For elementary kids, do you set up Google accounts? I thought kids had to be 13 (http://innovate-educate.pbworks.com/f/Crib_iGoogle.pdf) to have a Google account, so I have not encouraged our elementary teachers to set up student accounts. You probably addressed this in your session, but I couldn't make it to the conference :-( Thanks!
