Children since 7 years old can begin to program with e-Toys and, later, go on with Smalltalk. Squeak works in more than 15 platforms with the same image and has great multimedia capabilities. Take a look at www.squeakland.org and www.squeak.org But, if what the teacher is looking an "nice" IDE as Delphi, VS, etc. I thing gambas is the best option. Take a look at gambas.sourceforge.net. It's the old BASIC brought to linux with OOP and serious improvements (not VB, but with tools to make easy the movements to VB programmers).
