Hi! I'm an engineering student at Olin College. However, one of my passions is education and improving educational systems. This year, myself and five friends are working to try to develop collaborative tools for the classroom to aid communication and information flow, in ways that benefit teachers, parents, and students.
I'd love to hear more about people using various tools in education, struggles you face with education, and ideas you have about it.

Wow. That's a pretty big list on the short description.
I like the idea of anything that will help students learn to collaborate with modern tools. I think the stumbling blocks are the teachers/administration/IT staff. This project will have to be VERY easy to use, cost next to nothing, need almost no tech supprt, never have any down time and keep the middle schoolers out of trouble.
I am very interested. I voted for you already. Let me know what you come up with.
I would be very interested in your project for Middle Schoolers to assist with higher level thinking skills, and collaboration. Let me know when you are ready to trial it, and I can see if my students can help out.
With your passions in Education Reform and
Ed Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
