[school-discuss] What to ask?

Hello everyone. Most of you will remember me, I hope. :) I have some interesting information and a request for you to discuss.

I will be visiting Johannesburg, South Africa for about a week at the end of February. While I'm there I will meet Edward Holcroft from NetDay South Africa (http://www.netday.org.za/) and see some of their installations ( Hi Ed! :) ). I've contacted various magazines about writing articles on this visit in the hope of defraying some of my expenses and had some interest from Linux Magazine, Phi Beta Kappan, Converge Magazine, and From Now On.

I plan to write different articles for each magazine, specific to their needs and expectations about what their readers would like to read. What I would like you to discuss and guide me on is just what questions you would like me to ask, and what areas to explore, with NetDay, with the students, teachers, and administrators of the schools they've installed networks in, and perhaps with others you might think of. (Ed, don't worry, this won't evolve into a week-long time sink. :) I'll keep things moving in a spritely manner.)

Thanks for your guidance, folks!
