on the Linux Laptop front, I would suggest using a LiveCD Distro that 
can be booted up with the tools you want, you can have it on a USB 
stick, get them to bring one along for the course and copy your builds, 
of course they can also install as they go along.

Some of the K12 solutions allow you to remote control their desktops so 
your presentation is replicated on their desktops.

With mixed ability classes you may need to swap individuals and get 
people to buddy up. (sorry if I am teaching you to suck eggs...)
