Who will it be? AllSpecialED’s Best of 2013 aims to introduce therapists, educators, and families to new products, programs, and technology platforms that can be used with wide range of learners. Featured ASE “reviewers” will evaluate chosen nominees offering their insights and experiences. Through this process we hope people can expand their teaching tool box, keep up with the latest in product developments, and make better decisions to meet the needs of their students.
AllSpecialED’s Best of 2013 consists of four stages:
- Community Nominations
- Award Ceremony
Community Nominations: All you need to do is…
Write a short post in our review section of the forum that includes the phrase “I nominate…” the name of the product, and why you like it. Share your nominations using twitter (#Best2013), Facebook, Google+, and email. Sorry, you can’t nominate yourself.
All nominees will be contacted for an opportunity to proceed to our finalist round. First hand reviews by featured “AllSpecialED reviewers” are required in order to be considered for the final round.
The Voting Process
Once the finalists have been chosen a list of categories for the products (i.e. best app, best book, etc.) will be created. Voting commences in December and anyone can vote for a product, program, or technology platform by visiting the voting page for each category.
The Award Ceremony
An online Award Ceremony in early January will commence. The winners of each category will be announced.
