Re: [school-discuss] TuxMathScrabble-0.5.0-rc1

We have been using Tux Paint for Windows for two years now. The configurat
ion tool will allow you to specify a location where work can be saved. So 
if you install it and point to a specific location, each students work wil
l be saved in that location. You can then copy the work to a jump drive, t
hough they use the random name file naming convention.

The saving restrictions are the only real complaint we have about Tux Pain
t. Otherwise, it's a wonderful tool for primary years. I just wish it had 
an option for simplified save [which it does] and standard file saving. 

Anyhow, getting work onto a jump drive is easy once you specific the locat
ion where the work is to be saved should be easy. Or if it's already saved
, check where it's pointing to, copy files and have kids identify their wo
rk visually..
