Melville Intermediate - 2010 Edublogs Nomination

We were very humbled today to see the short-list for the 2010 Edublog Awards, and to find that our class page had been short listed for best use of visual/video.

This is a huge honour for this site, and first we'd like to thank the three sites that nominated us, Mrs Bee from the Super Scoopers, Stephen from the Ins and Outs and Miss W. This is a huge award to be nominated for, we're currently one of three New Zealand sites that have made the short-list, so we'd also like to congratulate the Ins and Outs and Room 17 at Bailey Road School.

But it doesn't end there, some of the other class pages that we've networked with in the past year are also on the short-list including Mr Chamberlain from the USA and Mrs Yollis from Califorina.

Voting Closes on December 14th and only opened today so its a very exciting time for everyone in Room Eight!
