The Month in Review - October's Most Popular Posts

Good evening from Maine where I'm getting ready to fly to the Georgia Educational Technology Conference tomorrow. I'll be speaking there on Wednesday and Thursday. If you're going too, please say hello. Next week I'll be speaking at an event near my hometown in Connecticut.

At the end of every month I post a list of the most frequently read posts of the previous 30 days. This gives me a chance to see what you're interested in and you a chance to see what's trending.

Here are this month's most popular posts:

In November I'll be trying out a new way of offering professional development webinars. For the last few years I've offered them as three to five week courses. A lot of people have suggested offering each section of the courses as stand-alone webinars. So this month I'll be offering two one hour webinars. One on formative assessment and one on video creation. Registration will be available on Wednesday.
