You need a mash-up to get kids excited: Try stumbleupon + state standards + freerice.com

As another proposal implied, there's no one tool or technology that's the answer.

Instead, let's consider using the open standards of the web and those things we already know are popular, for example:

- the random "surprise" element of the browser add-on stumble-upon

- the motivational, incentive-based reards system that comes with a site like freerice.com where kids can feed the world through their successful answers

- plus an underlying architecture of webs site partners that provide content specifically modified to meet the state standardized testing requirements at various grade levels in the key subjects.

You could pilot such a mash-up on the home page of the new broadband program website.

We're got other, research-based ideas generated from the work in our Government 2.0 program. See http://www.wikinomics.com
