John if you have some good ideas, check out http://www.dmlcompetition.net/
. The MacArthur foundation has done the most comprehensive studies I know of on digital youth, and the studies are always done collaboratively with grants and other institutions or individuals. This particular "contest" focuses on games and education, as they have been very focused on this. Maybe you have an idea that's worth trying out - if not it's a great group to keep up with. Good luck!
