I am focused on using open sourced software to teach the topics
usually taught using closed source software. Use of word processors,
spreadsheets, graphics programs, the internet and so on.

One page linked to by your link is
This lesson plan could be adapted by changing the url given in the
lesson away from msn.com (not reliably available to open source

progressively younger age groups.
