I agree with this, as a teacher i need ideas (which will work in a whole class situation) to help me enable kids to use the physical interactivity of the raspberry pi.
whole class situation = 30 ish kids of vastly differing abilities
I work in both the DT dept and the IT dept. The DT dept has just got a RepRap 3d printer (not quite working yet) but i am very keen to get my hands on it and see what it can do (and if it can do anything with the Pi)
