This sort of thing is always a bit weird. I usually tweet or post something about the Edublog Awards every year. But this is the first time that I’ve done it when my site has been a finalist.


Same as always . . . but this time with just a touch of shameless self-promotion. I really do like getting the list of both the finalists and winners. I always find people, sites, and tools that are new and useful. And the cool thing for History Tech lovers, is that HT was selected as a finalist in Best Ed Tech category.

You can find the entire list of categories here. And the touch of shameless self-promotion list highlighting the Best Ed Tech / Resource Sharing Blog can be found here.

So head over. Find some new and useful people, sites, and tools. And if you feel inclined, give History Tech a little love.

Need the voting instructions?

This is the second year in a row the EduBlog Awards have leveraged public voting using

This means you can:

  • see the real-time vote counts

  • embed the actual list and let people vote right on your blog!
  • the Tweeter and Lifetime Achievement categories have a built in twitter list you can follow

You must login with or create a Listly account to vote – this is the only way we can make it fair so you can only vote once per finalist per category.
