edu180atl: 2012 Year in Review
Although technically we began the year in August, we mustn’t forget the amazing growth and energy that we saw in this community from January until May of last year.
However, since we are an August-May project, we’d like to share with you the activity since our first post on August 6. In the last five months volunteer writers have offered up 88 posts, receiving 19,294 views, and 389 comments from 36 different countries. This compares with 15,745 views throughout the same months in 2011–an increase in activity of over 20%!
Our readership has gained a great deal of steam this year. We are thankful to all of you that spread the word, share the project with friends and family, encourage people to write, then reward their bravery by adding a comment to their post.
We would like to let you know that finding writers for December was quite a challenge and our writer queue for 2013 is less than robust. We ask that you reach out to your friends, colleagues, and family and encourage them to write. One of the main goals of edu180atl is to emphasize that learning is NOT merely the milieu of teachers and students. We ALL have stories to tell of important moments of learning. And we need to hear those voices.
Here’s to a happy, healthy, and joyous New Year!
