and a little child shall lead us...

One thing that the inquiry process has really driven home to me is the amount of "experts" that are in the classroom.  I have 26 creative, innovative students that are ready, willing and able to share their expertise at a moment's notice, all you have to do is ask.  The students have taught each other how to create powerpoints, use pic collage, stop action movie apps, iMovie, and poplet to share their information.  They have been troubleshooters for technical glitches, and snafus.  …
