Edublog Awards 2013 - Nominations

Kairos EdTech

This is my first time participating in the Edublog Awards. Because blogging has been an instrumental part of reflecting on and improving my teaching and coaching practices, I''m excited to nominate the following candidates for these awards.

Finding and Creating Buy-In for a New LMS


The four finalist were Canvas , Schoology , JumpRope and My Big Campus. Prior to our pilots, we invited our LMS finalists to provide webinars for all teachers to view the features. Teachers and students liked both Canvas and Schoology. However, what turned the tide in favor of Schoology was the company’s marketing. For a couple of years before we began to explore this topic, Schoology had allowed free access to teachers.

Setting The Stage For A Great School Year

The Web20Classroom
