed. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services your comments will be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment, but all anonymous comments will eventually be posted. Only authenticated comments will be published immediately.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" nomination for a site you're encouraged to use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2007.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

Superhero Historians is one of the finest sites I have found for teaching young students about their American History!

It is great for students of both public, private, and especially home schooled youngsters. The best part about it is that I, an adult, love it too, and find the perspective of the "Historians" to be not only entertaining, but informative.

Good job Superhero Historians!

I nominate

Funny enough to make you laugh out loud, and Mr. Teacher always shares his best ideas.

The Miss Rumphius Effect

Tricia at TMRE is an insightful and articulate blogger who writes about children's literature and teaching poetry, science, math... well anything, using children's books.

OK, in no way is my blog better than Matthew K. Tabor's, so he should really win as far as I'm concerned. But just to get my new little blog's name on the list:

WhenItRains ~ periodic downpours of information for Ontario home schoolers

upporting and promoting alternative and home-based education and taking the fear out of homeschooling through high school and applying to universities.

Blogger Sarah Rainsberger (oh wait, that's me!) is a long-time volunteer and advocate for home schoolers, bringing to the blog 18 years of experience as a master tutor, teacher, guidance counselor, writer, speaker and all around nice gal.

Take a peek at Kentucky School News and Commentary...humble but lovable; a different concept. KSN&C (new in March) had a lot to do with a shady state Education Commissioner-select resigning the week before she was supposed to take office.

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!

We're on the lookout for your quotes about The 2007 Weblog Awards.
