Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Scheduling Blog Posts

Scheduling blog posts allows you to time your posts to appear exactly when you want students to see them for the first time. In the video below I give the example of scheduling my end-of-day student survey to appear at 3:15pm. Scheduling posts is a great option for those who don’t think that they have time to write a blog post every day.  You can  take advantage of scheduling by writing posts in blocks and then spreading them throughout the week. 

Here are this week’s most popular posts from Free Technology for Teachers:

1. Math Word Wall Posters for Elementary School Classrooms
