Well, I don't know whether this can/might help you, but to my  
underestanding, the OpenOffice.org Education Projet is more focused  
on "teaching" the source (OpenOffice.org source) code. As example,  
there are some reports available (all written by students).

As -  IMHO good - example, a feature, recently integrated in  
OpenOffice.org : http://eric.bachard.free.fr/Education/ECN/ 
(other extensions to this features are scheduled for the coming year).

Our problem is that we do'nt have enough of resources to attend the  
OSCON (travel is too expensive), and that's why we didn't propose  
anything. But if you consider this work interesting, feel free to use  
these reports as examples if you consider them enough interesting.

I hope this bring some information to the debate, else please  
nevermind :-)
