Hopefully someone better aquained can answer more fully.
The plato site is all industry buzz words so as a techie rather than a
teacher (though I do have two children in elementary school) I can't
tell what it actually purports to do.
Two linux based systems that may be of interest are:
iTALC classroom management software http://italc.sourceforge.net and
Moodle course management software http://moodle.org
Hope that helps.
