Eircom Golden Spider Awards
Yes, it's still half term but we have awoken from our slumber to hear that The Frog Blog is amongst the eight shortlisted websites in the Best Blog category of this year's Eircom Golden Spider Awards. The Golden Spiders are Ireland's premier web awards, recognising excellence in Internet and digital media in Ireland. To be nominated is a huge honour. The Frog Blog is in great company, as our St. Columba's colleague Julian Girdham, has also been shortlisted in the Best Blog category for his blog SCC English. The winners will be announced at a gala evening in the Burlington Hotel on the 19th of November. Two education websites nominated within the Best Blog category shows the relevance of Internet technology to teaching and learning in general, and specifically highlights the success of our approach here in St. Columba's.
