I'm a big fan of the BBC, and they've introduced something that is pretty cool, in my opinion.
It is a section on their site called "School Day 24," and it links students, often from different countries, to discuss issues such as terrorism, religion, marriage, ethnic struggles and education
. The various discussions are called "Link-ups" and often feature discussions between very different kinds of people. Several of the link-ups have already occured, but many are on the way, including a discussion between Mexican students and Hispanic students from Chicago. Prior to the "link-up," which is updated online about as quickly as it happens, readers have the ability to submit questions to the "link-up" moderator.
This is the kind of thing the information superhighway was built for, and I think the BBC understands that.
