Traveling today so I've got a link for you rather than something original. If you are interested in some of the investments Microsoft is making in Education, browse over this site. This is a nice consolidated list that might introduce you to something new! There are a lot of good projects listed here and I would be very interested in your comments.
Comments - btw - you'll have to create an account and log in to post. I have had a lot of trouble with comment spam so I'm only allowing posts after sign in. Better yet - write up your thoughts and link back to me from your site!
