180 Voices. 180 Stories.
I know only one thing about the technologies that await us in the future:
We will find ways to tell stories with them.”
– Jason Ohler
The edu180atl project is about learning. In fact, each of the 180 posts which will be featured on this site over the course of the 2011-12 school year will be reactions to the prompt, what did you learn today? The edu180atl project is about education. It’s about challenging the notion that standardized tests successfully measure and adequately inspire learning. The edu180atl project is about stories. There are many stories in the world of education and many voices which are not heard. The purpose of this project is to honor the many diverse stories of learning in the Atlanta area.
Learning is personal and lifelong, and it is often uncovered by observation, exploration, and reflection. The edu180atl project will publish 180 personal stories of learning and will inspire many others.
Let’s change the narrative.
Let’s tell a new story.
