Several readers have mentioned to me that there is no action follow-up. We're sharing ideas that have no place to go.
What we need is a forum -- a conference? a shark tank? -- that connects funders, ideators, content sources, outreach services and researchers. Content sources might be other state departments (parks, public health, human services... and of course education) along with non-profits. Outreach services might include companies that market and sell educational products both to schools and into businesses. Researchers might be professors and doctoral students or it might be organizations that study learning games.
How might this kind of connection or event work best? Is this the way to make things happen, or is this just a nice warm feeling of sharing ideas around the fire.
