In preparation for the upcoming school year, I have joined the Teacher Challenge on Edublogs. This is a free professional development program to help teachers increase blogging skills and connect globally with other classrooms. I observed Feedjit, ClustrMaps, and Flag Counter, on other participants’ blogs.
I think that Flag Counter is the best–it takes up a small bit of space, it is colorful, and very educational. Once the map is clicked, Flag Counter has options for viewing the number of visitors in chart/graph form and detailed information, from CIA-The World Factbook, about the visitors’ countries.
This widget will inform us when people visit our blog and from what part of the world. It is located in the sidebar.
