There is also http://www.seul.org/edu. (Simple End User Linux / Education).  
The key instigators of Schoolforge were (and still are) SEUL/edu members.

Schoolforge was set up to provide a broarder focus than just Linux in 
Education - it focus is any kind of open resource for educatational purposes.  
This includes courses and ciricula etc.

SEUL/edu is (now) solely focused on Linux in Education.  It has a searchable 
software index for Linux based education related software, case studies on 
schools using Linux, and is in the process of compiling a distribution 
neutral CD of tested and reviewed education related software.
