I was dissapointed to discover that the annual Edublogs Awards has not included a virtual world catagory, choosing to instead encourage people to add a nomination under social-networks. This further marginalises a valid medium in favour of adding popularist and meaningless things such as ‘best free tool’ or hashtag. Classroom 2.0 wins Best Social Network due to it’s size. And yet – games and virtual worlds have been one of the few ‘new’ inclusions at conferences this year, no longer in the back room, but on the main stage. Go figure.
