Woah–I’ve been nominated for a Bammy Award in the category of School Technologist by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences. Here’s the reasoning submitted by the Nominations Committee for the nomination:
Jacqui Murray has taught K-8 technology for 15 years. Based on her experience, she wrote a tech curriculum for kindergarten-fifth grade, which is now used in hundreds of schools all over the country. She is webmaster for five blogs (most notably the award-winning Ask a Tech Teacher), an Amazon Vine Voice book reviewer, a technology columnist for Examiner.com, Editorial Review Board member for ISTE’s Journal for Computing Teachers, IMS tech expert, and a weekly contributor to Technology in Education. She has also written several ebooks on integrating tech into core classroom units.
I’ve worked with Rae Pica over at BAM on her radio show, most notably this conversation about keyboarding. She always has great guests and the discussion becomes spirited as we share ideas on how to best deliver quality education. I’m humbled to be nominated.
Of course, the nomination includes a voting segment. I’d be thrilled if you’d click here and vote for me. If I’m not right there on the front page, search for me with the tool in the middle of the screen:
