In the traditional environment: The divide that exists between an adult teacher's ability or willingness to continue learning emerging technologies, and that of the youthful or young adult learner.  For example, did you know students have figured out how to use google docs as a new messaging platform. This proves how innovative AND collaborative our youth of tomorrow truly are. AND rather than gawked at or fire-walled, should be rewarded and fostered. Further, it should be *discreetly monitored* & *creatively administered* as to keep the kids utilizing the utility & prevent the bullying/negative group-think that inevitably develops.  IMHO.

My experience is that everyone at the technology company thinks it is a great idea BUT no one wants to to the initial work and more importantly the care and feeding necessary to make the program a success!
