Melville Intermediate - Edublog Nominations 2013

This year we'd like to make some nominations for the 2013 Edublog Awards.  

Best New Blog: There's been some class pages that we've been following closely this year, however the best class page according to the Room Five students is 8C at Selwyn House, Christchurch.  We've been thrilled with the collaboration that this year has allowed us - but more than that its just a wonderful class page, a huge amount of quality work and wonderful posts and a great class site.

Best Class Blog: Mrs Yollis Classroom Page.  Consistently the best classroom page in the world.  Completly inspirational.

Best Student Blog: Miriams Magical Moments
This is one individual student blog that you can keep going back to.  The quality of the work that on show, the presentation, the writing is amazing.  An examples for everyone to how a wonderful site can be run.

Best Twitter Hashtag: #comments4kids Its always a great source of connections and potential collaborators.  Its been a #hashtag that we've used too infrequently this year.   

Best Free Web Tool: Vimeo - invaluable to this site and most class pages.

Best Educational Use of a Social Network   Stephen Baker and Pascal Dresse and the team at Kidsedchatnz.  Innovative and a great use of Twitter.


  1. @ Mr. Webb,

    Thank you so much for the very kind words and the nomination! You really made me smile! Blogging has so many benefits, but friendship is a very special part of it. :-)

    I wish you and your class a wonderful end-of-the-year!

    1. Mrs Yollis I have to say that you've consistently had the best page in the world, so its well deserved and look forward to you winning again.

  2. Hi Mr. Webb,

    Thank you so much for nominating 8C Happenings. We really appreciate it. We have really enjoyed connecting with your class over this year and it is sad that it has come to an end. Personally I have really really enjoyed reading your posts, watching the videos you post and seeing the various exciting things that happen at MIS and also seeing the different cultures you celebrate and show at MIS. But most of all I and my classmates have enjoyed becoming friends.
