It permits students to learn the 3 constructs plus the use of variables and modularisation. It is available to do at home and at school so seamless working between home and school and is highly relevant in all sorts of ways.
Do you have Moodle?
A nearly current version is at http://www.watiwara.org/mdl1/
It is called Website Programming 1.
I see this leading into PHP which again is very accessible.
You might also like to have a look at LiveLAMP as a way of easily having a webserver on the LAN for students to play with

I have two questions from a reluctant-Linux computing teacher:
1. With what should he introduce computing (in a Linux lab)?
- He would like experienced-based suggestions for teaching lower and middle secondary introductions to programming. Apparently, he used visual basic before. He knows of Pascal. Perhaps that's the best direction then?
2. how can he teach C to secondary-level students on Linux?
He is looking for
a) an environment suggestion
b) suggestions for on-line and offline materials
c) good sites
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has experience in these areas.
P.S. Here are some preliminary resources I've found:
