There is a learning curve with all these programs, but we have started
teaching my 6 year old at home to use some of them. He actually does pretty
well with some of the more basic tools, so I think the older kids could
probably really learn them. The teachers will need to learn them first of
course, before teaching the kids. The tutorials are pretty good for that.
