Skoolaborate http://www.skoolaborate.com Skoolaborate provides schools from around the world with the opportunity to collaborate in a single 'virtual' educational environment.
Using Teen Second Life as it's base.
It consists of several islands that are collaboratively run by partner schools and their students. It also has a blog, a wiki and soon, integrated units of work and a adult grid presence.
Skoolaborate aims to provide a common place to share and try ideas around how virtual worlds and web 2.0 technologies can engage our students and increase their learning outcomes.
In the longer term we hope to make our virtual experiences meaningful and authentic by running a series of events aimed at improving the educational outcomes for all students.

The Pacific Rim Exchange program grew out of a dinner conversation between a group of teachers in my district and a visiting group of teachers from our sister school in Kyoto, Japan (Kyoto Gakuen High School). We were discussing the possibility of setting up video conferencing between our schools so that our future exchange students could interact prior to their exchanges, possibly getting to know each other a bit, and maybe if we were lucky they would learn a little of their host country’s language before their exchange.
