Create graphic organizers
I would love to have an app that gave me options to customize my own graphic organizer. Essentially, the app would be a blank sheet of paper. On the right would be the shapes that I could drag over to the blank sheet of paper. Then, I could easily input any text into the shapes I want. The problem with Microsoft Word is that the formatting gets all wonky and it takes a long time to get the graphic organizers just the way you want them.

"Shapes" looks like a great Mac app to solve your problem. http://shapesapp.com/

Try Google Drawings as mentioned below - You can also try Microsoft Visio (if your school has a license model for MS products) or free software like OpenOffice Draw.

I live in Baltimore and plan to be @ the Hack Day event on Saturday. I am also the founder and developer of PhyzixLabs Software (http://www.phyzixlabs.com).
I think what you are looking for is a whiteboard of sort? This is exactly the type of platform my company is developing, you can try it out on the site. I would like to talk to you about your specific needs, please send me an email (ekemokai [at] gmail [dot] com), I may be even able to whip out a prototype before Saturday.
Have you tried Google Docs Drawings?
If its not what you're looking for, what would you want different?
