Can you get Expression Studio and Visual Basic Pro through Dreamspark for deployment in School? I thought it was for students to use at home.

What are you guys planing to deploy for the new ICT?
I have deployed the following so far
- Small Basic (This is free)
- Kodu Game Labs (This is free)
Going to deploy
- Visual Basic Pro 2010 SP1 (Free through DreamSpark)
- Expression Studio Ultimate (Free through DreamSpark)
- Windows Phone SDK
- Android Devlopment, probs looking at Esclipe, unless we can get it working with Visual Studio 2010
Any other software ideas?
Also is it best to have the Windows SDK with Visual Studio?
This is going to be made with APP-V, so looks like Visual Studio, Expression Studio, Windows Phone SDK will have to be one package because of all the SDK and intergration between the products, does that sound the right thing to do?
We apologize regarding any inconvenience, however the software provided through our DreamSpark offering is intended to be direct to students. The access keys, which you request through the order management system (https://www.dreamspark.com/highschool/wayf.aspx) are disseminated to students, which should be utilized on their own personal machines.
You can now deploy in Labs for student use but there is a subscription. $99 pa or $499 for premium. Still sounds good.
Had all these installed on our standard image 3 years ago, before any mention of programming

Just put Kodu in a lab for our ICT teacher to play with, looks brilliant as a starting point for tricking Year 7s into programming - no typing, really quick results, shiny graphics... the only danger is that everything else looks boring by comparison!
Had a look at Adventure Game Studio the other day as well, still quite straightforward but looks like an actual IDE so could be a good way to get them used to that whilst still being based around making games (and therefore interesting to them)

We installed python a while back.
Notepad++ is also a good easy to use IDE
a text editor.But what about the children?!? How will they learn anything ever again unless they use the biggest, shiniest environment on the planet?Notepad++ is also a good easy to use IDE
I think Visual Basic 2010 and Expression are available with the Academic Alliance for lab installs (which is included with EES). AA has also merged with Dreamspark.
