Entering the Edu Blogger 2009 Awards

Posted by Brian Kelly on 1 Mar 2009

Online College Edu Blogger Scholarship ContestI know from recent discussions that some people don’t like awards being given to bloggers for various reasons (blogging is a personal activity; awards can be divisive; etc.). But although there may be an element of truth in such comments I also feel that there can be benefits providing in entering such competitions.  For me entering a blog post in an international Edu Bloggers scholarship contest allows me to reach a much wider audience and to have the potential that this wider audience can provide feedback on my ideas and also, perhaps, be influenced by the topic of my post. And, to be honest, much of my work is about seeking to influence the educational sector in making effective use of networked technologies.  I may be getting on a bit, but I still feel passionate about such things!

Tomorrow’s post will provide me with the challenge of saying something important and influential in 200-300 words. And that in itself will provide me with a valuable learning opportunity – Twitter has helped me develop skills in writing pithy comments in 140 characters and my peer-reviewed papers are often about 5,00 words long. But how will I do in a middle distance event?

    Looking forward to it, Brian.
    For me your blog is mixture of the scarily technical and the highly interesting. And your tweets are about the same!
    Let’s see how the middle-distance runner in you fares!
