I've been following the discussion with interest; it reflects some of 
the conversations we've been having about botany labs here.  The 
technology applications are great & engage student interest, but the 
focus of the discussion on plant ed so far seems to be on imaging 
rather than plant structure & function.  

The problem I see with our students is their failure to link the 
prepared material & images to 3-D living plant structure & function.  
That is why we use images in the first place - isn't it?  We do have 
the students work with some living materials & fresh preparation 
already.  How can we link that to use of educational technology?
