From what I see–and I may be wrong; I’m looking from the outside in–there’s an interesting opportunity for somebody who wants to train high school teachers how to incorporate new social media stuff–Facebook, wikis, collaborative tools, not to mention instant messenger and txt–into the normal relationship and work flow with students.
The teachers are way behind the students in this area. They need to catch up. That’s the need.
And who pays? Maybe the teachers, maybe the school districts. Maybe this will work.
That’s where the plan comes in. Come up with a valid business model, figure out how to deliver, to whom to sell, and make it happen.
