</a></blockquote><div><br>I am a volunteer who is providing level one sys admin support to a public middle school in San Francisco, California, and documenting the same for a video project called the Digital Tipping Point. The basic story line is that I travel around the world filming the project, and then I test out what I have learned in one single public middle school in San Francisco, to see if we can tip that one school. We are not succeeding so far. But this technology might help us. When we were in Extremadura, Spain, we saw technology that would allow a teacher to grab all the students desktops, or just one or two desktops, and control those desktops from the teacher's station. It supposedly is similar to this tool:
<br><br><a href="http://www3.telus.net/public/robark/Fl_TeacherTool/">http://www3.telus.net/public/robark/Fl_TeacherTool/</a><br><br>That would so blow the socks off of all the teachers at the school if we could implement it. Currently, we are running about 23 chubby terminals from an Edubuntu server with about 2 GB of RAM and a dual core with the chips running at about 2 ghz, I think. I am wondering if we could get Landscape or FL_TeacherTool implemented at this school, and if Canonical and / or Kristian might be interested in helping out.
<br><br>Thanks either way! <br></div></div><br>
