Tux Paint is open source drawing software, similar to Kid Pix. Because Kid Pix doesn't run very well on the computers we use at school, I have been looking for an inexpensive replacement. Tux Paint seems to do the trick. It's simple to use but doesn't have a lot of features. I prefer Kerpoof but sometimes it's nice to have something that doesn't require an internet connection. Tux Paint is my go-to program when the internet is down.
Please post a comment to share how you are using Tux Paint in the classroom.
