EdTech 537: My Personal Blogging Plan

Create a plan for your own personal blogging for the next two months (i.e., August and September). Your plan should include:

the types of entries you plan to post
the specific dates that you will post each entry
the topic/theme for each entry

blog plan

I have put a great deal of thought into what I would like to blog about and what I should blog about. The primary focus of my blog for EdTech 537 was centered around Algebra (the main subject that I have taught for the past 22 years). I also run a tutoring business and I could really use a blog to help me communicate with my students and parents. So my Blog Plan will be to do both!  I am not using dates, instead I am using days of the week since my goal is to do this throughout the entire Fall 2014.

Sundays … every Sunday I will post a “Problems of the Week” (see my Pre-Plan for Blogging).  I am really glad I posted this early because I got some great feedback!  I will also use a Google doc spreadsheet to help keep track of points during the school year.  During the summer, this will be just for fun!  Each week there will be an easy, medium, and challenge level problem.  I will try to do a wide variety of high school level math.

Wednesdays … every Wednesday I plan on posting tips and hints to the “Problems of the Week”.  If every question is solved I will post an additional challenging level problem.

Thursdays … important information for my business.  The format of this will vary.  Some weeks I will post a To Do list for both students and/or parents.  Some weeks I will post links to important or helpful sites.  I think that by picking a specific day of the week, that parents and students will develop a routine of checking my blog every Thursday.  This should dramatically improve my communication skills!


About kimberlyhefty

Hello. My name is Kimberly Hefty and I live in Sammamish, Washington. For the past 23 years I have taught high school and college level mathematics. 13 years ago I started a private tutoring business. I specialize in working with public high school students who are taking math courses "on-line". I work closely with both the students and the local school district. I typically work with 40-50 students per week. I also have 2 children ages 14 and 23. My daughter just graduated from Elon University in North Carolina. My son plays competitive golf and premiere soccer so most of my weekends are spent at either soccer or golf tournaments. I am excited to be completing the Master's In Educational Technology Program from BSU (M.E.T.) Spring 2015! Through this program I have gained a better understanding of educational technology and it’s applications. I believe that the knowledge that I have gained will be beneficial personally, as well as to my students. With these skills that I have learned in the Educational Technology program, I hope to help myself and my students be successful in future endeavors. The M.E.T. program has allowed me to create an environment for all of us, my students along with myself, to gain skills for education, employment, and existence.
