There is already http://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/Projects which 
lists current projects. I have already setup a temporary page under this 
at http://wiki,ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/Projects/PresentingUbuntuToTeachers
  which is where I will be placing a bit of content shortly.

I know Paul Schulz has already placed his project content on the wiki 
itself (but has done so under his own wiki identity until such time as 
others are contributing to his work too) and upon seeing that I decided 
that for the purpose of ever changing material the already setup wiki 
place is the best option. This saves Tuxta some work too. All they need 
to do it perhaps link back from the .com.au site to the individual 
projects and solid resources once they are finished.

I'd be very much interested in such a conversation. I am collating 
information on current obstacles within the education systems, and their 
are a lot of the them. If you want to send some notes to me I will be 
happy to add it along with the other information I have collected. I 
have started creating sections for the various schools and departments 
as every school does have different challenges as well as the overall 
department side of things.
