The end of a year is always a great moment to look back at what were the most popular 2016-posts on this blog:
- Second funny on Sunday because too funny: a science paper written by Donald J Trump (no comment)
- Devil’s advocate. A plea against Prince Ea (Casper Hulshof)
- Gartner’s hype cycle for education 2016
- Howard Gardner on his ‘multiple intelligences’: the theory is no longer current!
- Famous psychology study ‘killed by replication’: does a pencil in your mouth make you feel happy?
- Why the Myers-Briggs test is totally meaningless (video)
- Maybe the most relevant Figure from PISA, imho
But there are also classics, posts from before 2016 that remain very popular:
- So you want to compare educational systems from different countries? Where to start?

And what to expect for 2017? Many more blog posts, a Swedish translation and Chinese translation of our book, and hopefully a lot of nice people to meet along the road! Have a great New Year, dear readers and friends!
