It’s April 20th, 2012
If you are inspired to nominate them, please let me know. SL is offering a wonderful prize over on their website for those so motivated (a free tech book of your choice)!
Here’s the contest blurb:
Have you had success with a particular ed-tech product or service? Want to recognize that product and share your success with your colleagues? Then nominate your favorite product(s) for our 2012-2013 Ed-Tech Reader’s Choice Awards from eSchool Media.
Nominations can include hardware, software, or online services in any area of educational technology. Please include the name of the product or service, the company that provides it, and a brief but detailed description (no more than 200 words) telling us how you use the product or service and how it has benefitted your college, university, school, school district, classroom, teachers, students, or its community. (The more specifics you can provide, the better—for example, “We’ve used X in our fourth-grade classes for the past two years, and scores on our state reading exam have improved by 30 percent…”)
IMPORTANT: Each nomination must be accompanied by a valid school eMail address.
How It Helps

2. Give top-flight products and services the national recognition they deserve.
3. Encourage ed-tech vendors to produce more high-quality products and service for education.
