A SUMMARY OF RECENT WEB ACTIVITIES BY EDUPEDIA ASSOCIATES
1.Towards the last week of July 2012 we decided to reach out through the web to more students,teachers,parents and schools beyond Festac, nay, Nigeria!We have managed to do this by opening some blogs on WORDPRESS, BLOGGER and others.These are:
a. https://lagosbooksclub.wordpress.com… for educational tips on WAEC/NECO/JAMB
b.http://mile2herald.wordpress.com (but previously operated as LAGOSBOOKSCLUB.COM AND MILE2HERALD WITH MORE THAN 200,000 VIEWS)… now modified mainly for news and opinions on education,politics,sports especially soccer and arsenal,crime,religion etc
c.http://edupedianigeria.wordpress.com(also known as LIFE’S CRYSTALS AND GEMSTONES)…for our past and present students and their tutors,books and libraries,movies,music,compiled quotations and related publications from the web.
19.And there are other blogs registered or started with little or no content but retained for emergencies in case WordPress or Blogger decides to be Mr Bigstuff as they are wont to.These include
ACTIVE BLOGS,SOCIAL NETWORKS AND TWEETS
For the sake of traffic to our blogs their posts are automatically “shared” or “pressed” out by WordPress to GOOGLE+, FACEBOOK,TWITTER,STUMBLEUPON, TUMBLR, PINTEREST, DIGG and POCKET.These networks are also authorized to share out tweets on our behalf.This unfortunately looks like spam on TWITTER AS IF WE ARE TWEETING SAME MATERIAL MANY TIMES OVER.But the reality is that we tweet just once to TWITTER per post.
EDUCATION-RELATED WRITE-UPS UNDER OUR BLOGS
15.This is a collection of what we have produced/achieved so far to ease the modern-day realities of students and their teachers .It is also our way of “preaching” on a national level what needs to be done to improve the system. The topics compiled under these blogs are useful for interactions or discussions with us not only for clinics or seminars but as references by teachers,schools, parents and students
16.We have divided the topics for easy reference under main headings shown on the handbills posted recently.We indicated clearly on these handbills that we conduct SUBJECT CLINICS AND SEMINARS in line with topics found on our blogs.
