Crystal clear. I truly cannot understand why we don't make any profit of this at schools. As a related issue, also absolutely worthy for  those high skilled learners at our own schools, instead of searching only  for individual gateways.

Let our kids teach. They will learn more.

Set your class a challenge: Find something that is missing in their world or needs to be much better, and then let the loose on this site. Its a great way to implement the National Curriculum content areas of: the use, development and impact of technologies in people lives, defining problems and specifying and implementing their solutions and planning, producing and evaluating designed solutions.

PBS Kids have created this site called design squad nation, a site where kids can create new innovative ideas to make life easier. Have a look and see what kids around the world are able to design using this interactive, user friendly site
