Statistics for September 2017

This entry is being posted back-dated.

A very quick statistics entry this month.  In September 2017 there were 4,140 hits from 2,296 different visitors.  This was down by about 400 hits, but up by about 300 visitors from August.  Interestingly, it was up about 500 hits and 200 visitors from September 2016.

 

Finally, the statistics from my old blog site (which still does generate some traffic)…

Statistics for August 2017

This entry is being posted back-dated.

This month there were 4,592 hits from 2,527 different visitors.  This was down by about 1000 hits, but up by about 100 visitors from July.  Interestingly, it wasup about 800 hits and 500 visitors from August 2016.

The top ten entries over the past 30 days (keeping in mind I’m drafting this message 10 days into August) include:

  1. Student Holiday Notice
  2. We Missed You at Last Week’s Webinar
  3. Questions About The School Of Tomorrow
  4. Special Offer For Your Family From K12
  5. Instructional Technology Dissertation Topics
  6. Introducing Our New Social Media Course at FLVS
  7. FLVS And Web 2.0
  8. December CIDER Session
  9. 20th Beloit College Mindset List Coming Soon
  10. Guest Blogger: Examining Accelerated Christian Education

When you look at the search terms that brought people here, it does make a little sense.

  1. notice for holiday to students
  2. holiday notice for students
  3. notice for holiday in school
  4. ritzhaupt
  5. school holiday notice sample
  6. holiday note to students
  7. early bird
  8. a review of open access literature
  9. school holiday notice format
  10. academia, 251 kearny st., suite 520, san francisco, ca, 94108 unsubscribe privacy policy terms of service

Month after month, I am always amazed at the number of educators (administrators presumably) that are searching for holiday notices – and the number that find my blog blog because of that.  Oh well…

EDTECH537 – End Of Course

Seven weeks ago I posted an entry entitled EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom that described a course I have been teaching for the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University this summer semester. During that time I have posted weekly messages to describe what I was asking the students to do and the readings I had assigned.

I have also posted entries for all of the activities I have asked of the students:

I have also posted sample blog entries for each of the different types of entries that I have asked of the students.

Finally, during Week 5 I asked the students to participate in blogging in three different formats (and posted a sample entry for one of those):

This year I also made a point of highlighting things in the monthly statistics entries for my EDTECH537 students.

I always post this summary message for those folks who haven’t been following along for the past seven weeks, as I suspect this will be the closest I ever get to one of those # days to a better blog series.

EDTECH537 – Blogging Plan

As I mentioned in the Week 7 post for my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom students, I wanted to post a sample of a blogging plan.  Below, I have added my general plan for the month of August.  As I often mention, I tend to post 6-8 entries each day, but most are ones that I just post from my inbox.  There are only a few entries that I specifically plan out (as you can see below).

You can see previous plans that I have posted at:

EDTECH537 – Video Entry: All About Online School

As I mentioned in the Week 7 post for my EDTECH537 – Blogging In The Classroom students, this week students can post two entries of any type.  As a sample today, I am posting a video entry.  This video is from some kid who apparently goes to a full-time online school.  In fact, all I did was search on YouTube for K-12 online learning and there were a lot of these kinds of videos there; which actually struck me as interesting in and of itself.  Anyway…
