The Edublog Award 2006 nominations have been announced – with voting closing midnight GMT Saturday 16 December 2006 – and we’re pleased to be able to make one of the nominated resources available through Teaching Expertise.

The Coming of Age booklet was editedby Terry Freedman, of ICT in Education.  It brings together 13 writers with specialist knowledge of new internet developments (otherwise known as Web 2.0) and how they can be used in education. 

As Terry writes: “The purpose of this booklet, which brings together the expertise and experience of a range of leading-edge practitioners, is to provide a gentle introduction to Web 2.0 to teachers who aren’t at present too sure of what it’s all about.”

In Coming of Age, teachers can learn about RSS, blogging, photo-sharing, podcasting, wikis, social bookmarking and all the other exciting things that are transforming the web.

Coming of Age has been nominated in the Most Influential Post, Resource or Presentation 2006 category, along with:
