I have to present edubuntu to a few teachers of a school of young child.

So i also have to do a small document on paper that teacher can "study" 
at home

If you want create one, we should try doing this together.

I was thinking about a presentation with lot of picture and not so much 

No technical aspect of edubuntu.

I'm French (sorry for my poor English) but i read English (write is hard 
for me as you can see...)

If you're interested tell me. Maybe edubuntu community would like an 
explanation document for teacher.
