I Know I Don't Know

I have relearned a very important lesson this evening: I know I know nothing.

Okay, perhaps nothing is a bit extreme. But after being directed to the recent EduBlog Awards list by Anne Davis over at EduBlog Insights, I am overwhelmed: so many wonderful blogs, so much information, so many ideas. I’ve only recently wandered into the edublogosphere; I’m still learning the language, figuring out the netiquette. Perusing the list of nominated blogs, I am awestruck.

I haven’t made it all the way through the list yet, but I thought I would share a few of my favorites:

Best Research Sharing Blog nominee -

Most Influential Blog Entry of 2007 nominee - “Did you know?” by Scott McLeod and Karl Fisch at Dangerously Irrelevant and their related wiki site, Shift Happens, and ”The Ripe Environment” at Discourse about Discourse

Best Teacher Blog nominee - Clay Burell’s Beyond School

Check out the list for yourself!

I'm new to the whole Twitter thing. Still figuring it out.

I've also been reading many of your posts blog posts at Beyond School and find myself agreeing with a lot of what you write. I especially appreciated the post on "Risking Real Critical Thinking in School".

We're all new to everything and trying to figure it out too.

Glad you like the Maher post. Schooliness is so ridiculous. I almost want to get called on the carpet for shaking things up. But luckily, I can afford to get fired. And wouldn't want to work for a school that wouldn't let me teach controversy.

Anyhoo - hope to see you on the twittory!
