This is just a quick post to celebrate the fact that this blog has now attracted over 200,000 hits. That’s not as many as some education blogs but it demonstrates more interest in what I have to say than I ever expected.
Over the course of writing the posts, I have learnt a lot and made many friends online. I have also, inevitably, been subjected to a few attacks. I don’t think anyone with anything worth saying will avoid that so don’t let that put you off too much if you are new to blogging.
It’s worth briefly restating my mission: I am not here to convince or convert. I am here to express my view of the world of education. I hope that others might take something useful away from that. For instance, you might have had the same thoughts as me at some point and, through this blog, you might now be able to locate a relevant paper or piece of evidence. That is my hope.
Anyway, here are my top five posts in descending order of the number of hits:
- Can teaching be given a score? (8,277 hits)
- Five Common Misconceptions about Learning (2,706 hits)
- Six signs that you’re a progressive educator (2,622 hits)
- 5 features of poor teacher education (2,446 hits)
- Is book sampling valid? (2,408 hits)
Now, what shall I write about next…
