The American youth are social media's biggest engagers, and in some ways, its forefathers. But have educational institutions done all they can to leverage the power of social media for their students? Whether they're scared of this new frontier, budgets are tight, or just unsure how to proceed, something seems to be holding our schools back. So the question becomes, how can we help?

Enter the classroom of the future -- a vision crafted by a series of panelists and experts in education, social media strategy, and platform development. Through a series of interactive examples and discussion around new ways to get students the resources they need, we're going to ask these innovators to build us this futuristic classroom -- and we're going to ask you to help. By the end, we want everyone to have a vision of what a socially empowered, and more equal, educational system in American could look like. Then let's go make it happen.
