In the past six months, I’ve posted over 130 articles on topics ranging from tech ed trends to how-tos, problem solving, and pedagogic discussions. I like to step back a few times a year and determine what readers are most interested in. WordPress makes that easy with their statistics.
I calculate what’s trending on my blog by which of my posts are popular in a particular time period. Here’s the run-down so far this year:
- 20 Great Research Websites for Kids
- 20 Common Computer Problems and Solutions (a Third Grader Can Do)Great Websites
- 107 Favorite iPad Apps for K-8
- Digital Citizenship
- How Minecraft Teaches Reading, Writing and Problem Solving
- 7 Education Trends You Don’t Want to Miss
- How to Prepare Students for PARCC Tests
- 5 Free Digital Tools for the No Budget Classroom
- 5 Programs That Make Digital Note-taking Easy
- 8 Education Tools That Are Going Away
