Document Workflow: Still on the Cutting Edge for K-12

Chris Dawson points out that document workflows are still a revelatory experience for most K-12 teachers and administrators. Six years ago I was excited about using wikis and blogs in our school, but I really wanted to get workflows going. This was pretty raw sledding in the old Zope CMF, and I definitely slowed down SchoolTool development for a while trying to stick WFMC-compliant workflows everywhere, but it is still depressing that the advantages of document workflows have not made the lives of educators easier.

Yes, administrative efficiency is not the end goal, but we need those time savings to focus on the more important bits.
