Making the fire burn after it is almost out.

I am on fire! I have a white hot burning passion that allows me to infuse the students with energy and keeps me current in my trade. I replaced a teacher who retired because "The Fire" was out. He told me that he got out because he was done, the fire had burned white hot for 29 years and he was done. I have nothing but admiration and respect for his decision. The issue we have is there are far too many teachers that have lost the fire. Nothing has changed in there classrooms for years and they are just doing the same old thing. My question is this, what is the best creative tool can we give them to allow them to have a sucessful experience that will rekindle the fire. My insides tell me that perhaps photoshop touch might be the place to start. So any thoughts on how we refuel because I am in a place that needs it very bad!
