Dominick,
Thank you for taking the time to post to a blog about your views of students and education. I am a young teacher myself and I have found that for the most part the younger the teacher is the more comfortbale they are with education. I am part of the original Nintendo generation, that is, I remember my grandmother buying me the very first Nintendo to ever come out (and yes, I will admit that it wans't the first type of electronic gaming system but it does mark a change in our educational history that created a somewhat symbiotic relationship between self and technology). I am lucky enough to feel comfortable in all different levels of technology.
Your post about student interaction in education is an extremely important one. I would love for a way to get my students involved in the reform efforts of education within the area that I teach. We also need more students at the state and national levels who are willing to help their instructors improve their education.
Thank you for your time.

Another Option- Open Innovation

Dominick, great post! I agree that it's difficult for students to share and gain visibility with their ideas in education. Another potential option I've been researching is the use of open innovation within schools. We have a free product at Spigit called Icon (http://icon.spigit.com) that allows students and teachers (with a common e-mail domain) to identify challenges and propose solutions together. I'd be happy to chat with you more if you're interested.
