I edited, please let me know if its more clear. Thanks
The current status of the GPA is:
The 4th grade classroom has a bank of 6 machines that can boot Sugar on a
The 4th grade specialist has one used laptop that can boot Sugar on a Stick.
Access to the PCs in the computer lab is problematic and likely not to
happen very much.
There are two laptop carts of 25 bought last year Macbooks but we can not
boot Sugar on a Stick on these machines even using a Boot-helper CD. See
https://answers.launchpad.net/soas/+question/81566for gory details.
The teachers are enthusiastic! The goal is to be able to use the classroom
bank of computers for "Center Work" that is time in the day when students
break into groups and work on different things in different parts of the
room. Sugar would become one center. We also want to be able to do whole
class instruction by signing out a laptop cart of Macbooks.
We have sufficient privileges to install Virtual Box on the laptop cart
Since we can't seem to boot the MacBooks directly, but we could use Virtual
Box, can anyone think of way to use Virtual Box that would allow students to
use the info on their sticks so they can at another point in time use a
classroom computer and not always need to use the same MacBook?
