Hi: I am looking for advice introducing grade schoolers to Linux.
An opportunity to teach an enrichment program for my kids school was presented to me and thought I would share my enthusiasm for UM and advocate a little. I remember growing up with apple 2s and remember how it shaped me. Kids today are presented with Samsung Chromebooks and I fear data mined before they even understand the concept of informed choice.
Poking around the Internet I found a few sites that have virtual CLI and others that provide a rudimentary explanation, but I am looking for something less dry that will grab their attention. Maybe some sort of web based simulator. Aesthetically, UM is marvelous and one could probably burn a semester just theming.
Ah, forgot to mention, school policy forbids installing anything on the Chromebooks, and, enabling developer mode to boot a usb would probably give the administrators a cardiac arrest. If not for that I would give each a thumb-drive with UM 16.04.
Any thoughts? I was also entertaining something like a virtual console or chrome remote desktop through the browser. Possibly to a LAN Frankenstein box or out to a droplet.
Any suggestions would be most welcomed or an arrow in the right direction. Thanks
