My current role is Ultranet Coach for the Barwon South-West Region in the Victorian Education Dept (Australia). This role sees me working with 30 schools that can be as far as 250km apart.
As there is no Ultranet yet (still in tender process) we are all about embeding (or simply showing) 21st Century learning into schools/classrooms.

I saw your post about the collaborative project I mentioned. Not sure if you are interested in joining one of the two I've posted.
I have schools in different countries who are looking for partner schools in a collaborative one I started. The collaborative one can use any tools you want.
Not limited to Google. If you click around the pages I started you'll see that each school does a homepage with info about their country, community, etc.
then, each school does a scavenger hunt (for the students in the other countries to do as they learn about your country); then, there's a portal page for projects.
http://larowc.googlepages.com/blc (my page as a sample)
http://larowc.googlepages.com/globalcollaboration (portal page - common project page)
I haven't made an offical sign up page for the one above yet.
The other one is on historical events. I'm looking for schools to do projects on the histories of their communities, famous explorers, events, etc.
There's a sign up form on this page.
The two sites are different. One is looking for partner schools. the other just asks for you to link to our page and list historical projects you do with Google tools.
Let me know if you're interested. Both you and Shavon could both join.
