The mission of the edu180atl project is to nurture and encourage the spirits of those who love to learn, to connect learners across disciplines and settings, and to deepen the national conversation about education by enabling parents, students, and educators to share stories of what they are learning every day.
In April 2011, the edu180atl team launched edu180atlbeta in order to test the feasibility of a such a collaborative project. The April version of edu180atl was a huge success, and the edu180atl launched the year-long project on August 1, 2011 launch. If you consider yourself a learner and are interested in sharing your voice, we hope you will consider applying to write for this year’s edu180atl project. To apply to write one 250 word post on a specific day of the 2011-12 school year, click here.
The edu180atl project wrapped up the semester with an essay by Clarkston High senior and all-around great student, Darnelle Eversley.

Teachers, this is a great way to encourage students to write -- or write something yourself - it's fun!
