    Hello Katie,
    asking a Twitter pool to solve a teaching problem is the real crowdsourced task I can see from your thoughts.
    But maybe a teacher could manage a pool of parents and students to effectively crowdsource some educational tasks. An example could be to ask the pool to give advices on new teaching paradigms, or solve the problem of garbage in the street of their city by searching successfull approaches to the problem in the world. What is your opinion?
    Thank you.
    Piero Stanchi
