Theorists and practitioners propose collaborative learning as a recommended methodology within constructivist environments. Concept mapping in particular has been shown to be an effective tool to support collaboration among students. However, seldom are teachers and students provided with the appropriate communication and collaboration tools, many of which are commonplace in corporations and large organizations. In this paper we present Nicho, a set of software tools that facilitate the creation of a collaborative network of schools, enabling students and teachers to take advantage of communication and collaboration tools. Nicho provides students and teachers within an organization of schools with email, chat, CmapTools integration, and their own personal "space" for file storage, accessible from any computer in the school or remotely.
