edu180atl on hiatus

Dear edu180atl community,

For 18 months many in the Atlanta community have gathered at this place to share in the common experience of everyday learning.  We’ve all been inspired by what we’ve read here; our efforts have even inspired other communities to start up similar projects .

Over the past two months it has become increasingly difficult to recruit writers.  We are now at the point where our list of writers has been exhausted.  Therefore, we will temporarily cease daily posting on the edu180atl site.  We are happy to accept new writers, but we will have to hold off publication until we have a sufficient number of writers “in the queue.”  If we do not receive  much of a response, then we will simply call it what it is: an end to a wonderful experiment.

In the meantime, we encourage you to revisit previous posts from the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school year.  Read, re-read, comment, and reply to comments.  There are MANY unfinished conversations out there that were cut short because of another lovely post that sparked another conversation.

Also, encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to write.  While this is fertile ground for education professionals, we encourage those from the realm of government and private business as well.  After all, one of the principle reasons for this project is to highlight that learning does not just happen in the classroom.  Encourage those who wrote last school year to sign up again.  Finally, if you haven’t signed up to write, we’d love to add your voice to the city-wide chorus of thoughtful reflection that has enriched our lives and minds for the past year and a half.

“180 days, 180 voices” was our goal back in August 2011.  We met that goal and exceeded it thanks to the energy of the Atlanta community.  Thanks so much!

Your edu180atl editors

    • We’re not nearly as sad that it may end as we are happy that it started in the first place! Thanks for your support.

    I would love to write again — and come summer/fall IF you would like to consider a model of writers contributing more than once or two let me know as I’ll be retired and more willing to offer more often if wishes…Stephen G Kennedy
