For the local high school where I work in the school term (Y9 - Y13, 13 - 18 year pupils), I'll be installing a "Worry Web Site", which will be my Rebol/Wiki (once I've got it's subdirectories working consistently well). I got the idea from a NZ teenagers book, where the computer literate maths teacher set up a Wiki-like software to assist students by providing a space for anonymous cries for help, with a place for other students and counsellors to respond. I'm lucky to have computer literate principal who can see clear virtues for teachers and students, as well as money making opportunities! One really has to show schools how new software will save them money (or even make them money!) and enable them to meet the legal obligations, and assist teachers, parents, students.
