I would also join this group. There is a lot going on here. Hope this is helpful!

Here are some great collaborative projects to get started, if you haven't ever done a collaboration with a teacher outside your home country: http://www.epals.com/projects I especially recommend The Way We Are to get started! It provides the framework for success.
You can read more in Teacher Project Forums or find partners for that project specifically: http://www.epals.com/forums/132.aspx

We would have kids (or small groups of kids) read the same book(s) and then they would "meet" to discuss them, either in a moderated chat room or via Skype. If live interaction isn't possible, we could use a group on Edmodo to discuss the books.
At the end of the book, there could be a culminating activity of some sorts that partners or small groups in each class have to collaborate on to complete.
Let me know if this interests you. I might not be looking to do this with my whole class this year (last year we did it with books we read aloud) but I may have small groups of students interested in partnering. Send a reply or leave a message here. I think it would be awesome!
