Hi there,

TeacherTool sounds really cool.  I installed it using apt-get but I can't
seem to find it in a directory to start it or in a menu.  How do I start it?

Welcome to the list Mark!  Actually not entirely what you're looking for,
but TeacherTool will do that.  I believe TeacherTool is now included with
the K12LTSP distro.  

Look for it on the disc....I believe it's on disc 4

What you can do...using a GUI....is select a student or several students
and see a list of their running processes.  You can also kill the
process...launch a process....or log the student off.  Very cool.

If you want to integrate VNC so you can demo your screen to other
machines....aka the whole lab.....red on....

You can find a how-to and so forth here 
 Let me know if the link doesn't work.  

You can also download the files here
