HILITES is the oldest email list on the Internet devoted exclusively to project-based classroom learning projects. It has operated continuously since it was introduced on the pioneering FrEdMail Network in 1985.

HILITES is the ultimate collection of high-quality, online collaborative learning project announcements posted by classroom teachers! Each announcement describes a learning project that engage students in other classes in one or more collaborative learning activities.

We don't post questions, announcements, requests for pen pals or sister classes or any other messages which do not support a concrete, multi-lateral learning project that engages students in more than one classroom. We will post surveys and requests for information only if they include activities, products, or outcomes which can also benefit contributing classes.

Because we do so much of the filtering for you, you can feel confident that you're getting the best selection of projects listed anywhere, which means that you won't have to wade through hundreds of extraneous messages to find the project announcements you're looking for.
