I agree with what many of you have commented - that the most difficult aspect is closing the gap between the research and the application.  Having worked as a teacher and with teachers, I know how difficult it is to change up what you have been doing - what works for you at the moment.  I think as researchers we need to involve practitioners as much as possible in order to find out what they are already doing and what we can provide as alternatives/tweaks that will fit smoothly into their already established routines and practices.  This is an idealized notion, one that doesn't happen often enough.  In the real world, it is difficult to organize this, but I think we don't have to think too big - practical hands-on examples during professional development and getting feedback from teachers about what they are doing and what they would like before-hand are good strategies.
