Here's an idea - could not Edugeek award awards to suppliers, etc based on polls of edugeekers? Award for best IT supplier, best IT support from a company, etc. And, oh yes, an award for the worst as well!
Just an idea considering how powerful the forum is now.
Didn't we discuss this a while back with regard to software?
or am I going completly mental?
.....it's a possibility
We could have a dinner sponsored by one of the big companies with a nice meal and some free booze at a swanky hotel and make it the oscars of the educational ict world.
Rob Brydon or Scott Mills could present the awards.
For a second there I read 'Heather Mills'!
There's an idea for an award: 'The Heather Mills Wooden Leg Award' for leeching the most funds from an unsuspecting individual/organisation.....
- Award for Best IT Supplier
- Award for Best Poster
- Award for Best Tech Under 18
- Award for Best Tech Over 18
- Award for Best Contributed Edugeeker (to posts)
- erm.. running low help me..??
Best Tech Under 21 instead of 18 then you're looking like something I might have a chance at winning lol. I just miss the 18 y/o one by almost two years :(
I don't see the point in dividing the tech award into two age groups, it's quite demeaning to younger techs as it'll be seen as a "junior" award. Simply have a runner up for "best tech".
I'd back a "worst" of each category too, including a bloopers award for person making the largest mistake of the year :)
We did look at the possibility of this for BETT, but I'll be honest and say that it is costly to run and organise, difficult to sort a suitable evening for it when we can also get suppliers and the like along, sponsorship was concentrated on other things ... and I wouldn't have had a chance to win anything so no-one else can either! :-(
Oh I dunno - you'd probably win the award for the most erudite and lengthy posts!

It is my yearning to follow in the footsteps, examine the examples or even to suggest a similarity to the sheer magnitude that is the vocal and mental dexterity in discourse that exists in the personages of Gyles Daubeney Brandreth and Paul James Martin.
Nay, I say to you ... the language of the Bard is not dead ... it is alive and well and is resplendent in its suitability to such a noble collective of immense intellects. No more, 'all your base' for me ... I will tarry my tongue with such witticisms that will inspire wonder whilst others babble and blather. No utterances shall pour forth unless they add even a pittance of pith in our ponderance within this community.
Shall I say on my dear friends ... do I go forth now, to gabble and gibber ... or do I ...
erm ... Witch ... why are you coming towards me with a bat? Yes ... I admit you do seem to swing it well, but it is getting a bit close ...
Witch ... you are starting to worry me ...
/me backs out to the door ...
