Teen learner as teacher

The Thinking Stick � The official release of Jeff teaches in Shangai - or does he? - that is, his students are teaching and he's learning, and we are all impressed! Middle school kids building a drupal site, creating a brand and a presence, uisng tools to create, share, mix, and planning a marketing plan to generate enough dollars for pizza money!
